"Love this Book!! This Book was so helpful to my husband and I when we were sleep deprived and needed a quick refresher on what to do. I also love the fact that it's a book that is quick to the point and gives you the most important information. It is so hard to sit down and read some of these mommy to be books that are 300 + pages and they talk in circles. This book was a awesome read and I recommend it to all my new mommies to be!"

Welcome to Motherhood.

A look into the postpartum fase.

You can invite author Gea to share her special story about delivering and receiving postpartum care on two different continents within 20 months and the manual she translated “The First 8 Days of Being a Mom”.Gea Meijering 

  At the event we can discuss postpartum care from a mom’s point of view, have a little quiz  with informative, revealing and sometimes funny questions, and talk about ways to empower yourself as a soon- to- be mom to minimize stress during the postpartum period and create a sense of emotional ease on multiple levels, allowing more space for mother-baby attachment and bonding. 

Would you like to have the writer of The First 8 Days of Being a Mom -Gea Meijering-  as a speaker at your event? Contact her at
