Publisher's Summary

Your guide to the emotions of pregnancy and early motherhood, from top reproductive psychiatrists Dr Sacs and Dr Bindorf.  

With a combined 30 years of counselling new and expectant mothers, Dr Sacks and Dr Birndorf have seen firsthand how the pressure to be perfect, and perfectly happy, leaves women feeling confused and even ashamed of the emotions that can bubble up during pregnancy. 

Now, in What No One Tells You, the two psychiatrists show why it's natural for 'matrescence' - the birth of a mother - to be as stressful and transformative a period as adolescence.  

From the swirl of trepidation and joy of seeing that plus sign to the complexities of bonding with a tiny and mighty newborn human, Drs. Sacks and Birndorf provide a road map for mothers-to-be, detailing the emotions (both positive and negative) that can develop, explaining the psychological backstory as to why and offering women a practical guide for managing the ups and downs of this exciting, exhausting time.  

After years of hearing their patients say, 'But how come no one told me?' Drs. Birndorf and Sacks are ready to share their secrets with the world.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio on our desktop site.

Too much information in high level

It was a nice book to read before delivery however it was too much information in one book. I guess the book was written mostly for USA mothers. Lot of times I couldn't relate to my location. Also it was politically correct, everyone could take from it whatever they like.
