When Motherly online community asked what today's mothers wanted in a pregnancy book, your response came through loud and clear. You want to learn about your options without being preached to. To be informed about pitfalls without judgment or scare tactics. You were looking for a book that hadn't been written: a mama-centered guide that doesn't just focus on your baby's needs, but honors and coaches you through this profound life change.
That's why Diana Spalding and the Motherly team created The Motherly Guide to Becoming Mama. In this illustrated resource, you'll find guidance to support you every step of the way - through pre-conception planning, the week-by-week experience of pregnancy, childbirth, and the often-ignored "fourth trimester" of the postpartum period. From maternity leave planning to relationship reflections, nutrition support to fitness recommendations, this book will help you feel confident and inspired through one of the greatest transformations of your life.
