    You might want to check out my memoir which is the first book to address bipolar, peripartum onset/postpartum bipolar. It’s titled "Birth of a New Brain – Healing from Postpartum Bipolar Disorder" with a foreword by perinatal psychiatrist Dr. Carol Henshaw.

    It’s on Amazon now for pre-sales (only $2.99 on Kindle) and it will be published by Post Hill Press on October 10th. I’m deeply honored it has been endorsed by Dr. Kay Redfield Jamison, author of "An Unquiet Mind" and a world-famous expert on bipolar disorder.
