CINCINNATI, OH, October 06, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- From the first glance at the cover, it's easy to see that The War on Normal is not just another post-partum, get your body "back" after baby book. A naked torso of a woman with visible stretch marks on her abdomen and the curvaceous outline of her waist beckons weary mamas to open up and dive in.
Jenny Baker and Sarah Blight's new book, The War On Normal: how to find contentment in your post-baby body, is unique in its approach. After feeling alone and inadequate in their own post-baby bodies, authors Jenny and Sarah decided to do the hard work of learning how to find contentment amidst a culture and internal pressure telling them they're not good enough. They undertook an extensive research project, hearing from over 300 moms about their own post-baby body journeys. Jenny and Sarah integrated these real-life struggles and perspectives in their book, along with practical tools to help women move a little closer to contentment.
"Early on in the writing process, we both confessed that we hated each other's chapters and would never read each other's books. We realized that it actually didn't make sense for us to write a book together with such unique approaches to life and to writing. But we also came to the conclusion that, even though it would take three years and a lot of blood, sweat and tears, that we needed to unite. We needed to show women that coming together not only makes us stronger, but it helps us find contentment in many areas of our lives and that we are better women because of it" says Sarah.
If chapter titles such as "The Myth of Normal" and "Being at War With Oneself" don't make you curious to pick up this read, then "The Fear-ocious Fight" and "Arming Our Kids for Battle" certainly will.
"We're thankful to not only have found each other," says Jenny, "but we're also happy to have created a powerful tool to inspire women towards hope and contentment."
Jenny and Sarah write early on in the book, "It's going to get uncomfortable before it gets meaningful." And boy, are they right. You'll just have to pick up a copy to see for yourself.
The War On Normal: how to find contentment in your post-baby body will be available in softcover, and kindle formats on Amazon.com on Friday, October 6, 2017. Check out http://www.TheWarOnNormal.com for more information.
