Preparing for Motherhood

Preparing for Motherhood : The Inside Scoop on Your New Job

A useful little book that I got for the expecting mothers in our church, it is a useful tool as a pastor to use and pre-birth counseling.  It is short and readable and great to prompt discussion.  I appreciated the author’s emphasis on praying before the baby arrives.  The main emphasis of the book is actually on praying but it touches on different prayers for the parents-to-be and the baby.  Has practical wisdom here and there but always a reminder to the reader that the primary concern for a new parent for their child ought to be spiritual.  How I used it in our church is to have the couple highlight two or three things from it so that we can share about what they learn and also the couple’s discussion generated from the book.  A helpful resource.
