Unlike most self-help books, whose gimmicks are evident in the first chapter and merely reiterated throughout the rest of the book, each chapter of Mother Nurture covers fresh territory and offers the appropriate solutions. From sleep deprivation to rekindling the relationship with your partner, it's all in here. Problems are laid out using examples and the advice is practical, doable, and in plain Engish. All moms are sure to see themselves in this book, and there is plenty for dads to mull over as well (leave this book lying open to the chapters on intimacy, and if he picks it up, it may just disappear for days while he reads it all). This is now my gift to all new parents, and many of the veterans, within my circle of friends. And if I fail to improve my own lot as a mom, it will be strictly my own fault!

I've read scores of baby-related advice books, but until now have never come across a book that is so directed at helping the mother. It's such a relief to read in Mother Nurture that much of a mother's exhaustion and depression has very real, physiological problems that can be corrected. The authors help direct women towards solving whatever mom-related problem they're experiencing. It's a wise, sympathetic, and intelligent book.

Rick once again does a wonderful job explaining deeper ( and scientific) issues with easily understood verbiage. If every person/couple invested just enough time to read this book and apply the info in their life, I know the divorce rate would actually decline. I'm reading this after raising two children and experiencing divorce, even though my outcome ended up great seven years later.the road was rough getting to the other side. I strongly believe this book read with a desire to create something better for their partner and family will help couples avoid pitfalls or at least help repair minor wounds.

This book is a rare find! After years of desperately searching for answers to why I was feeling so exhausted, depressed, physically sick, and stressed in motherhood and marital relationship, this book has pulled all of these aspects together and given it a name. I had visited many different doctors who focused on single complaint areas (physical and psychological) but never thought that all of the symptoms could be causal and interrelated. The authors beautifully discuss everything from hormone balance, nutritional deficiencies, external stressors, and relationship/gender differences. They then offer a myriad of recovery/replentishment suggestions encompassing both western and alternative methods, along with a comprehensive appendix of how to find the support you need to overcome Depleted Mother Syndrome. I bought 2 other copies for my sister and a friend.

I have been overwhelmed with wonderful, but sometimes redundant parenting advice. It is refreshing to have such wonderful information about how to keep moms from losing their balance so they can raise the kids they want to raise. The authors have provided the strategies for moms to get their needs met, which is the key to meeting the needs of a child. Offering practical ideas and information on many crucial topics, including stress, moods, energy, and keeping a couple strong, along with addressing health and work issues, Mother Nurture is truly the most valuable book all parents can have.....or give. I highly recommend reading this book as part of your bedtime routine.

This is a beautiful and inspiring book about parenting and building positive relationships with your child and spouse, while also caring for yourself as a parent. It talks realistically about the challenges of being a parent, without diminishing the joy, purpose, and meaning derived from being a parent. It helps you learn strategies of how to take care of yourself better to make sure that you do not get exhausted or depleted. I feel every parent should read this book for the sake of themselves, their child, and their relationship with their spouse.
