Annotation The author (a midwife, herbalist, and mother of four), offers mothers advice on how to adapt to parenthood. Reflecting on how becoming a parent changes almost everything in a woman's life, from her body to work arrangements to personal relationships, the author stresses that mothers must take the time to care for themselves--and that by doing so they will be better able to care for their children. Topics covered include postnatal yoga exercises, nutrition for mothers, maternity and paternity leave, getting around with a baby, and dealing with postpartum depression. Also discussed are such infant-centric topics as signs of illness in a newborn, teething, and infant massage.
First Line Matrescence is a term coined by anthropologist Dana Raphael in her book THE TENDER GIFT: BREASTFEADING to describe the process of becoming a mother, compared to adolescence, the process of becoming an adult. Matrescence begins in earnest when we become pregnant, and continues until the day arrives when we realize we finally fell like a mom, steady on our feet after the roller coaster of emotions and demands of those first months after birth.
