When author Cecelia Cancellaro became pregnant at the age of
thirty-six, she found herself wanting more than the maternity
clothes and the advice that her friends generously provided. When
she turned to the Internet, she found hundreds of other pregnant
women who all seemed to be in search of the same kinds of
information and reassurance. After her daughter was born, she
realized that it was these women's stories that had sustained and
guided her through the long nine months of her pregnancy. This book
retells the stories she found in her wonderful journey of
"Cecelia Cancellaro has collected the most fascinating accounts
of women's pregnancies, their labors and postpartum experiences.
What those many stories show is that it is really impossible to
predict not only the events leading up to the birth, but the
stories themselves. However, there is one aspect all these stories
share: the euphoria and joy of becoming a parent, the unconditional
love experienced when a mother and a father have climbed the
difficult mountain and have their child in their arms."
-Elisabeth Bing, cofounder of Lamaze International, author of "Six
Practical Lessons for an Easier Childbirth" and "Laughter and
Tears: The Emotional Life of New Mothers"
