To all our readers:

We are so happy with the blog’s activity and the comments we have received since the blog launched last year. Please keep in mind that the purpose of our blog is not to provide individual consultation. Responding to individual requests for consultation on specific patients exceeds the capacity and goal of the blog . However, as I review some of the comments and questions which have come in, I note that many answers to these questions may be found on our website at www.womensmentalhealth.org (use the search engine on the site to help locate specific topics on our site).

We want to continue to encourage discussion among clinicians on the issues in reproductive psychiatry that we address in this blog. Keep the comments coming, and thanks.
