What does a contraction feel like? Am I the only one finding these early months of motherhood overwhelming? How can I cope better with the tiredness from these sleepless nights? Becoming a mother is an intense, life-changing experience. No matter how many conversations you have with friends who have had children, nothing can prepare you for the changes ahead. Every woman is different, every birth is different, and every baby is different. Becoming Mum strives to support the reader in a society where we don't always talk honestly about childbirth and the tough challenges of the months that follow. It is a reassuring voice to remind you that you're doing OK, that you're not losing your mind. Whether you are preparing for childbirth or in the midst of the often demanding early months, this book acts as a valuable aid that allows you the opportunity to learn from other mothers' experiences and to benefit from their hindsight.
