Hopeful, helpful and hilarious, "I Wish Someone Had Told Me..." is the new essential mom-to-mom handbook for birth, recovery, and New Motherhood in the Modern Age. Written by Sarah Workman Checcone, a veteran mother of four and Founder/Executive Director of Postpartum Society of Florida (a Non-Profit Organization), the reassuring realities of "I Wish Someone Had Told Me...: Preparing for Birth and the Postpartum Year" put peer support in the palms of every new mother's hands. Created to inform, empower, reduce post-birth stress and ease a woman's adjustment to motherhood, this quick read is divided into topical issues such as "Getting an Epidural," "When and How to Push," "The Truth About Breastfeeding," "Your Inner Conversation," " Recharging as a New Mom," "Older Children, Visitors & Feeling Judged," "Finding a 'New Normal'" and more. "I Wish..." strives to be informative but not frightening, and features real quotes and stories from a variety of mothers about what they wish they'd known before birth. Every mom-to-be, new mom, and her family will benefit from the mom-to-mom support of "I Wish Someone Had Told Me..."
