9780091917425: A Perfect Start: Or coping with the first months of parenthood

For many parents the first few months after a baby's birth can be a time of shock and adjustment as well as personal joy. Fatigue, confusion and feelings of incompetence are as common as the delight and pride which are part of having a baby.

In this friendly, accessible guide, Christine and Peter Hill take over from where other pregnancy books stop and before baby books begin. They provide a vast amount of practical and down-to-earth guidance on:

- What to expect in hospital and afterwards at home

- How to cope with persistent crying

- Dealing with feelings of depression and isolation

- Looking after yourself as well as your baby

- How to maintain fulfilling relationships with parents and friends

- When and when not to return to work.

Drawing on the experiences of over 5,000 mothers - and fathers - with new babies, and now fully updated, this authoritative guide is both reassuring and fun to read.

Review:

"Bookshops are flooded with baby care bibles that can be sterile in style. The Hills add wit to the mix, in this down-to-earth book on the first months of parenthood...an accessible, fun guide" ( Junior Pregnancy and Baby)

"the ultimate baby guru; a no-nonsense, tell-it-like-it-is straight shooter who delivers both practical and medical advice with the wit of Victoria Wood" ( YOU magazine)

"Any expectant mothers feeling anxious and unprepared should consider enrolling for classes with Christine Hill... Christine is an obstetric physiotherapist with a concern for the apprehensions, fears and idiotic queries of first-time mothers. Every week more than 100 women pass through her classroom and she answers the same questions with reassurance, common sense and humour... it is packed with sane advice." ( The Times)

"the perfect guide to your new life as a mum" ( Pregnancy and Birth)

Book Description:

A completely revised and updated edition of You and Your New Baby - the perfect guide to helping new parents survive the early months of caring for a newborn baby, by ante-natal guru Christine Hill
