Preparing for Parenthood: 55 Essential Conversations for Couples Becoming Families (Paperback)
Couples often spend surprisingly little time getting ready for the huge rite of passage of parenting. During pregnancy, they may paint the nursery, but neglect discussing how their roles may change. They may have a car seat ready, but not a will. The first of its kind, this interactive book provides couples with 55 essential conversation-starters and action items to complete while expecting their baby, using their own beliefs and values. They'll learn the biggest concerns for new parents, find their unique strengths as a couple, and develop greater confidence in the transition to becoming parents. Parenting is simultaneously heart-opening and heart-wrenching, humbling and humorous, joyful and overwhelming. But this small and indispensable book will help expectant and new parents alleviate stress and answer some of the biggest questions they'll want to address before their baby arrives.
