For many Christian couples, it is important to include spirituality during their pregnancy and birth. These books are a good place to start.
Newborn Care Bookshelf:
These are some of our favorite books for postpartum and newborn care and breastfeeding support.
Recommendations for Infant Care:
Somehow with pregnancy, expectant mothers find they have a new gene – the worry gene. These books will help you to become more confident and learn to trust your mother instinct. They may even help quiet the worry gene just a little.
Recommendations for Breastfeeding:
Who ever said breastfeeding was “natural”? It can be challenging, but also rewarding for mother and baby in ways far beyond food. Here are some books that can help. Also, local IBCLC’s and La Leche League are invaluable resources on the ground.
Recommendations for Sleeping:
New parents wonder if they will ever sleep again. Be assured that while it may look different than before, you will! These books are full of great and practical advice.
We would love to hear of books that have been helpful to you!
