Item description for Meditations For New Moms by Sandra Drescher-Lehman...
Overview How does a new mom face the wonder and the wear that a baby brings? What happens to the woman she was? Is it normal to laugh and cry simultaneously? Drescher-Lehman, in her disarmingly forthright way, gives language to the eternally long hours of being with babies, the holy moments that change exhaustion to exhilaration, the private fears, that sudden gratitude for one's own mother. Each meditation is brief, delightful, supportive and encouraging.

Reviews - What do customers think about Meditations For New Moms?
Just what I needed! Jul 13, 2008
I received this book as a gift. I found it to be very comforting and reassuring. The passages are short (perfect) and address all of the emotions, challenges, and joys I experienced as a new mom. I have purchased this for my girlfriends who are about to become mothers.
Great for a New Mom! Mar 2, 2005
I received this as a gift - what a gift! The passages are short, but very relevant to a new mom's emotions of joy, stress, etc. The book also addresses decisions (like going back to work)and changes in your marriage - which I found helpful. I am ordering a few copies to keep on hand for shower gifts.
A SOOTH FOR THE SOUL Jan 30, 1999
After having my baby I began to read this book, which was a GREAT gift. My first thought was, WOW there is someone out there who has taken the time to write about how I am feeling. The author candidly covers various emotions that any postpartum mother would experience. During a time when I was feeling lots of emotions and uncertainty, this book soothed my soul a bit. Thanks Ms. Lehman for taking the time for new moms.
