‘Ever had that feeling of ‘not being good enough’ as a modern mum its so easy to fall into negative way of thinking, feelings of anxiety, guilt and failure are all too common. Especially if you’re aiming for an unrealistic goal’
The Supermum Myth by Anya Hayes and Dr Rachel Andrew is a sort of ‘self help’ book to help and guide you through motherhood, its not all roses and sparkles and its important to know that its okay to not only feel bad about it, but know that you don’t NEED to be a supermum and that there is of course no such thing.
In the 8 chapters, it covers all things from emotions to expectations during pregnancy and beyond, as we are all a huge pot of hormones swelling around, my anxiety was through the roof with my third pregnancy and I honestly didn’t know how to cope with it.
Throughout the chapters it has little activities to help cope with various problems you experience, for example writing yourself a pre-mum self and create a memory box ritual, I honestly wish I had this when I was pregnant with R, its got so many good tips and advice!
Would you recommend? – YES! if you deal with anxiety this is such a big help, it reminded me sort of those ‘For Dummies’ books you could get for technology.
Price? – You can pick up The Supermum Myth from amazon for a good price of £12.38 for paperback and £7.19 for a kindle, its average price and I would probably grab it if I saw it advertised to me
Anything Else? – Not much else, as I said it reminds me of those ‘For Dummies’ books, I was picking it up and looking through the book to find the advice I needed rather than sat down and read it from cover to cover.
If you would like to read The Supermum Myth yourself you can find it on amazon and any other book stores!
Until next time
