A clinical psychologist's exploration of the modern dilemmas women face in the wake of new motherhood. - provided by publisher
Millwood, a clinical psychologist, discovered losses in the wake of new motherhood: aspects of identity, baseline level of happiness, and a general sense of well-being. Even with a supportive husband she resented the fact that the disruption to his life seemed to pale in comparison to hers. Now she examines how-- for most new mothers-- these issues add another layer of tension, conflict, and confusion to an already challenging time. -- adapted from jacket
