Unraveling Motherhood


“In this beautiful book, Geraldine gently guides us through the unraveling of our journeys through motherhood to finding our identities again, so we can begin to work on loving and accepting who we are through the ups and the lows.This book is a wonderful toolkit to work through those confusing internal thoughts throughout motherhood. It offers evidence-based, tried, and tested self-care tools and techniques to guide us through the noise.”—Dr. Malie Coyne, author of Love In, Love Out: A Compassionate Approach to Parenting Your Anxious Child

Unraveling Motherhood offers real insights on maternal mental health, identity, vulnerability, and more for anyone who is lost in the blur of the voices in their minds.Drawn from real-life experiences, Unraveling Motherhood provides much-needed support for anyone navigating this beautiful, wonderful, terrifying stage of their life. And, by teaching skills to combat self-criticism, accept our own flaws and cultivate a positive mindset, it offers a motivational toolkit for mothers both old and new.We each have our own understanding of what motherhood entails and as these preconceived ideas falter and fail during the many intense, exhausting and overwhelming periods of motherhood, we begin to doubt our ability to be a mother. We begin to doubt ourselves.We begin to unravel. Yet through this process, we can find our own truth, identity, and purpose by challenging the assumptions we have about motherhood and ourselves.Motherhood is a tightly woven knot of physical, mental, emotional and social changes. But it doesn’t need to be. When the pattern is not working out the way we hoped, we must first untangle to start again — before stitching it back up, stronger than ever.About the AuthorGeraldine Walsh is a freelance journalist and writer.
