Tara is FABULOUS and this book is a must for moms! The chapter on our Inner Critic is worth the entire price of the book itself.
Tara’s special brand of coaching shines through this book and her practical wisdom will have you taking notes in the margins.

This book is the reason this website exists, that my work exists. When I didn’t know if I could or should do this I stumbled across this amazing gem and everything changed. If you’re stuck and wondering - READ THIS BOOK.

If you are a survivor of postpartum depression, anxiety, OCD, PTSD, or psychosis and you are in a relationship you should definitely check this out.
Practical steps from folks who understand where you are, where you’ve been, and where you want your relationship to be.
I LOVE INSTACART. For real. I now do all of my grocery shopping from my couch. Usually in my pajamas. AND I’m saving money! It is so much simpler and easier for me to stay organized and on budget when I’m not in the store with two small kiddos.
