Best book to read while pregnant

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I am so sick of the typicsl pregnancy books telling you what to buy, how to eat, when to workout, how much to work out, yada ya. I found this one through a local author here in Bozeman. Nurturing Your Child's Inner Life by Mary Ellen Maunz. I got it from Amazon. This is my second baby and I so wish I had this on the first one. Really gives you an in depth perspective on who this little being is and how they will move through stages. Not so much a pregnancy book as an insight to children book.

Someone mentioned on another thread Women Who Run With Wolves for a book to read in pregnancy. I hadn't thought of it before but think it is a GREAT suggestion so I plan I adapting it to the list I suggest as well. Sheepish.gif  Really also instead of reading a whole lot (though I have read Birthing Within to facilitate this suggestion) I have been journaling/drawing/sketching more around my inner journey of what is going on. I find it to be really helpful.

 

I might look up the book you suggest as well it looks wonderful.
