--Get the book that moms are getting for each other.--
Do you know a new mom? Are you sure you know her? Look closer. Is she shining with the light of new life? Or slipping into the dark. Would you know the difference? Would she tell the truth?
It seems simple. Have a baby. Love and raise it. Become the mom you’ve dreamed of becoming.
But postpartum complexities lurk. Awesome responsibility. Staggering demands. Irreversible changes. A mommy culture of perfection and facade.
With this haunting and funny collection, moms of all ages take a painfully resonant journey through the anticipation, joy, isolation, self-doubt, exhaustion, humor, and ultimate redemption of new motherhood.
