In Becoming Mum, Dr. Koa Whittingham encourages readers to engage in interactive exercises that explore and vitalize the psychological passage into motherhood. Koa does an excellent job of normalizing topics such as preparing for and distancing yourself from unwanted advice about parenting, being more self-compassionate when doubts about your parenting choices arise, working through relationship changes with your partner, and making values-based choices about family matters. I think this book has a wide appeal.  Its direct approach to how topics are relevant to specific issues that might arise given certain circumstances (e.g., postpartum depression, morning sickness) is novel.  I highly recommend it.
