Editorial Reviews

Review

Culturally sensitive, thoroughly researched, clearly presented, this book fills an enormous gap in literature on women's health. -- Penny Simkin, founder, Doulas of America

Few works address the needs of the new mother during the first 12 months of her child's life. Mothering the New Mother is designed to fill that gap. -- Ways of Caring, published by La Leche League International

Thoroughly well-written and very much needed. -- Booklist

Format: Paperback
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.

Format: Paperback
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.
Read it, before you need it!

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.

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.
