This is a great book for anyone who is pregnant! Whether you are ambivalent or excited about your pregnancy, this book offers a raw, vulnerable, and safe place for reflection. It guides a mother into connecting with the heart and spirit of her child. In my career as a home visit nurse for first-time parents in poverty, we talk about the importance of physical nourishment during pregnancy. This book, however, focuses on caring for the heart and soul of the mother, as well as the spirit of the child. Both are of equal importance. I’d recommend this to all newly pregnant families, hands down!
