"Informative, empowering, and inspiring. I can't think of a single mother who wouldn't benefit from reading this. It's the book equivalent of a long chat with your most honest and experienced mom friend - something we all need more of!" --Jill Smokler, New York Times bestselling author and founder of Scary Mommy

"Writing in the tone of a friendly, nonjudgmental peer...Rope mixes in solid advice from experts and her personal experiences...[and] offers women commonsense guidance and vigorous reassurances on coping with the tumultuous changes of pregnancy and parenthood." --Publishers Weekly

"Divided into three parts--pregnancy, surviving the first year, and motherhood beyond--this book recognizes that, as a mother, maintaining mental health should be a top priority. The topics covered are vast (from feeling anxiety in early pregnancy, to being a mom to a fussy baby, to handling doubtful thoughts once the baby has been born), and the book can be read from start to finish or consulted by section for mothers' most pressing need." --Booklist
