Summary

Are you nervous about delivering a baby for the first time? Are you anxious and confused about the changes happening to your body? Then you need to keep reading...

As soon as a few weeks after conception, the pregnant body sees drastic changes. Due to dramatic increases in progesterone, estrogen, and other hormones, women can experience a range of shocking symptoms: hair will become thicker and grow in new areas, bones soften, lung capacity increases, the heart enlarges, and much more. For first-time mothers, learning to differentiate between what’s expected and what’s abnormal can cause a large amount of needless stress, leaving less time to think about what really matters.

In First Time Mom, you’ll discover:

  • The exact formula for a healthy, joyous pregnancy. (By adopting these lifestyle changes, you can ensure a smooth and stress-free nine months ahead!) 
  • Everything you can expect from each trimester and beyond.
  • The warning symptoms that you should never ignore.
  • Pregnancy secrets that no one ever tells you about.
  • Ten crucial facts about newborns that all parents must be aware of.
  • The truth about what to expect in the delivery room.
  • Seven important pieces of advice that all first-time moms must know. (Abiding by these tips are a sure path to a happy newborn and mom!)

And much, much more...
 

As a free bonus, you’ll also receive a free chapter from The Mindful Path to Self Compassion because we truly believe that every baby is much happier when mom has learned to be kind to herself.

Even if you are clueless about pregnancy, or constantly feel like you don’t know what you’re doing, the extensive research behind this guide can ensure you’ll cultivate unwavering confidence during this important time and learn all the vital information needed to nurture a happy, healthy baby, paving your way to a promising and soul-enriching motherhood.

By relying on the expert research behind this guide, you'll learn exactly what symptoms to expect during each stage of your pregnancy, what they mean, and all the expert tricks to ease any difficulty that arises with your body or your baby.

If you want to access this advanced information only known to experienced mothers and midwives, then you should listen to this audiobook!

This is the pregnancy audiobook

This is the pregnancy audiobook that expecting moms need - it recommends apps and suggests fun ways to share milestones on social media. It's an old-fashioned pregnancy audiobook with modern social media sensibility.

I think it would make a very nice gift for anyone

I think it would make a very nice gift for any expectant mom who enjoys writing. It's easy to write in, but I do worry that the cover won't be durable over decades unless it is very well cared for. That's my only reservation about the journal.

First time pregnancy are very special.

First time pregnancy are very special. It’s worthwhile to take the time and effort to document the events that take place during this time. The First-Time Mom's Pregnancy Journal is an excellent way to do this. It breaks the pregnancy time down by trimester and month making it easier to record notable events by their timeline. The book is well done

Good for first time mothers.

This book is wonderful. It gives spaces to fill in reflections and observations during each step of your pregnancy. It gives tips on self-care and ideas for preparing for baby that are spread throughout 9 months. It even gives space to track your prenatal appointments! I absolutely love this
