Mother’s Day is fast approaching, and with the release of the new movie, What to Expect When You’re Expecting, I am reminded of the wonderful memories of reading the book while I was pregnant with my son almost 12 years ago. Gulp and wipe away a tear. Twelve years ago? Of course I read it all over again when I was pregnant with my daughter a couple of years later, (now I need a tissue) but that time was not because I didn’t know what to expect, although every pregnancy is different, but more because I enjoyed the excitement I experienced while reading and learning from the book the first time!
There’s no doubt that the book, What to Expect While You’re Expecting, is a very comforting read while you’re navigating the miraculous changes occurring inside (and outside) of you when carrying and delivering your newborn baby. For those of you that don’t know, that book is part of a series. They don’t just leave you out there by yourself without a clue after you have that baby! No way momma! There are two books that follow, What to Expect The First Year and What to Expect The Second Year. After THAT you’re on your own! :)
Being a photographer of expectant parents and then their newborns and toddlers, I am blissfully involved in the lives of my clients during this wonderfully exciting and equally challenging period of their lives. It makes perfect sense to share information that made life a little easier when my husband and I were experiencing similar events in our lives.
WhatToExpect.com has generously teamed up with me to host a giveaway to celebrate this wonderful book series.
In honor of Mother’s Day, one lucky follower will receive these first three books in this series:
What to Expect When You’re Expecting
What to Expect the First Year
