“Postpartum Depression for Dummies”

Kinshasha talked with Dr. Shoshanna Bennett about her new book, “Postpartum Depression for Dummies”.

Contrary to popular belief, pregnancy is not always an exciting, happy or glowing experience. Clinical depression affects 15-20% of pregnant women, sometimes hitting so hard that the moms-to-be attempt suicide. Mothers of multiples are at even higher risk with more than 25% suffering during pregnancy and postpartum.

The new mother of eight in LA needs regular mental health assessment. Prenatal and postpartum depression is a hidden illness with potential grave consequences.

Kinshasha talked with Fred Burks the founder of “WantToKnow.info

Before resigning from the US State Department in 2004 due to excessive secrecy demands, Fred Burks served many years as a language interpreter for presidents and other dignitaries. He interpreted for Bush, Clinton, Gore, Cheney, and many other top officials of the US and other countries. Having participated in numerous secret meetings where the only people allowed were the principals and their interpreters, he has acquired important inside information and contacts.

After receiving a wealth of eye-opening information on major cover-ups from respected friends and colleagues, Fred was inspired to develop this website in October 2002. Continually opening to divine guidance, Fred has dedicated himself both to getting the word out about the cover-ups, and to inspiring others to help transform ourselves and our world through love and empowerment. He is currently executive director of the PEERS network of websites and manager of WantToKnow.info.

Fred has also helped develop and foster several inspiring communities and websites, including Moment of Love and the free Personal Growth Courses. To read some of his inspirational writings, Fred’s deepest commitment in life is “I give all that I am into the service of All That Is.”
