The moment you see that little + on the pregnancy test, everything changes. Baby comes first. And that's absolutely beautiful. Except, somewhere along the way between pregnancy test and delivery, coordinating school pickup, wiping noses, and incorporating workplace demands, the health of the mother takes a backseat. Mom Hacks changes all that. Mom Hacks author Dr. Darria Gillespie outlines five building blocks (Purpose, Nutrition, Exercise, Sleep and Stress) and over 100 tips to lead mothers into peak health, rest, and vibrancy. Similar to popular bestsellers such as The 4-Hour Body, Mom Hacks offers a useful guide to health and fitness, addressing the question: what are the tiniest changes that produce the biggest results? Here, the answers come from a doctor who is also a mom.
Dr Darria's witty, clever and thoughtful approach to mothering advice will make you comfortable with the chaotic beauty of raising the most treasured friend you will ever have. Go get 'em! --Mehmet Oz, MD, Host of The Dr Oz Show and Attending Physician at New York Presbyterian-Columbia University Mom Hacks, written from the heart of a mother and the scientific mind of a doctor, is a fun and informative read for busy parents. My favorite 'hack' is Dr. Darria's wise advice about how moms can keep their own mind happy, even when their kids are draining. --William Sears, MD, co-author of The Baby Book
