Holding Mama | Journal
A resource journal for the third and fourth trimesters.
This book was borne from years of messages and voice notes shared cross-continent between two Mamas navigating pregnancy and early postpartum and speaks to the gap they feel in society: Who is there to hold Mama?
This guide and journal is the room for Mama to breathe, her companion to remind her to reconnect with herself while she holds her baby. This is for the mum who is feeling apprehensive excitement and the mum who is seeking deep transformation in the birth of her new role.
Holding Mama is conversational in style, honest and written to hold and nurture; and to be savoured, in bite-size chunks; just enough before the coffee gets cold.
This is not just another pregnancy book. This is not a textbook on how to care for a baby. This is about the mind, body and soul of a Mum longing to discover the mother that has just been born and to find integration in this new life that feels foreign. It is a book to hold Mamas in their unique experiences and to equip them with tools for the unending journey of motherhood.
