A colleague shared this book with me and I immediately put it to the test by recommending it to 2 of my expecting mom patients who were complaining of stress. Mom 1 used the book itself as a tool to relax, saying she remembered how much she enjoys reading and that setting aside time every night to put her feet up and read is netting her 5-10 credit points toward reducing her daily stress. Mom 2 realized that she needed a tool to help her relax and chose to use a music listening program designed for her needs. Whether doing something for yourself or having something done for you, the resource guide in “Stress Solutions for Pregnant Moms” does seem to have something for every mom - and everyone else too.. I have started to keep track of my daily hassles and making time to choose something from the resource manual to reduce my own stress as well. I’m planning to keep recommending this valuable book and system regularly to all of my clients who could use some help dealing with daily stress.
