The text emphasizes how siblings can be helpers to both baby and parents, while forging their own relationships with "their baby," and outlines the positive aspects of being an older girl or boy. Here is a warm, insightful book that will help the whole family joyously and lovingly welcome the newest member into their lives.

Does it affect your baby if you are depressed or stressed out? Is it OK to leave your baby alone to cry? What is the role of a father? How can you create a good bond between you and your baby? For how long should you be apart from your baby during the first year? These are just a few of the many questions that all new parents face. But, at last, "Babies in Mind" is here to help you. Backed by extensive research as well as clinical and personal experience, psychologist Jenny Perkel gently guides you in deciding what is best for both you and your baby. Being a new parent is immensely challenging. Not only do you have to handle your baby's physical needs but you have to attend to your baby's psychological, needs too. Babies in Mind is the only book that explains how to give babies in their first year of life what they really need from a purely psychological perspective. Written for both mothers and fathers, the book is informed by psychological and medical research which shows that emotional difficulties in later life can sometimes have their roots in infancy. The way in which babies are handled and related to by their caregivers has a direct and powerful link to the kind of people they will grow into.

Babies Need Mothers How Mothers Can Prevent Mental Illness in their Children is a rare example of careful conceptual reasoning about basic categories in medicine. Ultimately this is what is sorely needed in rational thinking about the mysteries of mental illness. This book is a fascinating contribution and well worth reading, precisely because it upsets the applecart. I recommend it to anyone who wants to get beyond rigid categorization in psychiatry and look at enduring problems of the mind in new ways. Raymond Moody, Author, Life After Life; MD, Psy.D, PhD Philosophy Dr. McKenzies book is revolutionary. Some long sought answers to causes of psychosis and other severe mental illnesses are explained in clear and understandable language. He not only describes cause and effect, but also provides clear remedies for healing that are unique and long lasting. He shows clearly and unmistakably the way to recover health, and his findings could change the prevailing way of treating chronic mental difficulties. Harold Stern, PhD, Psychoanalyst This book is a further development of ideas described in Delayed Posttraumatic Stress Disorders from Infancy: The Two Trauma Mechanism by Clancy D. McKenzie, MD and Lance S. Wright, MD. I have used this latter book in my courses at Georgetown University, in courses on the family and courses on philosophy of psychoanalysis. The ideas of the book were enlightening, stimulative and provocative. I plan to continue to use the ideas of Dr. McKenzie in my classes. In his new book Dr. McKenzie makes recommendations about child rearing practices. His new book is rich in ideas and promises a fruitful debate about the psychological origins of mental illness. No one will regret reading this book. Wilfried Ver Eecke Professor in Philosophy Adjunct Professor in Psychology Georgetown University

1. Care for Mom after delivery. 2. Breastfeeding. 3. Proper latch techniques. 4. Things you should also remember to do. 5. Bleeding 6. Postpartum depression (also called the baby Blues) 7. Your Newborn Baby’s personality. This book is to give mothers some information about what to expect after her baby is born. With simple explanations about why things are done to the mother and her baby without complicated and confusing medical wording. It’s as simple as I could make it. The following pages are based on my many years of experience as a post-partum nurse and covers many of the questions I receive on a daily basis. The following chapters are Pearls of wisdom and additional tips to help you and your new baby start your family off by putting your best foot forward. Congratulations on your little miracle or miracle’s and best wishes for the future. You may also find useful information in the following books. Breastfeeding...What to expect after your miracle has arrived. First days home...What to expect after your miracle has arrived Care for Mom after delivery: You will have pain… Child birth is traumatic for your body. It is normal t feel a certain amount of pain. Especially if you have a caesarian section. A C-section is major abdominal surgery. Not just having a baby. Your recovery will take more time and different care. The most obvious thing you will notice is the pushing on your stomach. Nurses do what is called a fundus check. They push on your stomach to feel your uterus. This is to make sure it is clamping down and controlling your bleeding. You will bleed after delivery, this is to make sure you don’t hemorrhage (bleed too much). It is painful and most mothers don’t want the nurses to do this but it is one of the most important things they do for your safety. Another important point is to urinate after delivery. Keeping your bladder empty will help a lot with controlling you’re bleeding and pain. If the bladder is not emptied often it can put pressure on the uterus and all the tender tissues in your abdomen. This will cause an increase in pain. A full bladder can keep your uterus from clamping down, this can cause you to bleed excessively.
