A Motherly Collection of Reflections + Practices By Jill Koziol and Liz Tenety

From the co founders and contributors of the Motherly online community present a collection of essays and practices to celebrate motherhood in all its complexity. “Each essay takes you on a beautiful emotional rollercoaster which ends at a destination that’s nothing short of reassuring. It’s raw, relatable, and oh so real—a must-read for mothers and fathers.” —Reema Sampat, actress Orange Is the New Black

With THIS IS MOTHERHOOD: A Motherly Collection of Reflections + Practices (published by Sounds True Paperback), you’ll find reflections on each phase of “the wild ride of motherhood,” including the soaring highs of meeting your new baby, the ground-shaking lows that make you doubt everything you’ve ever known, and all the beauty and pain in between.

Each chapter closes with practices from Motherly’s team of wellness experts to help you define, clarify, process, and celebrate your journey. “Being Motherly today is not about focusing on what divides us or brings us down,” writes Liz Tenety, “it’s about celebrating and empowering each woman’s individual, triumphant journey.”

Each essay in This Is Motherhood is a letter to you, from one mama to another, to remind you that your feelings are normal. That you’re doing an amazing job. That you’re stronger than you even realize.
