The Mindful Mother shows you how to cultivate a daily practice of mindfulness, to be present, positive and truly engage in your life-changing journey through pregnancy, childbirth and early motherhood. When you become a mother, alongside falling in love with your child, you can also struggle to put the pieces of your life back together again with a young baby in toe. The Mindful Mother helps you to keep both feet firmly on the ground through the joys and frustrations of having a baby or small child, as you learn to accept, resolve and grow into your new mothering role. It explores how to approach everyday mothering scenarios and dilemmas from a more mindful and calm perspective, giving you the mindfulness tools to live with greater self-awareness, contentment and insight. Using clear mindfulness exercises and techniques, you can understand how your mind works, so you can enable it to work with you, rather than against you. So being a mother becomes a journey of self-discovery, as you get to know yourself more deeply, in the reflection of getting to know your child. The Mindful Mother empowers you to appreciate and fully live in each moment you share with your baby or child, to truly enjoy being the mother you are now. Speaking to the heart with wisdom, insight and humour, The Mindful Mother gives you a practical life and emotional lifeline, helping you to: • Cope and thrive through common mothering dilemmas • Find balance and equilibrium between work and home • Restore and raise energy, vitality and resilience levels • Engage your mind to work with you, rather than against you • Survive and enjoy daily life with a newborn baby • Awaken the heart to greater love, contentment and happiness.
