Making Mummy Better

A Child’s experience of postnatal depression.

A wonderfully illustrated, large picture book telling the story of Sally, whose mum has had a new baby and is now suffering from post-natal depression. Written for 3-9 year olds whose mother is in the same situation, this book provides comfort and reassurance that, with help, support and time, their mum will also get better again.

Denise Scott lives with her 2 children in Canberra in the A.C.T. She suffered antenatal and postnatal depression with her second child. Her work experience has included Nursing and family support work. Since graduating from the Australian catholic University's Bachelor of Social Work in 1998, Denise has worked in Child Protection Services, Disability Services, and is currently working for Centacare providing individual, family and relationship counselling. Denise has been involved with the A.C.T Postnatal Depression Support Group in both committee and telephone support roles. Her special interest is in counselling children and families. She hopes that this book, her first, will help other families come to terms with postnatal depression and provide comfort to children in the knowledge that their mother will get well.
