The New Mom Code: Shatter Expectations and Crush It at Motherhood (Hardcover)
Forget everything society has taught you about becoming a mom.
Successful curve model Amanda Tice is here to tell you what motherhood is really like.
Standing exposed in a scant bikini in front of Heidi Klum's creative team, revealing a postpartum body she hardly recognized, Amanda faced the harsh realization that she would never be her "old self" again.
In refreshingly honest, hilarious, and raw conversation, Amanda takes you through her clumsy journey into motherhood and shares how she learned to embrace her new self-stretch marks, rolls, and all. With journal prompts, exercises, and "Tice Advice," Amanda helps you
- Understand what really takes place postpartum-mentally and physically.
- Thrive through the first few years of motherhood.
- Learn how to love and embrace your new identity.
This book will rewire your brain and rewrite your new mom code-because, Mama, you deserve to have it all (and more)
"Amanda has the head of a brilliant analyst and the heart of all mothers who love their children to the moon and back. Reading this book will confirm your own insights and give words to the ones you have yet to express."
-Dr. Nancy L. Stein, Professor Emeritus, Department of Psychology, PhD, University of Chicago
