Practices, Prompts, and Support for Women in Baby’s First Year
Bringing a new life into the world cracks your heart wide open. The feelings of bliss and unconditional love are real. And so are the feelings of fear, exhaustion, and overwhelm. Through journaling and reflection, The Healthy Motherhood Journal empowers moms to find their voices so they can truly thrive during their first year with a new baby.
Written by the mother and daughters of the renowned Sears family, known for their work with attachment parenting, this journal focuses on the mother’s needs for healthy connection, with herself as well as her child. And, with new moms already being over-stretched, it’s structured in a way that is sensitive to their limited hands-free time.
Each month focuses on a different theme—including your birth story, embracing your new identity across all the roles you hold, “the guilt and the glory,” and more—while a wide range of prompts helps moms document their insights, reflections, and wisdom. Throughout the journal, the Searses have included tried-and true tips for parenting and self-care, designed to support moms through every phase of their baby’s first year.
When even the simple act of taking a shower feels like momentous freedom, this journal provides a safe place for mothers to explore, process, and document the challenges and joys of this unique time of life while creating long-term visions for the possibilities ahead.
