From the Author
The Lovely Haze of Baby Days is a playful tribute to the chaos of motherhood and life with babies.
Have you ever felt exhausted and overwhelmed, navigating your life with a baby?
This book is the result of me having those feelings. When I realized how many of my mama friends were quietly struggling too, I was frustrated. Why weren't there more ways we could show the endless love and support we have for each other? Why do we hide our fears and doubts, when we are struggling with the same things everyday?
This honest book, brimming with touching and playful baby realities , was created for expectant moms and those who are already figuring life out with their babies. Even seasoned moms will appreciate the importance of this message and relate.
As the conditions surrounding the current pandemic continue, isolation is making maternal struggles with loneliness, anxiety, and depression an even bigger battle. My hope is this book will remind us that we are not alone in motherhood.
