I’m really thrilled with the cover of Beyond The Baby Blues. This book is currently being printed and will be available from September if not before.
Myself, Benison O’Reilly and Cathie Knox, CEO of the Gidget Foundation, are co-authors of this first comprehensive Australian handbook for PND (though we now refer to it as ‘perinatal anxiety and depression’ and I’ll be posting more about that in the future.)
It was tremendously difficult to find an image for the front cover. We three co-authors, plus our publisher and editor, all agreed that we wanted a photograph of a mum and baby. But how to find something that was thoughtful and reflective rather than an over-perfect image of smiling mum and bub?
It took a lot of searching to find an image and this was the only one that all of us saw and said: ‘Yes!’
To read more about the book, here is the back cover with its explanatory blurb.
Have you had PND? I have and I will be writing about it a lot over the next few months.
Does this cover photograph appeal?
We see it as reflective and hopeful. We hope you agree, what do you think?
I’m linking this to Point & Shoot over at the lovely sunny + scout, where you can see some really gorgeous baby photos amongst others today. I know this isn’t really a photo from my weekend, except that the front cover is a photo and seeing it finalised really made my weekend and got me all emotional.
