The essential "Bible" for every new mom (excerpt)
A friend and I were looking for a gift for a first-time mother when we came upon The New Mom's Companion.
As a mother and a psychiatrist, I know first and second hand how much a woman's life drastically
changes when she has her first baby. This attractive book insightfully and sensitively touches
on all of the many concerns I had when I first became a mother, from internal, identity issues
to changes in my marriage and other relationships. The Question and Answer format is easy to use
and allows a harried mom to focus right in on the issues coming up for her at that moment.

as mother. I mean wasn't this supposed to be the best thing? Well, when I picked up The New Mom's
Companion and read through the questions that pertained to me I felt not only relieved but
confident that I didn't make the biggest mistake in my life. What I liked most about this book
was the format of question and answer it let's you browse the questions that pertain to you. The great thing is that this book not only validates your feelings and let's you know they
are normal but offers some great coping advice. I can't thank these women enough for taking
the time to put out such a great book for such a great cause our children and their hard
