Praise for the Book

“In Mindful Motherhood, you'll experience the wisdom of a mother, clinician, and researcher who outlines the accessible, practical steps to take to turn challenge into triumph during pregnancy and the parenting of young children. Read this book, give it as a baby shower present, carry it with you into the pediatrician's office—but most of all, take it in and savor its secrets for a richer life for yourself and your child.”

Daniel J. Siegel, MD author of Parenting from the Inside Out and The Mindful Brain

“Mindful Motherhood contains what so many other parenting books omit: the consoling information that each mother has the ability to know, deep within, how to care for her child. Mindful Motherhood is a gem.”

Christiane Northrup, MD, author of Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom

“Wise, soothing, and helpful—this is really good stuff for new mothers.”

Jack Kornfield, author of The Wise Heart
