Motherhood 101: A memoir of my experience as a newlywed juggling pregnancy/motherhood, marriage, work and a social life
If babies could talk, they would say their mother was God.
One of the miracles of the human story is positively the nurturing capabilities of mothers. Beyond carrying that pregnancy for nine months and eventually bringing it forth, mothers go through a whole complex regimen every day to sustain the fledgling human life while taking care of themselves and their home. No wonder some allude mystical powers to the process of childbirth.
But whether supernatural or superwoman, motherhood is an amazing passage that has kept mankind populating Planet Earth. And when one woman steps out to catalogue her own moments of indescribable joy and heart-wrenching pain, the result is this wonderful gift of a book.
Amma Agyeman-Prempeh’s work is based on a selfless narrative of the most intimate encounters of motherhood set in a cosmopolitan environment. In the midst of all the juggling, the triumphant twins of love and courage rise and rise.

This book – A Toast To Fatherhood – primarily addresses the subject of fatherhood from the perspective of sons and daughters. The book builds on the common knowledge that a son or daughter is anyone born by a woman. Here, a father is defined to mean more than just biological father.
Through the chapters of A Toast to Fatherhood, the author seamlessly shares real life stories in addressing some thought-provoking issues related to the child-father relationship. These include:
- What is fatherhood: Is it a divinely initiated human institution or a mere collection of individuals called fathers?
- Why do son and daughters wait for their fathers to die before they find beautiful words in tributes to read over the dead bodies?
- And if so, then why shouldn’t you and I propose a toast to fatherhood and to fathers while they are alive?
Children are needy and dependent, and they know almost nothing about life. They function mostly on emotion rather than reason. They are simple, love without restriction and see the world as presented to them. Young children begin very early to internalize information which either encourages or discourages disclosure. This book attempts to highlight how actions and inactions of parents, teachers and significant others can make children optimise their potential and give their best to society or be a danger to themselves and to society in general.
In this current era, women have had to take up jobs to support the home, especially in roles formerly dominated by men. In order to juggle the responsibilities of work and motherhood, the need to assign some responsibilities to caregivers or nannies is gradually gaining grounds. This book explores the contemporary phenomenon of engaging nannies and domestic assistants as a component of contemporary parenting and in addition, shares some best practices on how to prepare to do so more effectively.
The book has extensive discussions on behavioral needs and developmental stages in children. It also captures the influence of technology and social media on children, effects of strained parental relationships on children and parenting children with special needs. It further touches on parenting in a world of changing sexual orientations.
This book is well researched and beneficial to parents, guardians and those planning to have children. It is a page turner and highly recommended to everyone.
