"Oh how I had waited for this day, but never anticipated how one could feel so put together and in pieces all at once.
How one tiny person could cause all this chaos in my heart and home.
And my husband and I were like two entirely new beings, the sun on our face one minute and at the bottom of the ocean the next.
But there, my anchor.
Reminding me of who I am, not just who I was."
'My After All', named after Jess's viral poem, is her final book in the series of early motherhood poetry and prose, after 'From One Mom to a Mother' and 'All I See Is You', which have sold tens of thousands worldwide. It delves into the raw and the real with a beauty that shines through even the messy truths. These pieces reflect the love we have for our growing children, our transformation as mothers, and our relationships post kids.
Jess doesn't "leave frills around the fabric of early motherhood", she writes about the love we live and breathe for them, but also the things we find hard to talk about, some things that might leave you saying, "me too".
This book of poetry & prose will leave you feeling empowered and seen, listened to and understood.
These pages are for those late nights, your bedside, or gifts.
"Jessica's writing was the postpartum life raft I didn't know I needed until I found it. I really struggled with the monumental shift that becoming a mother can be, when I found Jessica's poetry I felt seen, heard, less alone and validated. Her words are healing, deeply relatable and the comforting tonic all new mothers should have on their bedside table. Her children's books are equally as wonderful, my little boy adored The Rainbow in my Heart so much and we regularly take the sentiments from it to help him through emotional ups and downs. A must for every little girl and boy's book shelf." - Caroline Foran, No1 Best Selling Author of 'Owning It'
Jessica is also a best selling author of 'The Rainbow In My Heart', a children's picture book on emotions, 'My Superpowers' out soon
