Advance praise for The Making of a Mother

“Valerie Davis Raskin blends her significant clinical expertise with her down-to-earth observations from years in the motherhood trenches. Her empathic and witty style invites all mothers to a greater understanding of themselves, their children, and perhaps even their own mothers. I recommend it highly.”
–Martha Manning, Ph.D., clinical psychologist, author of Undercurrents: A Life Beneath the Surface

“Moms today are surrounded by near-constant messages about everything we are doing wrong. Dr. Raskin offers the kind of grounded, comforting advice one good mom gives her closest friends. Moms everywhere, prepare to feel wonderful about yourselves.”
–Leslie Morgan Steiner, author of Mommy Wars: Stay-at-Home and Career Moms Face off on their Choices, Their Lives, Their Families

“If you have ever felt alone, puzzled, scared, or laden with self-doubt, this book will guide you to a place of understanding and empowerment. Thank you, Valerie, for creating a book that so completely covers the emotions, history, and realities that go into our own experiences of motherhood.”
–Samantha Ettus, creator of The Experts’ Guide to the Baby Years: 100 Things Every Parent Should Know

“Whatever stage of motherhood you’re in, you’ll find yourself relating to one of the many women represented in this book, and you’ll find strength and clarity to help overcome the challenge you face. As Lynette said on Desperate Housewives, ‘We should tell each other this stuff.’”
–Stephanie Triplett, co-author of The Mommy Chronicles and co-host of The
Mom Chronicles radio show
