Maternal Instinct
Does motherhood change how a woman feels love? Are mothers destined to mimic their own mom’s parenting style? Does the brain of a new mom ever really bounce back? The answers, explored in Abigail Tucker’s new book, have powerful implications for women, families and our society. A longtime writer for Smithsonian Magazine, Tucker writes Mom Genes to be scientific and accessible. Part scientific odyssey, part memoir, it weaves the latest research from top labs across the globe including Yale, Princeton, Leiden and more​ with Tucker’s personal experiences to create a delightful, surprising and poignant portrait of motherhood.
