Perfect Mum has been officially recommended by the Centre of Perinatal Excellence – COPE
“There are so many great things about motherhood but there are downsides, too. Am I right? Comparison. Inferiority. Isolation. Anxiety… just to name a few. We’re constantly flaunting our highlight reels on social media for all to see but are so reluctant to reveal the hard things and share all parts of us. We need to stop this, Mamas. We need to break down our walls. We need to find the support we need to be happy, healthy, thriving mamas. That’s why I’m so glad I found Lizzie O’Halloran’s iBook, Perfect Mum“.
“I particularly like your points on eating well, exercise, relaxation/meditation and herbal medicine to help, as it’s all the stuff I educate and promote in my clients as a naturopath”
Lizzie O’Halloran – the Author of the Perfect Mum Parenting Book provides advice for new mums
Looking for a Positive Parenting Guide for a First Time New Mum?
If you’re like most new mums, your main focus during pregnancy was on the birth of your child, with little preparation for motherhood.
There are countless resources on how to raise happy and healthy children. There is also a heightened awareness of the pressures that befall many modern day mothers. Yet, so many mothers report feeling lonely, exhausted, depressed, anxious, guilty, overwhelmed and unconfident in their choices as a woman, mother, parent, caregiver, and/ or professional. The aim of Perfect Mum is to break down the myth of the ‘perfect mother’, provide advice for ne mums with tools, techniques and ongoing support to cope with the demands of motherhood and support mothers to feel good about roles both within the home and within their chosen careers. Lizzie’s desire in writing this parenting book is for every mother to learn to trust her instincts, feel healthier, have more energy, be kinder to herself, feel more confident and feel empowered to stand up for her beliefs and values as a parent and as a woman.
We believe Perfect Mum is the best parenting book, particularly for the first time mum.
It’s specifically designed to support mothers through the rollercoaster of motherhood. This guide provides practical and theoretical advice for new mums as well as parenting advice from a range of experienced mothers.
“Mothers are so fixated about the birth … and then they go home and it’s like ‘ Now what do I do?” – Cath Curttin, Author, Midwife and Maternal Child Health Nurse (Herald Sun, 23 May 2016
As a new mum you’re probably rushing around doing a myriad of things for everyone else, whilst placing your own needs last. As a new mum, you might just have time for a shower on your own, eat on the run, gain a few precious minutes for a hair cut, or even sit and relax with a ‘cuppa’ for 5 minutes before your baby needs you again.
What’s The Cost to Your Health and Happiness of Putting Your Needs Last?
One in 7 new Mums in Australia experience postnatal depression and approximately 1 in 10 experience antenatal anxiety, or depression. Common feelings associated with postnatal depression in motherhood are feeling overwhelmed, feelings anxious and/or feeling stressed. So if you are experiencing any of these types of symptoms, you are not alone.
Are you searching for some support you can access any time from home?
Perfect mum provides a safe (private) support tool, which is filled with practical resources you can implement to raise your energy levels, increase your confidence, improve your health and feel more in control of your life and the lives of your loved ones. With Perfect Mum you will have access to a therapeutic manual loaded with tools to support you through the emotional roller coaster of Motherhood. In addition, the book includes comments from a range of mothers, detailing their own experiences of motherhood to provide you with a deeper appreciation and understanding that you are NOT ALONE in your journey.
But what if you’re like most new mums, not suffering from depression, but just struggling to cope with the every day pressures of motherhood, such as:
how to get some sleep for you and your child?
how to find time to be (and feel like being) intimate with your partner?
how to attract a partner if you’re a single mother?
how to juggle all the demands of child rearing and still find time to care for your own needs?
how to stop worrying about what other mothers might be thinking of you?
how to ensure your child is being fed healthy foods?
how to help your child develop a healthy self esteem?
