A close friend is expecting a baby very soon – congratulations! I’m very, very happy for her and wish her all the best on the incredible journey she’s about to start. But, as seasoned mothers know, it’s a journey full of ups and downs – we love holding their tiny hands, watching their innocence as they sleep, and bonding with them as they grow. On the other hand, they cry incessantly – sometimes for no reason we can think of, their sleeping patterns are so random it’s frustrating, and we struggle with the first months of motherhood while we try to find our footing and develop mutual understanding with this tiny human being.

So, I dedicate the next couple of posts to my friend – with some articles and book recommendations to help her start out and figure out the complicated yet amazing days of early motherhood. May all moms-to-be also benefit from these posts and good luck! It’s definitely worth it.
