Most new moms have to face a number of challenges after giving birth. It ranges from breastfeeding the baby to sleepless nights. As a result, some mothers develop the “baby blues” because motherhood can get so overwhelming sometimes. In worldwide statistics, 10% of pregnant women and 13% of women who have just given birth develop postpartum depression (PPD). It is advisable to seek counseling. Still, some prefer support from loved ones. They even turn to alternative methods of postpartum depression treatment, self-help books, and programs.

One of these postpartum depression treatment programs is the Destroy Depression System. It contains the e-book, Destroy Depression: 7 Steps to a Happy and Healthy Lifestyle That You Can Control. Aside from that, it comes with:


  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) Workbook and Tools – This includes tools to help the user keep track of her daily, weekly, and monthly progress;
  • The Depression-Free Mediterranean Diet Book – This e-book suggests Mediterranean recipes that can help in overcoming depression effectively;
  • The Goal-Setting Workshop: Take Control of Your Life and Design Your Future – This e-book helps in setting achievable and measurable goals;
  • FREE Lifetime Updates – This keeps the user updated with the latest information, researches, and tips about managing depression.

Sufferers of postpartum depression sometimes feel alone in their journey of overcoming it. Brooke Shields, the author of Down Came the Rain: My Journey Through Postpartum Depression, has written about her experiences in dealing with postpartum depression. It is an inspiring memoir that gives hope to mothers suffering from PPD.

If you know someone who is suffering from it, being there for them would help them in many ways.

Motherhood is certainly a rewarding but overwhelming stage in a woman’s life. Sometimes all they need is our support and assurance that we are with them in their journey.
