A sensitive, intelligent and wise guide not only to caring for your children but also to understanding yourself
'Ann Pleshette Murphy is one of my heroes' T. Berry Brazelton, M.D., bestselling author of What Every Baby Knows
This is the book every mum needs, and it hasn't been available until now. The Seven Stages of Motherhood looks at the experience of parenting not only in the first year or two of a baby's life, but right on through childhood and adolescence and even into adulthood. Ann Pleshette Murphy argues that women evolve as mothers throughout the lives of their children, and her book is intended as a guide through this remarkable experience. Practical, sensible and above all readable, it will be invaluable to first-time parents and absolutely relevant to mothers of growing families.
