What readers say about Mommy Overwhelm:
 "I love your sense of urgency on this issue – the way you talk about reaching out and getting the community you deserve. Too many times, women end up doing it all and struggling in silence. So many moms can “keep it together” but that’s not the way to live. They deserve more help and more support."
- Anonymous 
"What a beautiful, accessible book you have written for stressed out mothers (fathers) Mommy Overwhelm: A Holistic Approach to Parental Stress and Depression. I was touched when I read "If a friend is showing these signs, now is the time to act. (…) Do something amazing. Bring a basket of food, take your friend to a spa, go and give her a pedicure, set up a helper's association, whatever you think might help your friend. You can make a change, and sometimes just a small token of attention is enough to change someone‟s course." May this book reach many mothers."
- Joyce Hoek-Pula (translated from Dutch), doula and prenatal yoga teacher

One of the hardest things is reaching out to others when you already feel so fragile. Although the book does not replace a medical professional, Laura has so much empathy, encouragement and practical advice to help you heal. I particularly loved that there were so many little things that I could do, ideas that I wouldn't have come up with on my own, that were manageable and easy enough not to add to the burden of things that I should do but couldn't. I recommend this book to any mama who struggles sometimes with Mommy Overwhelm!

It's such a challenge to condense all the different principles and techniques, but less is more for parents who are at the early stages of trying to get their head around it all. Your book is very accessible, very easy to read, well broken down into bite size chunks.

  1. Love your website. I am fundraiser and art teacher for 25 kids in the local orphanage in Mexico - ages 4-15. I am always looking for art projects that will interest all the kids. Most of the time, the project is too simple for the older kids. Can you recommend any sources for good art projects?
