From Shattered Dreams: My Journey Through Postpartum Psychosis


Dorothy R. Ruhwald's book, From Shattered Dreams, chronicles Dorothy's personal experience with postpartum psychosis and postpartum depression. Excerpts from medical records are included, showing clearly the difference between her subjective experience and the clinical, objective view of observers. The book emphasizes Dorothy's journey through mental, emotional, and spiritual healing. Although From Shattered Dreams is a book about postpartum psychosis and depression, because of the similarity of symptoms between postpartum psychosis/depression and other mental illness, it would be a valuable support to those touched by any mental illness. Dorothy has shared her experience with postpartum psychosis through an interview on CBC radio, an article in the Calgary Herald newspaper, and an article in Woman's World Magazine. She has also had the opportunity to tell her story to health-care workers at a conference on Postpartum Mood Disorders.
