Anne-Marie at A Mama’s Rant sent me this book in one of my darkest hours. A tribute, I think, to the power of this blogging community. My psychologist calls it my own little support group. And she’s right. Because it was here, and by here I mean the cyber here, that I realized I wasn’t the only one. And here that total strangers reached out and offered me advice, comfort, even books.

So in that spirit, I’m going to do what Anne-Marie did, and mail this book off to the next Mutha Blogga who needs it. I know some of you may not be blogging about your PPD, or really care to leave me a comment discussing it, so the first person to email me and ask for Inconsolable by Marrit Ingman will have it mailed to them, as it was mailed to me. Just one Mommy to the next.

All I ask is you do the same when you are done. Hand it off to a Mom who needs it. ***book no longer available***

p.s. I’m over at BlogHer today!


  1. I’ve been wanting to read that. I read Marrit’s blog when I can, and I love her writing.

    I’m not saying send the book to me, though. My PPD is under control at the moment. It should go to someone who needs it more.

  2. And this is why mothers should rule the world.

  3. More proof that momma bloggers kick butt together…

  4. People can say whatever they want about Mommybloggers, but they can really come through for each other. I’m really glad to be a part of the community.

  5. Very cool of you to do that 🙂

    Umm.. speaking of shipping things, I’ve got just the cure for you..

    Paczki day is in ONE week – send me your addy!!

  6. I agree with Angel! Mothers SHOULD rule the world.

    Way cool, Queen 🙂

  7. This is why I don’t feel so alone when my kids are driving me nuts. People like you are awesome. And Mamas DO rule the world. Everyone else is just slow to notice and appreciate it.

  8. i saw you over at sarah’s!


  9. PPD is sooo misunderstood, the more mommies write about it, I feel more Moms will come forward. I always pass out all my Mommy books to new Moms and ask that that once they are done, they do the same. We are a Village Of Mommies keeping it together. Will check out her website, thanks for the referral!

  10. If you haven’t sent the book to anyone yet, I could sure use it. I’m having a horrible time dealing with my PPD right now. I thought it was getting better since I stopped birth control, but I’m right back where I was. I’m even on medication. I am ready to try something different. Let me know if you still have it.
