Practices, Prompts, and Support for Women in Baby’s First Year
A beautiful journal to support new moms during the first year of baby’s life
“Becoming a mother is one of the most profound transformations a woman will ever go through. The opportunity to open yourself up to spiritual, emotional, physical, and mental growth is right here in front of you. This journal invites you to embrace YOUR version of motherhood.” —The Healthy Motherhood Journal
Bringing a new life into the world cracks your heart wide open. The feelings of bliss and unconditional love are real—and so are the feelings of fear, exhaustion, and overwhelm. With all the focus on your new baby, it’s important to remember that you are transforming and growing, too.
This is why The Healthy Motherhood Journal is not your average baby book—it’s a journal for you, the mom, during your first year with a new baby. Each chapter centers on a theme common to new motherhood: your new identity, co-parenting, your relationship with your body, and more. There are also self-care check-ins, nourishment tips, recipes, meditations, affirmations, and advice drawn from decades of experience.
Written by the mother and daughters of the Sears family, renowned for their work with attachment parenting, this journal will empower you to connect more deeply with yourself as you navigate your first year of motherhood—and all the complexities, joys, challenges, sacrifice, self-discovery, and fulfillment it brings.
