Book Review: MUMS, MENTAL HEALTH AND MILESTONES by Author Rakhi Kapoor – A holistic guide to aspiring parents!

At the beginning of the pregnancy, every woman mulls over about Motherhood and what fibs ahead in life. The author calls it the M factor, motherhood, maternal instincts etc. She goes about figuring out how to cope with the initial signs of the pregnancy like nausea, vomiting and fatigue. Another M factor then whacks her. It’s called mood swings. Actually, it nods her and everyone around her, be it her husband, her parents, siblings or buddies. In the yore, the mentally and emotionally well-being g of anticipating women was dismissed, and the women endured secretly. Mood swings and baby brine are not some mode or ford that determining women are putting up in the present scenario.

This book elaborates on how adversities can alter positivity. Moreover, there are reasons why women endure these situations and how they can overcome circumstances.

Women should avoid intrusive advice which is easy to say; however, difficult to change. The author has beautifully jotted down the experience on top of that for those females too who faced the pandemic.

Overall, it’s a good read for all the mothers to be and not to forget for males to know more about their spouse.
