This book really helped me after the birth of my first child. So much info and support for all the things that nobody prepares you for. All the birth prep focuses on the actual birth, nothing for the feelings and challenges afterwards as a new Mom. This book does that. Especially helpful to me was the section on PPD.

I found this book to be an excellent comfort, as well as a great practical resource. The book sensitively and honestly addresses the wide range of emotions I experienced after my child's birth--many of these emotions I didn't expect, and some scared me. I recommend this book to any expectant parent--I found it reassuring to turn to for support.

I really didn't like this book for several reasons:

- The writing style is weird. The author repeats herself a lot and the verbiage seems wordy??! I felt that a lot of the concepts in the book would have been clearer if she had just said what she meant in a more concise manner. THIS ANNOYED ME TO NO END...so after a couple chapters I gave up.
- The references and resources are all based out of the USA so if you are in Canada this book does not help much.
- The insights about postpartum depression may be helpful but there are other books out there that are written much better- ei. Birthing from Within

If you are curious about this book go get it from your local library - I would not waste your money on this book.

I liked reading it, this book had useful tips and tools for nurturing the new mother, however, I found the book to be dated though, and somewhat irrelevant to modern day women.

HASH(0x994e339c) out of 5 stars Excellent overview of postpartum needs May 6 2007
By Lauren Ross - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As a new mom and as a therapist specializing in postpartum issues, I highly recommend this book. It's an excellent resource for families expecting a baby, covering important topics such as postpartum depression and anxiety, building a support network, and how to plan for the postpartum period in order to make a smooth transition into parenthood.

I read this book for my postpartum doula certification. It is so helpful and really makes me feel more confident in working with new mothers. An excellent book that is a wonderful resource for anyone who has a friend or family member who is having a baby.

HASH(0x994e3660) out of 5 stars Good Perspective on Becoming a New Mother Aug. 30 2011
By mlp - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I felt this book was insightful into some experiences that new mothers have. It was helpful to read that other mothers have experiences that were similar to my own at times. The book also gives a good perspective for partners, friends, doulas, or other family members about what a new mother may want/need during those first several weeks/months of development into a new parent.

Sometimes we think of the birth or pregnancy as the development into a parent and forget that the first year is quite the transformation as well. This book discusses that transformation from the perspective of women that have gone through it. A very useful book.
