In the gaping cracks between our mommyhood expectations and the messy reality, magic shines through.
So much legend, tradition, and everyday talk makes pregnancy and motherhood out to be a magical experience. But there's no sparkle, no glitter and glamour when you need to pee 3,302 times per night or are struggling to understand what each baby wail means. A Mother's Manifesto
punctures those myths that becoming a mom is all
radiance and bliss and balances the hopes and dreams of every new mom and mom-to-be by delivering a roller-coaster of emotion and honesty to recast every breakdown as a breakthrough.
Sara knows, all around the globe, a mom is a mom is a mom. Regardless if baby's first solid meal is pureed pear or . . . hummus. She shares her story of living in Dubai with NYC habits, a London-Lebanese mindset, and Palestinian perseverance to empower moms everywhere to find the good in the midst of the hard, discouraging, or overwhelming.
Topics include the pre-preggo phase, pregnancy, and the first year of mommyhood, including how Sara adjusted when an X-ray revealed her baby had hip dysplasia--a congenital misalignment requiring her to wear a brace. A Mother's Manifesto
tackles unexpected and even uncomfortable topics with ease and humor to help fellow moms dig extra deep to find strength--and even magic--in the moments when you resent this baby you're supposed to love, loathe your husband, or lose yourself and want solely to find a glimpse of sanity . . . and you
