This is not a baby book – it’s a 12-month diary for new mums that starts when the baby is born, with a monthly focus on relevant areas of mental health and wellbeing. Written by a Clinical Psychologist and mum-of-two, it is packed with useful psychological tips and strategies to support new mums while they are navigating the often tricky first year of motherhood.

The Mama Diary supports new mums to feel empowered to acknowledge and feel validated for the challenges that motherhood brings. It provides a reassuring voice with bitesize strategies to help to prevent them feeling low, anxious or fed up, and methods to incorporate practical techniques that will help into their everyday lives.
