What No One Tells You: A Guide to Your Emotions from Pregnancy to Motherhood

By Alexandra Sacks, Catherine Birndorf
Your guide to the emotions of pregnancy and early motherhood, from two of America's top reproductive psychiatrists.

When you are pregnant, you get plenty of advice about your growing body and developing baby. Yet so much about motherhood happens in your head. What everyone really wants to know: Is this normal?

-Even after months of trying, is it normal to panic after finding out you're pregnant?
-Is it normal not to feel love at first sight for your baby?
-Is it normal to fight with your parents and partner?
-Is it normal to feel like a breastfeeding failure?
-Is it normal to be zonked by "mommy brain?"

In What No One Tells You, two of America's top reproductive psychiatrists reassure you that the answer is yes. With thirty years of combined experience counseling new and expectant mothers, they provide a psychological and hormonal backstory to the complicated emotions that women experience, and show why it's natural for "matrescence"--the birth of a mother--to be as stressful and transformative a period as adolescence.

Here, finally, is the first-ever practical guide to help new mothers feel less guilt and more self-esteem, less isolation and more kinship, less resentment and more intimacy, less exhaustion and more pleasure, and learn other tips to navigate the ups and downs of this exciting, demanding time



    REVIEW QUOTES
"'No one ever told me about this!' is said by almost every woman during the often confusing experiences of pregnancy, birth, and the first year of motherhood. In this reassuring, accessible, and comprehensive guide, Drs. Sacks and Birndorf tackle common fears and questions--in particular, those that people may be embarrassed or afraid to mention. This is an indispensable resource for anyone who wants information that's both authoritative and comforting." --Gretchen Rubin, New York Times bestselling author of The Happiness Project
