Description - Fear of Food by Carol Bacchi
A brave and compelling story of the difficulties of motherhood. Carol Bacchi tells of her battle with her baby son, and the difficulty she encountered encouraging him to eat. Surrounded by inept or dismissive medical practitioners, struggling with sleep deprivation, and alone with her fears of her child developing ongoing problems, this book combines diary entries and personal reflections to describe a mother's nightmare. This book is immensely topical reflecting current concerns about the demanding nature of motherhood, the difficulties of reconciling infant care and paid work, and the trend of older women becoming mothers for the first time.
