Chapters cover pregnancy, the postpartum period, life with a baby, raising a toddler and various aspects of holding onto your sanity at all of these stages. Throughout there’s a tone that’s both raw and encouraging, one that leaves room for moms to hold on to who they are.

Finished it in one day.  Devoured it.
Ate every page alive, its fruitful juices dribbling down my chin as I laughed and cried and begged Sweet Baby Oprah for more.
“The days are long but the years are short,” I’ll tell myself this over and over again as I watch my kids grow… and wait (semi) patiently for Volume 2*.  *Please say there’ll be a Volume 2…..!

This book is IT! I wish I found it pre preggo. Oh man would it have saved me a lot of heartache and money!!! This is a REAL, no nonsense straight talking guide to making it through pregnancy, birth, baby/toddlerhood and even mom-dating.
– Leah, Amazon

Open, honest and refreshing! I’m glad to know there are mothers out there, not taking themselves too seriously. Keep up the great, judgement free, work!
– Taylor, Amazon

I am SO glad that this book exists! They covered everything that no one wants to talk about but that we should all know, and the best part is that it feels like you are chatting with your BFF. I had so many moments of relief, that I wasn’t the only one feeling this way and the next moment I’d be laughing out loud . Most of all I admire how this book was written in a judgement free tone and reminds us all to meet each other and ourselves with kindness while trying to figure out what works for our individual family.  WELL. DONE. MUST. READ!

This is a great book to give as a gift. It shows any new or soon-to-be mom that you’ll be there to support them in a judgement free way. The advice is blunt, realistic, and compassionate.
