New Zealand Mothers Speak From the Heart

Book - 2003
Rate this:
Over 100 New Zealand mothers speak from the heart about their real-life experiences of motherhood. With honesty and good humour, they describe experiences both rare and commonplace, from everyday joys and laughter to extraordinary struggles and tragedy. There are stories about childbirth, about weaning and infancy, about parenting young children and raising difficult teenagers. Among the subjects covered are preparing for a homebirth, caring for a disabled child, solo parenting, family holidays, rural isolation, motherhood versus career and coping with child death. Many of the stories offer encouragement and reassurance, others practical advice and guidance.
