Mother Matters: A Practical Guide to Being a Happy, Healthy Mom

We rated this book:


As the mother to a toddler and soon expecting another baby, I was eager to read Mother Matters. I found it to be easily and simply organized. I also appreciated that it was around 200 pages, and the recommendations were easy to understand and implement, as well as inexpensive. While the importance of postpartum care or “mothercare” as Kurtz calls it in her book, is gaining recognition in the mainstream, a lot of resources seem accessible only to a certain income level. It’s refreshing and empowering to have resources that are available to everyone. I appreciated that each chapter began with a new mother’s story, which helped make the information relatable. I thought the formatting of the book was good–although for the chapters about acupressure points and at-home exercises it would have been very helpful to have diagrams. This book is a great overview, but because it is an overview, it’s hard to cover any subject in depth. It does point the reader to further resources and have encouraging suggestions. The tone is uplifting and comforting.
