"Psychopharmacology and Pregnancy: Treatment Efficacy, Risks, and Guidelines provides guidance on the psychopharmacologic treatment of both pregnant women and women considering pregnancy, and it addresses several important topics to keep in mind when treating this special population, including consent procedures, ongoing critical review of the literature, and available alternative treatments. It would be a valuable reference to any clinician who may potentially treat peripartum women." (Annette M. Matthews, Journal of Clinical Psychiatry, Vol. 76 (6), June, 2015) "This book surveys the occurrence of mental illness in pregnancy and explains recommendations for treating pregnant patients with these disorders. ... Any clinician who cares for pregnant women would benefit from using this book, but it is particularly relevant for those working at the interface of mental health and obstetrics. ... It serves as an excellent tool for all those who are caring for pregnant women with mental illness." (Sheila Lahijani, Doody's Book Reviews, November, 2014)
