Is it teething time for your little one?


Alison Canavan's Minding Mum is a simple yet revolutionary concept: new mums need to focus on themselves as a well as their children. 


Only 25% of new mums have reported looking after their own health and wellbeing post-pregnancy, but at such a vulnerable time it is vital to be kind to yourself. 


If a mum is not happy and healthy, it creates a domino effect within the family. This is why you need to look after both your physical and mental health better than ever, and who better to teach you than someone who has been there.



In Ireland, we prepare mums very well for pregnancy and childbirth, but when Baby arrives, mums tend to neglect themselves as they focus on their new arrival. 


After having her son, James, Alison admits that she felt overwhelmed. While she found a multitude of books and resources on how to care for her baby, there was little on how to look after a new mum. 


Through her support of Irish mothers and in writing this book, Alison hopes that that will soon change, 


Minding Mum is about making the choices that suit you and make you happy. It's time to move on from sacrificing ourselves and time to change the way we think about mums.


With chapters on nutrition, exercise, post-natal depression, mindfulness, beauty tips for busy mums and much more this is a thoughtful and valuable book that many new mums will treasure.
