The perfect companion to your pregnancy experience, this beautiful book is designed to become a keepsake you and your child will treasure forever.
Many 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.
This is an outstanding book. Not only a week-by-week development (more thorough and personal than other books), but a journal, nutritional guide, 3D/4D ultrasound picture book. The QR codes that link to your phone for videos is so awesome. This is truly a unique way to bond with baby like nothing I've seen before. It's so personal. A great way to cherish every pregnancy and keep memories. I recommend it for a gift for yourself or everyone you know who's expecting!
