Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Mothers today juggle more tasks, work longer hours, and sleep less than their own mothers did. Yet the self-healing revolution has overlooked the most significant issue in the lives of some twenty million women: how to cope with the relentless, sometimes overwhelming, stresses of raising young children in the twenty-first century. Psychologist Rick Hanson, Nutritionist Jan Hanson, and Obstetrician Ricki Pollycove offer hundreds of practical ways a mother can lift her mood, stay energetic and healthy, build teamwork and intimacy with her partner-and be at her best for her family, during the stressful and crucial first three to five years of her child's life. Plus they explain how the strains of motherhood can literally deplete a woman's body, draining it of important nutrients such as minerals and amino acids-sometimes so severely that she experiences the Depleted Mother Syndrome (DMS) that affects at least one mother in ten. Covering everything from stress relief in the middle of a crazy day to getting more sleep, eating better, balancing home and work, sharing the load fairly, and keeping a strong love alive with her partner, Mother Nurture is the first book to present a comprehensive program that helps a mom take care of herself while she takes care of her family.

Synopsis:

The first book to teach stressed-out new mothers how to heal themselves. Women raising young children in the twenty-first century face relentless, often overwhelming stress.

Mother Nurture is the first book to address these issues with a comprehensive program of physical, psychological, and interpersonal care methods for a mother during the first three to four years of her child's life.
