Bringing up children is important work. Yet there is little support for raising families. For example, parents with young children are pressured into jobs and childcare -- yet many want the choice of being a full time mother or father. Joan Salter helps you choose by portraying mothering and creating a home as special work.
Women share their experiences of what mothering means for them. This "career of the heart" can be seen as a soulful and spiritual activity, not merely a practical job. This brings a profound intimacy with your child through pregnancy, birth and the early years.
There are sections on expecting, birthing, mothering, breast-feeding, the rhythms of the day, the evolution of consciousness, work outside the family, childcare, the growth of love, and grandmothers.
