Poetic Lessons For First Year Motherhood

If you’re a new mom, this book will help you. If you’re an experienced mom, this book will take you back! Different than any “baby advice” book, The Poetry of Motherhood gives both insight and inspiration to moms in that incredibly emotional and wonderful first year of their baby’s life. Through baby-inspired haiku poetry and reflections, many of the comical, practical and poignant lessons of first-year motherhood and babyhood are represented. Most importantly, new moms will be assured that the miracle they are living, exhausting and difficult at times, is felt by all moms universally. “Not only are we not alone, we are, together with the ferocious love that our babies elicit, a very powerful force. A force to be reckoned with if we harness and direct it.” “There are so many beautiful thoughts in this book. I would love to share it with my daughter-in-law who just gave birth, but also with my mother who at 91, still has an amazing mother love-energy for our family and for the world.” —Pam Montanaro, Int'l Peace Organizer, mother of 6, grandmother of 7
