The hardest job in the world just got a lot easier.

There is no question that being a mother is challenging, but this fun, frank, and prescriptive guide tries to do the impossible and make new motherhood easier. Featuring interviews with hundreds of moms and candid stories from author Claudine Wolk’s own experiences as a mother, It Gets Easier!...and Other Lies We Tell New Mothers mixes humor, honesty, and insider strategies that will give new moms a “leg-up.” This upbeat and entertaining book drives home the point that new moms are not alone and that there are things they can do to make motherhood a little more controllable and lot more enjoyable. It addresses such issues as:

• “The Talk” you need to have with your husband before you give birth

• what you really need to know about labor and delivery

• the importance of a baby schedule (no matter what anyone else says)

• the 6 Baby Commandments that can foster good eating and sleeping habits

• 5 new mom mantras that will help keep you sane

• body image after giving birth

• how to keep housework to a minimum

Complete with resources for further exploration and a helpful glossary, this funny, irreverent book will help ease every new mother’s frustration.
