Meditations for New Mothers

Texts and Tunes: Meditations for New Mothers

One of my dearest friends called me recently with panic and sadness in her voice. Ashamed of her mood, I immediately understood what she was going through — crossing the threshold into motherhood. Most everyone you meet talks about falling immediately in love with their newborn and what bliss it was to become a mother for the first time. Rarely do people talk of the late night feedings, memory loss, night sweats and feelings of incompetence that come with the new title "mother."

In Beth Wilson Saavedra's New Meditations for Mothers ($8), new mothers can read though 300 plus anecdotes and quotes from other mommies. Learning to accept what is offered and giving thanks for what is present are often part of the learning process, as are guilt and exhaustion. Perfect for a baby shower gift or a friend in need, Meditations for New Mothers is a quick read for which any new mom can find time.
