Now, six years after becoming a mother, I finally feel less alone in my baby years misery thanks to Andrea Buchanan's "Mother Shock."
If you're having a baby, or even if you've passed the baby years, read this book. It'll make you feel much better about the range of emotions -- the "mother shock" -- of the first year of motherhood.
I am so glad I read it after my daughter's first three months -- defintely the hardest time for me. I will be giving this book to all of my new mom friends!!
I highly recommend!
