While I was pregnant I read and read and read anything I could get my hands on regarding parenting. But on the day my daughter was born, I knew that books couldn’t tell me how to parent her, I had to just do what felt right. What I love about ‘Baby-led Weaning’ by Gill Rapley and Tracey Murkett is that rather than telling you what to do, or setting out strict methods and instructions, it supports you to do what feels right. To trust that you and your baby will find the best way to wean for you.
This book is food for the thought and the soul. It is a celebration of women who demonstrate resilience, determination and love by having a Defiant Birth.
Push the parenting books aside for a minute and forget about the kids because this book is adults only. Sex and Intimacy After Childbirth – rediscovering desire in your relationship by Martien Snellen, is for all couples who have been through a change in their relationship and specifically for new parents. You do not have to have a sexual pathology or even difficulties with your partner to find this book useful. It’s about taking stock and remembering how things used to be. You often hear talk about how relationships change after you have kids, but Snellen challenges you to keep things alive with hard work and lots of communication.
