Before you continue on this beautiful journey, ask yourself: what is the thing that defines you? Not as a mother, not as a wife, but as you.’
More than a Mama is a heartfelt, unrelentingly honest memoir that portrays the life-changing wonders of motherhood. From pregnancy to postpartum, the author traces her journey as she filters expectations from reality and busts common myths. She creates a world that prioritizes her needs as an individual and a mother and provides valuable insights on diet, fitness and mental health during pregnancy as well as postpartum.
Candid, light and effervescent, the book explores various themes such as how to read the signs of your body, how to develop a covetous mind–body connection, how to eat what is right for you, how to customize your own workout and diet plan and, above all, how to boost your confidence as a mother.
Followed and loved by millions worldwide as an actor and content creator, Chhavi Mittal opens herself up through her writing and shares her secrets of how, slowly but surely, she learned to do it all.
