Not that there is much time to read...before during or after one becomes a MOTHER. But I think this book helps with some information re what to expect, & other women's experiences.
#2 Eagan has very good observations & done some fine research on "how a mother learns to become a mother".The growth & DEVELOPMENT of the mother that takes place after childbirth is fully explored here. In more than a
few ways this is a good guide.
