WHY YOU NEED IT
Because no matter how hard the day or how overwhelming motherhood can feel, it's important to know you're not alone. The Motherhood is a collection of letters from some of Australia’s favourite women including Zoe Foster Blake, Clare Bowditch, Clementine Ford and Monty Diamond, sharing what they wish they’d known about life with a newborn. No two stories are alike – but all are generous, compassionate and deeply honest. The book was inspired by Jamila's own experience as a new mother and makes a powerful gift for any new mother. The stories told by these beautiful writers from diverse backgrounds can work as a salve, building the bonds of shared experience and helping to develop a deep sense of connection and community.
We are obsessed with everything Jamila Rizvi does. The former editor-in-chief of MamaMia and author of Not Just Lucky (that inspires all the confidence in navigating work and beyond), Jamila practises what she preaches in her irrepressible warm, personal, but no-bs tone. She's brought together some of the greatest female writers in Australia in this beautiful collection of essays to help new mums laugh and cry, but most importantly, feel connected and not alone.
