MOTHERHOOD - THE UNSPOKEN
In most cases, the expectations of future and new parents
about parenthood are rather unrealistic.
From each direction, we are fed by the illusion that
a mother has to experience feelings of pure happiness
from the first moment.
The reality is somewhat different, however...
My book 'Motherhood - The Unspoken' offers an authentic
insight into the life of a new mum. It shows real stories of 10 different
first-time mums (including myself) all the way from pregnancy
throughout the first year of having a baby and, in the process, reveals
the unspoken truths about motherhood no one thinks to tell you about.
The main purpose of this book is to help set clear expectations,
to break the stigma of postnatal mental health, and to save new parents
from suffering postnatal depression.
A must-read for every new mum!
What did others say about the book?
Mum of 2, Body Positivity Coach & Bestselling Author
'A wonderfully authentic perspective of some of the more challenging aspects of the beginnings of motherhood. I highly recommend this book to any new mums experiencing feelings of doubt that they can do it!'
Mum of 5 & Midwife
“Motherhood the unspoken gives an excellent insight into some of the real experiences of mothers postpartum. As well as offering words of advice and tips to new mums, the stories of these women show future and new mothers that if they experience certain negative feelings after the birth of their babies they are not alone and there is a light at the end of the tunnel. A truly insightful book and a must-read for all future and new mums!”
Mum of 2 & Business Mentor
'A beautiful and strangely comforting book! If only this book was given to me when I was pregnant! The brave women in this book, are honest and insightful! This book gives mothers an inside view, showing that it’s not all a bed of roses although it is ok, you are not alone, you don’t have to be perfect and when you reach out for support it gets easier and the love will grow!'MOTHERHOOD
