Becoming a Mother PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Becoming a Mother free pdf Becoming a Mother releases women from the pressure to be perfect mothers. Rather than a book that teaches how to change a nappy or schedule a feed, it explores the often unspoken challenges of caring for a baby in the first year and the complex emotions women experience as they are transformed into mothers. In the moment of birth it is not only a baby that is born, but a mother too. Throughout the first difficult year of their babies' lives, many women secretly doubt that they will emerge as the loving, confident mothers they long to be. In her book, Becoming a Mother, Leisa Stathis explores this emotional journey. Through shared stories, women learn that they are not alone and that there is light at the end of the tunnel. As a social worker and qualified family therapist, Leisa has a professional as well as a mother's perspective. She refers to the early days of being a new mum as the 'fourth trimester' and includes chapters on interesting topics frequently not discussed, such as 'the Unmothered Mother.' Perhaps the most powerful message Leisa gives women is a reminder that, as mothers, in amongst all that we don't know and feel we are doing wrong, there are many, many things we are doing wonderfully right.
