Dr. Dobrow DiMarco is the wise, funny, relatable, and brutally honest girlfriend that every new mom needs—and she’s also a seasoned psychologist who shows how tested clinical techniques can be used to address the worries, fears, frustrations, and feelings of loneliness that inevitably attend motherhood. Mom Brain is an outstanding contribution and a gift to new moms everywhere.

I can’t wait to recommend Mom Brain to my friends—both moms-to-be and those who have been around the block a time or two! This book has helped me define and prioritize what is important to me, and look at my relationships through a different lens. Most important, I no longer feel like I’m letting my baby and others down when I stand up for myself and my needs. I rarely reread books, but this one is different. I look forward to using it as a resource as both my son and I grow.
“This is a terrific book that all mothers should read. With a healthy dose of humor, Dr. Dobrow DiMarco shows you that it is normal to sometimes feel anxious and depressed about parenting—but that there are tools available to help. I’m a mother and a psychologist, and I still learned some new strategies for managing my own ‘mom brain’ by reading this book!

Dr. Dobrow DiMarco gets me—and that’s not easy! Finally, someone has written about ‘mom brain’ with both impressive knowledge and self-deprecating compassion, acknowledging the complexity while simultaneously keeping things simple. As both a clinical psychologist and a mother of young kids, I have only two things to say to Dr. Dobrow DiMarco: Bravo, and thank you.
