Fabulous read for all mothers
This was given to me as a gift while pregnant with my first child. It truly spoke to the uncertainty I was feeling about being pregnant, the isolation I felt, and the confusion. It let me know I was not alone. It also let me know that bonding with your baby does not have to happen instantly, that you are not a horrible person who should have never become a mother if it is a process. These essays also let me know that my child would become a joy, gave me hope that I could be as good a mother as I wanted to be.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Essential gift for the new mom!
I read this while I was pregnant and felt so comforted by it's many messages, most importantly that there are as many styles of being a mom as there are women. I give a copy to accompany every baby shower gift and my friends' feedback is the same everytime. My sister said she felt like it was ok to just be herself and not try to be 'the perfect mother'. It's nice that the price is great too!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
