Publisher's Summary

The mother-daughter relationship sets the stage for our state of health and well-being for our entire lives. Because our mothers are our first and most powerful female role models, our most deeply ingrained beliefs about ourselves as women come from them. And our behavior in relationships, with food, with our children, with our mates, and with ourselves, is a reflection of those beliefs. Once we understand our mother-daughter bonds, we can rebuild our own health, whatever our age, and create a lasting positive legacy for the next generation.

Mother-Daughter Wisdom introduces an entirely new map of female development, exploring the "five facets of feminine power", which range from the basics of physical self-care to the discovery of passion and purpose in life. This blueprint allows any woman, whether or not she has children, to repair the gaps in her own upbringing and create a better adult relationship with her mother. If she has her own daughter, it will help her be the mother she has always wanted to be.

Drawing on patient case histories and personal experiences, Dr. Northrup also presents findings at the cutting edge of medicine and psychology. Discover:

  • How to lay the nutritional foundation to prevent eating disorders and adult diseases
  • The truth about the immunization controversy, and the true meaning of immunity
  • How we can change our genetic health legacy
  • Why financial literacy is essential to women's health
  • How to foster healthy sexuality and future "love maps" in our daughters
  • How to balance independence with caring, and individual growth with family ties

    Written with warmth, enthusiasm, and rare intelligence, Mother-Daughter Wisdom is an indispensable book destined to change lives and become essential reading for all women.

    Wish I had read this book 30 years ago.

    Even thou my daughters are grown up now, I found this book wit such a fountain of wisdom and powerful information. I can't recommend it enough to every young mother to read it. Love listening the soft yet confident voice of Dr Northrup, listen to the audiobook 3 times, she is a true pioneer in women's health! I also have a hard copy of the book as a reference.
    Thanks for such a powerful book!!!

    This Audio Book is extremely informative and 'easy to hear'. Christiane Northrup, M.D. uses her experiences to help guides us to being better 'women'. Would make a great present for anyone who is thinking of having a family. EMPOWERING!

    Every day learning for every day women.

    Would you listen to Mother-Daughter Wisdom again? Why?

    My sister inlay bought me the hard copy 6 years ago when my daughter was born and I just never got around to reading it. I was glad to have found it here on Audible and have now finally been able to absorb it's wonderful content.

    Complexities of the female & it's legacy.

    The book was a bit difficult to get into; as I first found it to be too complex and detailed to follow audibly. I stayed with the book and heard the author as to say that as mothers, we do our responsible duties, but not to beat ourselves up for the failures of our own legacies. We can only control ourselves, so let us live and let live.
