Mothering the New Mother
Women’s Feelings & Needs After Childbirth: A Support and Resource Guide
by Sally Placksin

You don’t have to be alone. Share the experiences, successes, and struggles of many other women before and after childbirth in this all-in-one mothercare guide about family, work, the baby (or second or third baby), and you. Includes checklists, plan-ahead suggestions, questionnaires, and much more.

Drawn from three years of research, the author’s own experience, and the candid recollections of many mothers—married and single, birth and adoptive, older and younger— the nine chapters in this comprehensive guide cover all aspects of the postpartum experience, including:

what the new mom should expect when she goes home
what postpartum is and how long it lasts
where to find breastfeeding help
how to ask for help
the new mom’s home-care options
realistic going-back-to-work options
how to relieve the isolation of at-home mothering
what to say (and not to say) to family members
and much more
