Expecting Wonder: The Transformative Experience of Becoming a Mother
Bookstores and libraries are awash with pregnancy books, but the vast majority of them are primarily technical in nature, offering information about how your baby is growing and guidelines to help you have the best possible pregnancy and birth. But pregnancy is a transformative event, and what many parents-to-be crave most are stories. We want to know the nitty-gritty of the whole pregnancy experience, not just what doctors and parenting experts think we should know of the process. With Expecting Wonder, Brittany L. Bergman offers that experience in a series of essays that explore the anxieties, obsessions, joys, and anticipations of pregnancy, from waiting for the test to the first ultrasound, from the physical transformations and weight gain to the process of writing a birth plan. This beautiful book will be treasured by anyone who is currently expecting, as well as those who already have kids or who want them in the future.
