Actress Laura Prepon's searing and insightful guide to navigating motherhood

Actress Laura Prepon was blindsided when she became a mother. Between stress levels that kept skyrocketing and hours every day that kept evaporating, Prepon was exhausted and didn't even recognize herself in the mirror. After realizing the book on motherhood that she craved didn't exist, she set out to write her own. In You and I, As Mothers, Prepon reveals her own personal story and experiences of motherhood. She also explores challenges and offers advice for how women can continue prioritizing self-nourishment, fitness, and beauty as they learn to care for another human. This book is not an instruction manual, and it never tells the reader how to mother. Rather, it is a collection of wisdom, inspiration, scientific research, and practical suggestions designed to support the reader in being a mother.
