The Chicago Tribune's two-part series about postpartum depression."Part 1: Descent into Darkness: Melanie Stokes had wanted a baby daughter for most of her life. But after child's birth, Melanie was stricken with a largely misunderstood mental illness that can be difficult to treat. It robbed her of her job and, ultimately, her will to live. Part 2: From pain, a new purpose. Jennifer Mudd Houghtaling turned to her mother for support after she fell into the grip of postpartum depression. Now her mother had joined with others to educate the public about the illness and to make sure no one else's daughter dies." According to the series, "postpartum depression, some experts say, is the most common yet most frequently undiagnosed complication of pregnancy, affecting somewhere from 10 to 20 percent of women who give birth, or almost half a million women every year."
