You may be able to find some or all of these publications at your Public Library.  However, if you are planning to purchase a book, we ask that you please consider buying it online through using our affiliate store below

We update our store with relevant new publications whenever they become available. However, if you are looking for a specific publication and/or subject matter related to postpartum depression / perinatal mood and anxiety disorders but cannot find it here, please contact us by email or phone and we will be glad to assist you in any way possible.
