The weeks leading up to motherhood are filled with hope, happiness, and some amount of trepidation. After all, your life is about to change in a major way. Pending parenthood can feel like a giant exam that you can't really study for. But the books every woman on the verge of motherhood should read can serve as excellent companions for your journey. Absorbing this advice from childcare experts can put many of your fears to rest.
Of course women have babies every day, but the whole experience is a different thing entirely when it’s happening to you. Feeling nervous and even unprepared is extremely normal. (In fact, it would be kind of weird if you weren't at least a tiny bit nervous.) And these books can give you the insight into parenthood you so desire at this time.
Overall, you can’t learn everything about having a baby from a book. Parenthood is one gig that requires a huge amount of on-the-job training. But you can be as prepared as possible with some help from authors who know babies like no one else. Covering everything from breastfeeding to onesies, these humorous and insightful reads are a perfect way to help countdown to your delivery date.
