When I was pregnant with Edith I found myself doing a lot of reading in preparation for her arrival. While I wasn’t big into the parenting books there were a few pregnancy books that I just fell in love with. This time around however I am kicking myself a bit for not spending more time reading two of my favorite pregnancy books Birthing From Within and Sacred Pregnancy.
Sacred Pregnancy is just an amazing book that helps prepare you for birth and motherhood but also forces you to really focus in every week on your pregnancy. I think one thing that we forget when it comes to pregnancy is that it’s not all about the baby but also about the mother. Sacred Pregnancy brings the focus back to the mother and the rite of passage from pregnancy to motherhood.
You can read my full review of Sacred Pregnancy here.
This is seriously a beautiful book/journal for the mom-to-be and for that reason I would love to give one copy away in your choice of a paperback copy or a Kindle copy. This giveaway is not sponsored and I will be providing the winner with the book at my own cost.
During my pregnancy I loved the books and apps and web sites that gave me new information every week. I looked forward to my baby turning one week older so I could find out what new things she was doing and what was happening to her inside me. I like the approach of this book because it does the same—only with Mom!
I’m not pregnant now but would like to have it for Baby #2.

During my pregnancy I devoured so many books. Though, I hadn’t read this one. I don’t know how I’ll be if/when we do baby number two though. Part of me thinks I’ll be a lot more calm and not need the extra info… the other part thinks maybe I’ll get something else out of the new experience and read them all again.
I hadn’t heard of this one and even though I’m no longer pregnant, I’d love to check it out!
Pregnant with my first… need all the help I can get.
