Reviews - What do customers think about Mothering the New Mother: Women's Feelings & Needs After Childbirth: A Support and Resource Guide?

intensive read  Oct 13, 2008
This book is an intensive read for the post partum time. I have found it helpful, though the resources are not as helpful as I hoped;not a lot for the west coast. It's very well written.
Excellent overview of postpartum needs  May 6, 2007
As a new mom and as a therapist specializing in postpartum issues, I highly recommend this book. It's an excellent resource for families expecting a baby, covering important topics such as postpartum depression and anxiety, building a support network, and how to plan for the postpartum period in order to make a smooth transition into parenthood.
An excellent resource and comfort  Apr 22, 2003
I found this book to be an excellent comfort, as well as a great practical resource. The book sensitively and honestly addresses the wide range of emotions I experienced after my child's birth--many of these emotions I didn't expect, and some scared me. I recommend this book to any expectant parent--I found it reassuring to turn to for support.
Outstanding info and support for new mothers!  Oct 3, 2000
This book really helped me after the birth of my first child. So much info and support for all the things that nobody prepares you for. All the birth prep focuses on the actual birth, nothing for the feelings and challenges afterwards as a new Mom. This book does that. Especially helpful to me was the section on PPD.

Read it, before you need it!
