Synopsis

Every year, millions of women wait with anticipation as they watch their test strip change from white to pink, thus beginning the awesome adventure of becoming a mother. This Chicken Soup book will find a place in the loving hearts and anxious minds of expectant mothers (and some fathers, too!). Written by expectant mothers, veteran moms, and fathers-to-be, these stories relate the physical, emotional, and spiritual joys and challenges of each stage of motherhood, from “barely showing” to the awkward last months, from labor and delivery to watching and caring for Baby.Some stories offer hope when the pregnancy isn’t medically perfect; others offer light-hearted humor to cope with weight gain, morning sickness, and other pregnancy woes; and still others offer words of wisdom for the seemingly daunting responsibilities of choosing a name, going through labor, and bringing a new life into the world. By relaying the insecurities and triumphs of a variety of moms and moms-to-be—including multiple births, premature births, adoptions, and single-parent families—this book will tug at the heartstrings and ease the fears of any expectant mother, regardless of her situation. Chapters include: Special Moments, Delivery Day, Challenges, On Adoption, Advice from Others, For Expectant Fathers, and The First Few Years. Chicken Soup for the Expectant Mother’s Soul will be a must-have on every baby-shower gift list, and an essential requirement for every birthing bag.
