A New Age Manual for the New Mother


“The hand that rocks the cradle is the hand that heals.”

After childbirth, we are at the threshold of a new beginning. A new life is about to begin, and we want to make the right choices…
I desire for every mother to make confident and informed choices for herself and her child at the onset of life. This would lay a holistic foundation in terms of health, relationship and wellbeing in years to come. Above all, I want to inspire motherhood in the modern woman.
I sincerely hope this book will serve to crystallize and preserve such holistic wisdom at a juncture of time when we need a balance between the new and the old. I wish for this manual to be a reliable companion to a new Mom, gently guiding her with love, assurance and humor as she embarks on a beautiful journey.
This could be a legacy you and I could pass on to our daughters and granddaughters, a wonderful tribute to motherhood.
