Product description: Becoming Mum is a unique, new self-help book. It is the first book written to support women, all women, through the psychological passage to motherhood, empowering them to become the kind of mother they wish to be. The author, Dr Koa Whittingham, is a parenting researcher at the University of Queensland, a clinical and developmental psychologist and a mother. She brings all of her experience to supporting women in Becoming Mum. A full media kit (including photos, questions and answers and a author biography) is available at: www.becomingmum.com.au/media-kit/
Benefits/Features of the product: Becoming a mother is a joyous adventure for many, but it is also an adventure that includes physical, mental and emotional challenges, as well as enormous personal adjustment.
Becoming Mum is grounded in the latest scientific literature on parenting and psychological health, drawing from mindfulness-based Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Attachment Theory. The book encourages women to enjoy motherhood and builds each woman’s self-confidence as a mother by helping her to discover—and live by—her unique mothering values. Further, Becoming Mum liberates mothers from the dual pressures of self-doubt and criticism from others, empowering every mother to parent her child in the way that she feels is best for her own unique baby. Becoming Mum is written in a flexible style that supports each woman’s individual circumstances. The practical strategies provided in the book can also easily be adapted to suit further challenges such as miscarriage, postnatal depression and preterm birth.
Mums deserve psychological support that is nonjudgmental, empowering and liberating—support that is grounded in each woman’s values and easily adaptable to each woman’s circumstances. Koa is determined to give all women such support during their transformation to motherhood, and this is her purpose in writing Becoming Mum: to support mothers in becoming the mum they want to be.
