The site has alot of information for new mothers and new fathers. The PSI live
chat room for new moms is great. It is offered once a week on Tuesday from 5:30
p.m. to 7:00 p.m. There is also a self-assessment survey which is beneficial
to new moms.

Technical Remarks:

The site's main menu is on the left side and I find that somewhat difficult to
navigate through. The alpha subject index, however, is very easy to find
specific information.

I spent about a half hout looking through this web site. The topic has always
interested me since I, as a woman, am at risk for postpartum stress. When I
first got onto the website I was a little overwhelmed by the way it was set up.
Its a little confusing, but after figuring it out, it has a lot of very
educational information.

Technical Remarks:

The way the website is set up is a little confusing, but once you figure it out,
it's easy to navigate through. The way the text is set up isnt very clear and I
think with the right set up, this web site could be more wonderful than it
already is.

While not very interactive, the site had a ton of information about Postpartum
Depression and contained resource after resource about it. I think the site
would be great for anyone interested in researching Postpartum or interested in
it for any reason. Including a topic for a paper. While generally not something
taught in class, there is more then enough resources to creat a project for an
assignment, incorporating it into the class subject (depending on what that is).
I spent almost 2 hours searching through the different materials and I didn't
even get halfway through!

Technical Remarks:

The site is very easy to use. The only irritating thing is the links are on the
left (a LONG list of them) and they take up almost half the screen where the
information appears... some of the colors were a little "funky" too.
