Yes, you can put yourself first sometimes. No, it won’t make you a bad mum. Definitely, a happy mama makes for a happy family.

Are you struggling to figure out who you are now that you’re a mum? Do you sometimes feel like you’re coming last in your own life? Do those calm, cellulite-free celebrity mothers make you want to turn toddler and start screaming in the supermarket aisle? It’s okay, you’re not alone. Journalist and life coach Amy Taylor-Kabbaz was one of those women who put themselves last, until she discovered that putting herself first was better not only for her, but for her kids too.

Happy Mama is the collected wisdom from Amy’s makeover from strung-out parent to happy, self-loving mum. Including interviews with working mums, psychologists, counsellors and spiritual leaders, it is full of practical and empowering advice that will help you change the way you feel about motherhood so the whole family can flourish.

About the Author

Amy Taylor-Kabbaz is a writer, Mindful Mama coach, and mother to three young children. After more than a decade covering breaking news and current affairs for the ABC, her ‘traditional’ career took an unexpected turn when she found herself lost, overwhelmed and diagnosed with a thyroid condition after the birth of her first daughter. Seven years and two more babies later she now runs Happy Mama, a successful website for new Mums. She is a columnist and author, runs the highly successful ‘Reconnect’ online program, and is an internationally accredited life coach specialising in mindfulness and self-care.

        I read the book while doing Amy's Reconnect course and it was a perfect accompaniment but I think it would be great to read by itself also. I purchased a second one for my sister.

          Great little book. Full of good tips. And good size to slip into your handbag/nappy bag. I wish I'd read it earlier.

                  Having been through Amy's courses I was interested to read this book, to see whether there was anything else she had for me. And she hasn't disappointed. In this book, Amy has added a new layer to her teachings, supportive and relatable, as always. Even after all the work I've already done with her, I've learnt more through reading this book. I truly appreciate her honesty and how well she communicates her story to offer practical advice and guidance. Easy to read, either cover to cover or a bit at a time.

                  The book itself is a great size too, easily fitting in an average size handbag, so it's excellent for taking on the road.
