Birth of a New Brain: Healing from Postpartum Bipolar Disorder

Dyane Harwood

In Birth of a New Brain, Dyane Harwood gives voice to countless women who’ve suffered postpartum bipolar disorder. As a therapist specializing in bipolar, I’ve seen how this condition can be misdiagnosed and mistreated, especially in the prenatal and postpartum phases.
