“Not only is the look of this workbook beautiful, but Dr. Rojas’ words are, too. She captures the essence of self-love in an easy-to-understand way and gives moms real-life tools to put into practice. As a maternal mental health provider myself, I highly recommend this workbook to women at any stage of motherhood.” —Marnie Levenson, LPCC, PMH-C, founder of Becoming Mothers Counseling

“This is not your average workbook. In a structured, yet creative and flexible style, Elsa holds the reader accountable for self-love while remaining compassionate to every stage of a new (and experienced) mother's transition. I love that it can be read in either a cover-to-cover, or random-pick-up-and-choose-a-page approach and still be incredibly inspiring, engaging, and effective. It's a must-read for all mothers.” —Alexandra T. Milspaw, Ph.D., M.Ed., LPC

“As a psychologist who works exclusively with pregnant and postpartum people, I have spent years looking for a workbook that can help support the adjustment to motherhood. The search is over. This workbook is a gift for all mothers seeking to find peace, joy, and meaning in their day-to-day experiences, and helps readers learn more about themselves in the process.” —Katherine Taylor, PsyD, MPH, PMH-C

“It is clear that Dr. Rojas understands what it's like to be a new mom! Self-Love Workbook for First-Time Moms is full of meaningful bite-sized skills-building exercises to address some of the more common early experiences of motherhood that we are often afraid to talk about. The workbook has a warm and accepting approach that helps the reader feel cared for, which is why I recommend it to any new mom.” —Alinne Barrera, clinical psychologist/professor and creator of the Mothers and Babies Online Course (
