Review quote

If you're a mum or a mum-to-be, this book will equip and encourage you on every level. Nicki Jeffery provides practical help and uplifting advice for mums who want to enjoy a healthy body, mind, and spirit. She writes with authenticity and compassion because she's "been there" as a mom and because she courageously overcame postnatal depression.

Nicki's book displays an exceptional level of understanding and insight. Encouraging Mums With Hope is organized in easy-to-read, accessible chapters that go straight to the heart of each issue. I highly recommend this resource and plan to encourage my new mum friends with it.

Buy a copy for yourself and for someone else who needs it!

Nicki Jeffery's Encouraging Mums With Hope gives practical advice for new mothers in the first month after their baby is born. As a survivor of postnatal depression, Jeffery understands that the postnatal period is when women are most vulnerable to developing mental illness. She uses her firsthand experience and the knowledge of experts to take women through the early postnatal period and into a discussion about postnatal depression.

This is a book that will speak to any new mother who is overwhelmed by the initial experience of motherhood. It provides an insider's guide to coping with depression that is both compassionate and which also gives agency to the mother herself.

This is a must read book for any new mother, feeling overwhelmed by the arrival of a new baby as well as for any woman who is experiencing postnatal depression and needs to know how others have coped in her situation.
