Frustrated that most parenting books didn’t speak to modern-day mindful parents—especially dads—the author and her husband worked on a parenting guide for mamas and papas. This interactive guide to mindful living includes tips, tricks, and tasty recipes. It’s real, raw, accessible, research-based, and it’s ready to be implemented now. Flip to any page and you’ll find anything from essential oil blends for breathing exercises, mindful meal prep tips, family meditation scripts, smoothie bowl recipes, and more. The author demonstrates that parents can mindfully respond more and mindlessly react less to each other and to their children. Creating moments of stillness to reflect on parenting can be a challenge, but it can also be hugely rewarding. Mindful parenting is not about somehow becoming the perfect parent; it’s about being present in your parenting, with all its imperfections. Whether you’re a mama or a papa, you’ll appreciate the useful methods and achievable steps that will help you bring mindfulness into your life and the lives of your children with this parenting playbook.

Mindful Motherhood

From hormones to stretch marks, labor pains to diaper changes, motherhood is an adventure like none other. The rapid changes in your body, your lifestyle, and your very identity call for a certain mental and emotional agility. Mindfulness can help you meet the challenge and approach every experience with your new baby with open eyes and an open heart. Based on research conducted at California Pacific Medical Center, and with a foreword by beloved meditation teacher Sylvia Boorstein, Mindful Motherhood: Practical Tools for Staying Sane During Pregnancy and Your Child's First Year (New Harbinger/Noetic Books, May 2009, $16.95) by psychologist and mom Cassandra Vieten, has been acclaimed by women's health experts, mindfulness teachers, and psychologists alike. Mindful Motherhood provides pregnant women and new moms with a brief, low-cost, easy to implement set of tools to deal with stress, difficult moments, depressed or anxious moods, and negative thought patterns during pregnancy and early motherhood. Based on the principles of mindfulness, this book also provides information, exercises, and ideas to enhance the positive emotions that are part of the experience of motherhood and improve the quality of mother-infant interactions, bringing more attention and awareness to the deep joy and satisfaction that motherhood can bring. Mindful Motherhood provides pregnant women and early moms with: 1) accessible information based on science and sound clinical theory, 2) practical tools for practicing mindfulness in everyday life, 3) stories and examples to inspire interest and clarify points, and 4) experiential exercises that will help readers integrate the information and experiences they have. Mindful Motherhood also offers current insights into the positive psychology of motherhood and mother-infant attachment, translating science and theory into jargon-free language and immediately applicable tools. This book is aimed specifically toward pregnant women and mothers with infants, who would like to deal more effectively with stress and mood during pregnancy and postpartum, who are interested in being the best parent they can be, and who want to cultivate a deeper connection to themselves and their children. The goal is to help women become the kind of present, authentic, connected, emotionally competent, psychologically-balanced, and loving mothers they want to be not to mention enjoying the extraordinary experience of motherhood to its fullest extent. Why it is Important A large body of evidence in both animal and human studies indicates that stress and mood disturbance experienced during pregnancy increases the risk for preterm birth, low birth weight, and other pregnancy-related complications, and may adversely affect the developing fetus. Postnatal mood disturbance can interfere with attachment, healthy parenting behaviors, and child development. While a wealth of evidence supports all these facts, surprisingly little information is available to women and clinicians for reducing stress and improving mood in pregnancy and postpartum. Mindful Motherhood is the only book oriented toward teaching research-based mindfulness principles to reduce stress and improve mood in pregnant women and new moms. It is an easy but informative read that gives new moms the psychology, science and health facts behind how mindfulness can enhance mother-infant attachment, and be used in childbirth.

In The Little Book of Mumfulness, a non-expert mum takes you through the non-perfect guide to getting through motherhood without losing your mind from exhaustion. If you have: 1) Not eaten in well over twelve hours; 2) Run out of nappies; 3) Got a house that is beginning to look like it's been burgled... ...then this book is for you. Advice includes: - How to take time throughout the day to restore your equilibrium (like having a long, loud scream in a closet) - How to shortcut child-related tasks (by avoiding them altogether) - How to let off steam through mumful exercises It also includes the news that IT'S NOT JUST YOU who is struggling with the demands of being the 'perfect' mother, and if you need a long swig of prosecco (or any wine from the fridge, or the cupboard for that matter) at the end of a day of parenting, then that is more than a-ok. Most importantly, this book will help you to remember that being a good mum is about finding your own mumfulness amongst the imperfect chaos.

In her book, Dr. Torres shares attitudes, mindsets, and real-life tools to help moms have more fun while taking advantage of the rich opportunities for growth that motherhood brings. She uses examples from her own life and her two decades of work as a clinical psychologist to explore common ground in motherhood. • Learn about the value of learning to live more in the present with kindness for yourself • Understand how the mind works and how to avoid unnecessary "optional suffering" • Explore mindsets and attitudes that promote ease and amplify the best of life • Empower yourself with techniques, tools, and Mindful Mama Mantras that support you being your best you on your motherhood journey Mindfulness skills help provide a home base for connecting with and appreciating yourself, trusting yourself, savoring life with all your senses, and being conscious and thoughtful about your choices

Successful hubbie? Tick. Facebook-worthy baby? Tick. Bikini-body six weeks after giving birth? Um ... not so much. Fashion PR exec Ally Bloom got her happy ending. Okay, her marriage might be showing the odd crack, her battleaxe mother-in-law might have come to stay, and she might not be the yummy mummy she'd imagined, but it's nothing a decent night's sleep and a firm commitment to a no-carb diet won't fix. But when Ally returns to work and finds she'll be reporting to a 22-year-old airhead, she decides to turn her back on life as a professional fashionista and embrace her inner earth mama instead. So it's out with the Louboutins and champagne and in with the sensible flats and coffee mornings with the Mummy Mafia. From attending her first grown-up dinner party only to discover that placenta is top of the menu to controlling her monster crush on local playgroup hottie Cameron, Ally must find her feet in the brave new world of the stay-at-home mum. ‘Sharp and funny, Madden’s novel captures the realities of new-mummyhood. The perfect nap-time read, and by nap I mean wine.’ —Meg Mason, author of Say It Again in a Nice Voice ‘[A] hilarious satire about modern motherhood’ —Practical Parenting ‘Nothing wrong with extreme exaggeration in pursuit of a good laugh. I'd love to see Madden doing stand-up.’ —Country Style ‘Slick, smart and skilful’ —Debbish ‘Confessions of a Once Fashionable Mum is a highly enjoyable read that reads like The Devil Wears Prada, but with dirty nappies and Happy Mummies groupies and the odd piece of fashion advice. 4⁄5 stars.’ —Never Ending Bookshelf ‘Every now and then I read a book and I think, “Damn, I wish I wrote that!” That’s totally how I feel about Confessions of a Once Fashionable Mum. I’m only half way through, but her novel is already so witty, entertaining and ... relatable ... it’s so nice to read a funny book that chronicles the joys of motherhood in such a humorous and honest way.’ —Summer Land ‘Confessions of a Once Fashionable Mum will make you giggle as you fly through the pages. I enjoyed it so much, I binge read it and knocked it over in a day.’ —Woogsworld ‘If you are looking for a book to escape into under some bubbles, either in the bath or the champagne variety, this is a good one as it is easy to read, actually funny and allows you to voyeuristically follow the misadventures of someone far more disorganised and vague than yourself.’ —Wellington Times Georgia Madden is an interiors journalist and a frequent contributor to a range of home and lifestyle magazines in Australia and the UK. She lives in Sydney.
