newly pregnant women believe mothering begins after the baby is born.
As a result, their pregnancy is spent preparing the baby’s room, buying a
crib, and even attending childbirth classes. All of these activities
are valuable and help to prepare for this new life, but what about
before the baby is born?
The Wonder Within You takes you
on a journey that weaves scientific studies, dozens of interviews with
mothers, and storytelling into a fascinating account of life inside the
womb. An obstetrician loads each chapter with advice. A sonographer
gives incredible 3 and 4-D snapshots (available online) and stories from
her 25 years of watching babies grow in utero. Each chapter includes
week-by-week developmental information, findings from recent neonatal
studies, and even nutritional advice all designed to nurture a healthy
baby. The Wonder Within You also serves as a weekly journal for
expectant mothers to chronicle her own baby’s journey to life outside
the womb. It’s a keepsake baby book that begins before birth.
The Wonder Within You
will help moms meet the real needs of the growing pre-born baby.
Sonograms, dietary and medical advice, and stories from experienced moms
are combined to encourage 40 weeks of prenatal parenting designed with a
joy for the journey in mind. 288 pages
