As you prepare to become a mother, you face an experience unlike any other in your life. Having a baby will redirect your preferences and pleasures and, most likely, will realign some of your values.As you undergo this unique psychological transformation, you will be guided by new hopes, fears, and priorities. In a most startling way, having a child will influence all of your closest relationships and redefine your role in your family's history. The charting of this remarkable, new realm is the subject of this compelling book.Renowned psychiatrist Daniel N. Stern has joined forces with pediatrician and child psychiatrist Nadia Bruschweiler-Stern and journalist Alison Freeland to paint a wonderfully evocative picture of the psychology of motherhood. At the heart of The Birth of a Mother is an arresting premise: Just as a baby develops physically in utero and after birth, so a mother is born psychologically in the many months that precede and follow the birth of her baby.The recognition of this inner transformation emerges from hundreds of interviews with new mothers and decades of clinical experience. Filled with revealing case studies and personal comments from women who have shared this experience, this book will serve as an invaluable sourcebook for new mothers, validating the often confusing emotions that accompany the development of this new identity. In addition to providing insight into the unique state of motherhood, the authors touch on related topics such as going back to work, fatherhood, adoption, and premature birth.During pregnancy, mothers-to-be talk about morning sickness and their changing bodies, and new mothers talk about their exhaustion, the benefits of nursing or bottle-feeding, and the dilemma of whether or when they should return to work. And yet, they can be strangely mute about the dramatic and often overwhelming changes going on in their inner lives. Finally, with The Birth of a Mother, these powerful feelings are eloquently put into words.

The Birth of Hope is a compilation of the author’s raw and personal journal entries beginning five days into the loss of her two-and-a-half year old daughter Penny and spanning the following three years. Genevieve felt compelled to write through her feelings of heartbreak and to share her discoveries of blessings, miracles, joy and peace along the way. It is her hope that others experiencing loss and tragedy feel inspired for their own healing and comforted knowing they are not alone on the complicated journey of grief. What begins as a devastating tragedy, reveals itself to be a pathway to spiritual enlightenment for Genevieve. Penny’s departure not only deeply impacted her family, but had a ripple effect on a much wider community than the family could ever have imagined.

So much of modern motherhood is targeted at looking good even when you feel crap and making your baby look good even though he or she won’t settle or feed or stop crying, all in the shortest time frame possible. The Miranda Kerr and Heidi Klums of the world make it look easy; have a baby and get back on the runway 2 minutes later with a flat stomach, silky hair and glowing skin. What about the mothers who get acne from pregnancy, or whose hair turns grey, or can’t loose their baby belly in 10 seconds flat? This book is for them. Heather Irvine, Clinical Psychologist and head of the R.E.A.D Clinic, appropriately balances clinical expertise with common sense “mother appeal” for mothers struggling in their baby’s first year. The Birth of the Modern Mum looks at the serious issues such as Postnatal Depression (PND), relationship changes and physical changes that mothers face in their first year with a new baby while still providing light-hearted quick fixes that any mother can implement in short period of time. Heather taps into the realistic image of motherhood leaving behind the doldrums of medical professionally written books. The Birth of the Modern Mum is a book that any mother can be proud of. It can be placed on the coffee table right next to the Women’s Day or Famous magazines without shame should guests drop by. Because whilst the book tackles the factors that underlie PND and related cognitive and affective dysfunction no mother wants to have a heavy PND-title book sitting around in her lounge room. And let’s face it, once a book is put away on the bookshelf, in the life of a busy mum it’s unlikely to come out again.

Adoptive, foster and stepmothers, like biological mothers, find their lives completely changed by motherhood although they are not always granted the rights and privileges accorded to those who give birth. Barbara Waterman explores the common experiences that are shared by all those who enter the motherhood portal. She highlights the importance of wider family, community and professional support for non-biological parents and primary care-givers of both genders, and their children. A stepmother herself and a practicing psychologist, Waterman's writing is illustrated throughout with vignettes of children and parents from a range of backgrounds. She shows the important ways in which a non-biological attachment is both more similar to and more different from a biological attachment than is currently understood. In doing this, Waterman broadens the notion of the `traditional' family, and offers a positive alternative to the myth of the perfect mother. All kinds of step-, adoptive and foster families and those coming into contact with them will find this thoroughly researched and personal book an indispensable guide.
