Dispatches from the Frontline of Love
By Antonella Gambotto-Burke
“A gifted writer, Antonella needs only a few lines to turn our attention toward the essential.”
– from the introduction by Michel Odent
How different would your life be if your priority were love?
Antonella Gambotto-Burke spent her pregnancy wondering whether she had it in her to love her child as deeply as she did sparkly Prada mules. And then she heard her daughter’s cry.
Wild with love, Antonella became an attachment parent. She couldn’t stop writing about her baby, and kept writing, even when her marriage threatened to shatter under the weight of sickness, bereavement, family pressures and the global financial crisis.
Mama, her newest book, is a moving account of her experience, as well as a provocative exploration of what it is to be a mother in an era of disconnection. With an introduction by renowned obstetrician and father of the practice of water-birthing, Michel Odent, Mama includes in-depth interviews with some of the world’s leading childcare experts, including Steve Biddulph, Sheila Kitzinger, Lysa Parker, Gabor Mate and attachment parenting Laura Markham.
An indispensable guide to meeting even the most difficult parenting challenges with love, Mama is a must-read book for every mama who wishes to parent more consciously.
Antonella Gambotto-Burke is the author of five books, and a contributor to a raft of international publications, including Vogue, Elle, Harper’s BAZAAR, Rolling Stone, The Mail on Sunday, South China Morning Post, The Weekend Australian and The Globe
and Mail, among others.
Married since 2005, Antonella is the doting mother of Bethesda, and her passions include reading, Ashtanga yoga and baking cakes. She also really likes eating cakes.
