Life After Baby

This work is about the joys and challenges of motherhood for women who were focused on a career before focusing on a new baby. Used to feeling competent and capable of fitting multiple tasks into their schedules, many professional women are confident of their abilities to take on motherhood as a part of their already busy lives. Few women are prepared for the emotional impact that having a baby has on every aspect of their lives, including their own identity, their relationships with their spouses and families, and their feelings about work, spirituality and community. While undergoing the transition from independent woman to mother, many women are joining mothers groups for the reassurance of and support of other professional women who have recently had children. Based on interviews with women who pursued careers in their 20s and are having children for the first time in their 30s and 40s, this "mother's group in a book" examines all the ways in which a baby impacts a new mother's emotional life. Inspirational, supportive, and informative, "Life After Baby" aims to comfort and reassure women suddenly faced with the new challenge of motherhood.
