Product description


'A beautiful and informative companion of a book that'll help keep you grounded and present in the moments that often feel overwhelming. I found myself noting uplifting quotes I know will come in useful as mantras when needed. Anna has always been, and continues to be, a woman I take so much wisdom from. Her compassion and guidance for a mother's mental health is invaluable' -- Giovanna Fletcher

'This lovely book offers little gems of support, helping us to be in the moment and reminding us to direct some of our maternal love to ourselves. Anna Mathur's empathy and wise insight makes this an essential read for new mums' -- Fearne Cotton

'Like having a
reassuring chat with a wise friend, Anna's kind and grounding words provide the perfect companion for new mums making sense of their vast - and at times, conflicting! - feelings' -- Sarah Turner, AKA The Unmumsy Mum

comforting and reassuring book to help you navigate those tricky early years' -- Helen Thorn, one half of the Scummy Mummies

'Anna's Little Book of Calm for New Mums feels like such
a reassuring and necessary companion for motherhood. Broken down into the feelings and emotions that are sometimes hard to decipher when we're in the throes of parenting, Anna has such a wonderful way of bringing comfort, clarity and insight to many of the overwhelming challenges new mums can find themselves up against. The book is accessible and written with the wisdom of an expert but the love and compassion of a friend, and I think that's what makes it such a valuable resource on the rollercoaster of motherhood' -- Hollie de Cruz, bestselling author of Your Baby, Your Birth and Motherhood Your Way

a brilliant idea for a book. Anna's punchy chapters are like bite sized pep talks which make it incredibly accessible and unbelievably comforting for overwhelmed new mums. Like getting the most brilliant advice from your wisest and warmest friend. I wish I'd had this book when I had newborn' -- Ellie-Jane Taylor, Actor, Comedian, TV presenter and author of My Child and Other Mistakes

'Anna's a consistent source of
relatable, practical and reassuring advice when it comes to navigating the mental health challenges of motherhood. Packed with soothing words to validate the messy emotions that come with being a mum, along with useful quick tips to help bring calm to the chaos, this book is a gem of support. A must-have for every bookshelf and baby-change bag!' -- Molly Forbes, TV presenter and author of Body Happy Kids

5.0 out of 5 stars One chapter in and already feeling lighter !
By Emma22 on 26 May 2022
Having had yet another night of disturbed sleep with my toddler, and an early wakeup with my 6 year old, Anna's comforting words arrived just at the right time. One chapter in and I feel grounded, heard and most importantly... hopeful ! Having enjoyed Anna's previous two books, I know that this will not dissappoint !

5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect baby shower present
By Sarah M on 27 May 2022
I’ve only read a few of the chapters but so far (as expected) Anna’s words have been a blanket of comfort, reassurance and encouragement. She speaks honestly and in a way that makes you feel like a friend is talking with you. Her kindness and wisdom seeps through in all the pages! A perfect little book to sit on the arm of the sofa for those moments you get and need to hear some truths.
This would make a brilliant gift for a baby shower or first baby present! Highly highly recommend! Thank you Anna 💕
