Raising children as special work

Bringing up children is important work, yet there is little support for raising families. Parents with young children are pressured into jobs and childcare, even though many want the choice of being a full time mother or father. Joan Salter helps you choose by portraying motherhood and homemaking as special work.

Women share their experiences of what mothering means to them. This 'career of the heart' can be seen as a soulful and spiritual activity, not just a practical job. Mothering with soul brings a profound intimacy with your child through pregnancy, birth and the early years.

Available from Hawthorn Press, Steiner Books, Rudolf Steiner College Bookstore, Waldorf Books, Waldorf Education in Canada

Three are sections on: expecting, birthing, mothering, breast feeding, milks for weaning, the rhythms of the day, the evolution of consciousness, work, childcare, the growth of love and grandmothers.

Joan Salter founded the Gabriel Baby Centre in Melbourne. She saw mothering as a unique contribution to life, which offers untold treasures of the human heart.

"I would like to thank Joan Salter on behalf of the countless mothers whose work is not given the moral or material recognition it deserves ... A revolutionary book."
Dr Michaela Glöckler, Afterword
