Most Helpful Customer Reviews

The unique quality of this book is its sensitive analysis of an intimate experience shared by many women, but rarely recognized and even more rarely revealed of fear of a certain stigmatisation, especially by the established professional who enters motherhood for the first time, often unprepared, and struggles to adapt to her new condition. This self-reflexive stream of consciousness writing, in which the author admits her pain but is also critical of herself and of those surrounding her, even her devoted husband, will reassure those who have fought similar emotions and believed they were unique to them while they are really natural symptoms of a frequent post-partum experience that, with a little help, can and usually is soon overcome. I believe that expecting and young mothers will feel grateful to the author for her honest treatment of the subject. It may even bring peace to those who struggled with such feelings years ago.

1 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Denver Kai on September 22, 2005
When I had my first child, I found out that few people really talk honestly about the metamorphosis that one undergoes in becoming a mother. I wanted a look inside another new mother's life. I found this book to be truthful and validating. Sometimes wonderful, sometimes painful, certainly thought provoking, I enjoyed this book very much.
