Pregnancy: Must Reads!!!

I am a reader and researcher. During my pregnancy, I read these books and found them to be great resources! Thought I’d share. 😀

I enjoyed how this book approached the spiritual aspect of pregnancy as it relates to Judaism.

I looked forward to reading about and praying over my babies development each week.

Great resource! A no-nonsense guide to natural remedies for pregnancy, birth, postpartum, and little ones.

Great overview of nutrition for pregnancy and what “eating for two” is all about.

  Discusses childbirth as a right of passage and a natural (not medical) event.

One thought on “Pregnancy: Must Reads!!!

  1. We found the What to Expect series by Heidi Murkoff helpful. The series includes What to Expect Before You’re Expecting, What to Expect When You’re Expecting, What to Expect the First Year, and What to Expect the Second Year. I’ve heard that she will soon come out with a new one about what to expect during the preschool years. There are also auxiliary books to the series including a book solely about nutrition, a pregnancy journal/planner, and a babysitter’s handbook.
