Overview

You are a mother now, and your life is very different. Self-Esteem. Loss of Memory. Growth. Duty. Bliss. Fear. Delusions of Adequacy. Mystery. Awe. The changes that transform a new mother are sudden and insistent. But they are also universal: they happen to everyone.

In a lifeline thrown from one mother to the next, Beth Wilson Saavedra has written a book of meditations that reassuringly address the emotions, doubts, conflicts, anxieties, and wonders of living with a newborn. It is a woman's group, the wisdom of the ages, and a close friend all rolled into one. Keep it on your night table.

In 1990 Beth Wilson Saavedra gave birth to a son, and afterward this book. She lives with her family in California.

In the tradition of Meditations for Women Who Do Too Much, the runaway bestseller by Anne Wilson Schaef, comes a collection of daily meditations to refresh, reassure, and raise a smile on the face of women who have just become mothers. Saavedra writes to the full range of emotions, conflicts, anxieties, wonders, and issues that arise in early motherhood.

Miracle ER: of Life

From the moment our baby is born, we stare, not quite believing the miracle that has issued forth from our bodies. Our minds still can't quite fathom the mystery of the birth experience.

When asleep, we peek in her room and again, we stare, studying her face for the answer to our question: "Is she real?" Enchanted, we continue to gaze at her, amazed that she has come into our lives.

Our curiosity never completely goes away. Over the years, there are certain moments when we find ourselves simply gazing at our child and once more ask: "Did this person really come from inside of me?"

The miraculous qualities of birth never leave me. Maybe that's what makes it so special.
