What Keeps Her Awake at Night? Women's Uncomfortable Tales

Author Name: Dr. Shilpa Singh Dhayal | Format: Paperback | Genre : Self-Help | Other Details

Women are as resilient as they come, but some secret pains do not let us sleep. 

We hide them away from others, pretend we are okay and keep suffering. Why? 

From that bad touch of childhood behind closed doors to that name-calling for late marriage in public, from that miscarriage we suffered in silence to that infertility problem that isolated us from the mother’s club coldly, women carry a lot of hidden pain and unspoken predicaments that they deal with secretly.

. This book shines a light on seven such less-talked-about emotional ordeals that women grapple with and shares some real insights through deeply personal real-life experiences of the author and other women who faced these emotional crises. 

The book offers simple yet effective and practical advice on how women can deal with their trauma and how talking about their private pain and dilemmas to at least one other person can help them and others in their shoes to heal.

Through candid disclosures, reflections, and many personal stories, the book aims to not only validate the pain of women in these situations but to also help them emerge stronger and feel less alone. The author hopes that the book sparks off an open and honest conversation and helps to normalize discussion around some of these very emotionally difficult topics that touch so many women and too many couples.
