A New Life
is a celebration of the miracle of pregnancy. As a mother to be, your entire body and soul are changing dramatically. From the joys of hearing you baby’s heartbeat and feeling the first flutters of movement within to the inevitable anxieties of impending parenthood, this daily reader will help reassure you through your pregnancy’s ups and downs.

This daily companion guides you through the entire growth process from concept to due date–with a section on how to manage if you are overdue–and helps you embrace the coming months with grace and serenity. The practical suggestions and words of wisdom in A New Life help you to accept your feelings, let go your worries and fears, and learn to trust your inner voice. Each day you will find an affirmation to comfort you and to strengthen your spirit, as well as a space each month to record your feelings and physical changes. The emphasis is on you emotional well-being and on understanding the transformation taking place within you so that when your newborn makes his or her appearance, you will be ready for your new life together.
