A Perfect Start : Or Coping with the First Months of Parenthood Paperback
For many parents the first few months after a baby's birth can be a time of shock and adjustment as well as personal joy.
Fatigue, confusion and feelings of incompetence are as common as the delight and pride which are part of having a baby. In this friendly, accessible guide, Christine and Peter Hill take over from where other pregnancy books stop and before baby books begin.
They provide a vast amount of practical and down-to-earth guidance on: - What to expect in hospital and afterwards at home- How to cope with persistent crying- Dealing with feelings of depression and isolation- Looking after yourself as well as your baby- How to maintain fulfilling relationships with parents and friends- When and when not to return to work.
Drawing on the experiences of over 5,000 mothers - and fathers - with new babies, and now fully updated, this authoritative guide is both reassuring and fun to read.
