Personal Essays That Will Make You Feel Like You're Not Alone in Motherhood
Struggling to manage your motherhood? Yeah, we've been there. The journey into and through motherhood is not an easy one, but you should know that you aren't the only one having a hard time. So many of us dream of becoming a mother one day. We think about how beautiful and perfect it will be; with our matching outfits and the perfectly designed nursery. People ask us things like "Will you breast or bottle feed?", "What is the colour scheme of the nursery?" and "What brand of stroller are you going to buy?" If we have the answers to these questions, we think we are prepared for motherhood. Spoiler alert, we are not. Motherhood is this wild, unpredictable ride where you think you know what you are doing ... but you really don't. You will win in one moment and lose in another. "Honest as a mother" is a collection of experiences to showcase these moments. The real moments. The highs, the lows, and the challenges we didn't anticipate. This is a place where we're sharing things openly, honestly, and by association, vulnerably. This book was written by mothers, for mothers - with the intention of helping mothers everywhere, in every stage, know they are enough and what they are going through matters. "Honest as a mother" highlights many not-so-sunny parts of the motherhood journey, but more importantly, it will remind you: you are not alone. Join us and get honest as a mother.
