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
