Actress, director, and New York Times bestselling author Laura Prepon’s raw and honest guide to navigating motherhood.
When Laura Prepon first became a mother, she felt blindsided.
Between skyrocketing stress levels, sleepless nights, and the complete rearrangement of her priorities, Prepon barely recognized her new maternal self. She sought out resources to help navigate this huge life transition, but found only books about childcare and almost nothing on the shelves about momcare. So she decided to write the book she was looking for.
You and I, as Mothers: A Raw and Honest Guide to Motherhood is a practical handbook for mothers of any age, at any stage of motherhood. At once deeply personal and universal, the book includes topics such as self-care, stress reduction techniques, protecting one’s partnership, asking for help, and getting a global perspective on maternity, as well as a selection of easy and delicious recipes, among many other things.
Laura shares humbling moments and anecdotes from her own journey as a mother, interweaving insights from her Mom Squad: an eclectic group of mothers, including a world-renowned survival expert, a top neuroscientist, creator of Orange Is the New Black Jenji Kohan, actress Mila Kunis, author and activist Amber Tamblyn, and chef Daphne Oz, among other inspiring moms. Laura encourages readers to acknowledge their challenges, embrace their strengths, and celebrate their victories as we navigate the greatest adventure of all . . . Motherhood.
