Real Simple Mama

Real. Simple. Parenting.

“Real Simple Motherhood” has arrived!

Seven months of work. Countless hours of writing, research, editing, formatting, and meditating. Sleepless nights. Stress and changes plans and stomping over my comfort zone.

It’s here. It’s finally here!

I am so proud to announce that my first major book, Real Simple Motherhood: The Fourth Trimester, is now available on Amazon KDP.

This book is massive. It’s extensive. It has a bit of profanity. And damn am I happy with it.

The term “the fourth trimester” refers to a baby’s first three months of life. During this fragile time, the baby is more used to life in the womb than they are out in our world. Your newborn must deal with discomfort: the first time being hungry, being cold, having a wet diaper, and being outside of a perfect environment. They’ll have to learn a hell of a lot, too.

Real Simple Motherhood: The Fourth Trimester is PUBLISHED AND AVAILABLE! - Real Simple Mama

New parents and caregivers should be well researched in how to care for newborn child; this includes topics such as: how to feed your child, what to do about diapers, what will happen with newborn procedures right after birth, and many other topics.

My book covers all of them.

This book covers the following topics in extensive chapters which include reference links as well as personal experience:

  • Newborn Medical Procedures: shots, tests, examinations, measurements, scores;
  • Feeding: breastfeeding, pumping, formula;
  • Sleep: tips, suggestions, norms;
  • Diapering: disposables, cloth;
  • Baby Health: vaccinations, finding a pediatrician, appointments, home care, when to worry;
  • Baby Wearing: the how and why of wearing your baby;
  • Newborn Gear: the essentials and the “wants” for your newborn, and why.

It is my hope that this book will open the minds and hearts of parents, grandparents, babysitters and nannies. I want to educate and support everyone who cares for a precious young life, and help them make the best decision for that child.

And from October 10-14, to kickoff of celebratory wine drinking on my part,

all of my eBooks are free to download!

You can download any or all of the components which make up Real Simple Motherhood: The Fourth Trimester, including the full collection!

I appreciate you sharing this out, spreading the word, and letting new or expectant parents know about these texts. I essentially wrote this for pre-mother me, and I know that it can be really helpful!


  1. Hello Sarah, I wanted to tell you that your blog is beautiful. I only wish I would have had something like this when I became a mother twenty years ago. I will be sure to inform any mother-to-be of your blog. Keep up the great work and service you are doing.
