"As a new mom, one of the most challenging things is managing intense and seemingly conflicting emotions. In Mama, You Are Enough
, Dr. Claire Nicogossian reminds us that these emotions are normal and okay. Whether we're feeling weepy and sad, exhausted and inexplicably angry, or downright giddy with joy, we are enough--for our kids and for ourselves.
