Expert” letter below.  This letter should be unique and personalized yet
scholarly in its approach, using academic information to support your opinions
and suggestions.


Dear Ashford Expert,
Help!  My best friend had a beautiful baby girl 6
weeks ago, and while I think that this should be a happy time for her, she
doesn’t seem to be enjoying it at all.  When I visited the other day, she was
wearing pajamas that looked (and smelled) like she’d been wearing them for
days.  She kept joking that she’s “no good at the mom thing” yet, and would try
to laugh it off, but I’m worried!  She isn’t interested in going out to shop for
cute baby clothes, even though I offered to buy, and she says that she’s not
ready to come to our “moms group” which meets just once a month for a few hours
because she says that she doesn’t want to burden her husband.  What gives?  How
can I help her get out of this funk?  Should I be worried about her or her
little girl?
--Flustered Friend


Your response should answer the questions asked by “Flustered Friend” and
include the following:

  • What is Postpartum Depression? 
  • Analyze and comment on at least one of the following major themes: Health
    and Well-Being, Family and Parenting, Education, Culture, or Gender, as factors
    influencing the developmental (physical, cognitive and psychosocial) outcomes
    for the mother, father/partner, and infant.
  • How can Postpartum Depression influence the short- and long-term development
    of the infant? Be sure to address the physical, cognitive, and psychosocial
    domains of development.
  • Provide at least one local and one wide-ranging (i.e. internet or phone)
    resource that someone with Postpartum Depression, or someone with a loved one
    suffering from Postpartum Depression, can access to find more information and/or
    get help.  Include all relevant information on how to contact each resource.

After the letter, this post should include citations in APA format as
outlined in the Ashford Writing Center for all information and
resources included in the letter.
