“As a child therapist, I will recommend that moms read this book to be able to better provide for the needs of themselves, and ultimately, their children. When moms are happy, everyone’s life is better! Bert identifies opportunities for moms to get to know themselves as women, and encourages self-care without the guilt,” Lauren C.

“[Bert’s] an encourager who promotes not forgetting to care for yourself and reach for your passions, especially after becoming a mom. In her book, “Me Before Mom,” she shares some practical ways to not lose sight of being you, first and foremost. It’s a quick read that leaves you wanting more, and gets your mind thinking what’s next for you and your story.”  Jorden T.

“If you have been feeling alone in this motherhood thing, in her book she shares wise advice and insightful questions to ask yourself as you define what it means to take care of yourself. It’s about embracing the woman you became when you became a mom,” Melissa S.

“As a mom, it’s sometimes hard take time for ourselves, or to really value who we are outside of our roles as mothers. Bert really nails this subject as important for many reasons, which she discusses in this book. I really appreciated the encouragement she offered to all moms, and her positive and supportive tone. She talks openly about her own struggles and offers testimonials from other moms too. Overall, I would very highly recommend that every mom read this – no matter what stage,” Sally M.

“Bert’s book is my kind of book, short, sweet, and to the point. (I don’t have a lot of time to read so short books are my jam. Haha!) The book is not long, about 45 pages, but it doesn’t need to be long to get it’s point across. Bert discusses motherhood, self-loss, using self-assessments to help discover who you are now, the importance of self-care, and finding your passions again.” Pretty In Baby Food

“There are so many other great quotes from Bert’s book that belong on letter boards, and inspirational social media messages. Her book has fueled my quest to rediscover who I was before I became a mom, and to also help me learn the person I am after becoming a mom. I plan on using Bert’s book as just one of the many tools in my tool belt to better myself, and hopefully in bettering myself it will help me become a better mom.”
