Our New Pregnancy Book: A Gift From Moms To Moms

Beginner’s Guide to Growing Baby

Happy Belated Mother’s Day everyone! I hope you all had good days…whether you have one child or ten, you deserve wonderful things! It’s a big, full-time job nurturing life.

My mom blogger buddy Bonnie Way and I have written a book on pregnancy, birthing and early days with a newborn and are offering it free this week until Thursday on Amazon kindle. With 14 kids between us both, we have plenty of experience, and hope our tips, experiences, and birth stories can help support you on your journey to motherhood!

You don’t need a Kindle device to read it—you can get the free Kindle app on your phone, iPad or tablet as well. Here’s the link:

Beginners guide to growing baby: tips to help you through all four trimesters

You may wonder why we say tips for all four trimesters, instead of three, but this is not a typo! During the first three months of a baby’s life, they are still so completely dependent on their mothers to keep them alive, safe and secure. There is nowhere my nine week old son prefers to be, than snuggling on my chest, sleeping to the drum of my heartbeat.

At the same time, a mother’s health and happiness depends a lot on her baby. If he is nursing well, sleeping well, and generally content, so will she be. That means her snacking lots to keep up her energy for nursing, eating well, and napping with the little one, because newborn days are pretty exhausting—but with gentle care—happy baby, happy mama. This is why we call it the fourth trimester…not so much a time to rush into getting “back to normal,” but a time to move slowly while you continue to nurture fragile new life, grow into this new role of being a mom, and find the rhythm and support you need as well.

Huge hugs to all my fellow mamas! I hope you enjoy reading our birth stories!

      Congratulations Anna!! What an endeavor for you and Bonnie, and growing a baby at the same time to boot. God bless you and your beautiful family. We miss our mom’s group time with you folks.

      1. Thanks, Cristina! Yeah, it’s been a big project, and a long time in the making, so we are happy to finally have it ready to share! Miss seeing you all as well!
        Many of the chapters include things we would have discussed in person at mom’s group, so since we can’t yet physically be together, it nice to have a way to pass on our experience and encouragement to other mama’s! 🥰


  1. Well done! What an achievement! I love the idea of ‘four trimesters’. Those early days with baby are a time of such vulnerability. There’s far too much pressure on new mums to ‘bounce back’ and meet milestones. This book looks great!

    1. Thanks, Katie! Means a lot coming from a mama of multiples like you! If you’d ever like to review it, I can try to find a way to throw it across the world to you! 😘
      Hope you’re keeping well and writing lots!
