Claudine Wolk, a southeastern PA mom and author of “It Gets Easier… and Other Lies We Tell New Mothers“, visited my local MOMS Club meeting last spring. At that time, my son was 9 months old and I was just figuring out how to get out of the house and (almost) to my destination on time. I read her book at a great time because I had been through (and survived) the first few months caring for my little man.
This book was written for those new moms who have struggled with the “on demand” feeding and sleeping through the night issues, not to mention the every day aspects of life as a stay-at-home mom. Like other new moms, Claudine had questions. The answer that kept popping up was to wait – it will get easier. Unable to find the clear-cut, unadulterated answers she was searching for in pregnancy and childbirth books, she set off to gather the answers on her own. Claudine conducted her own interviews to gather first hand information on the difficulties of becoming a mom and stay-at-home wife, and compiled them in her book with some humor sprinkled in.
Claudine is available to speak to local Philadelphia area MOMS Clubs or Book clubs FOR FREE. You can contact her via her website www.help4newmoms.com or go directly to her comments/questions page.
