A feminist perspective on postnatal depression.


Many women will experience postnatal depression (PND) after the birth of their child and will receive treatment which is generally medically prescribed. The definitions and treatment of PND to a great extent remain in the hands of the medical profession: an area dominated by men, where PND is usually perceived as an individual illness. Christine Jebali explores from the alternative viewpoint of feminist theory PND as a condition exclusive to women.
