Over ten twelve years of growing babies, I’ve written a lot on the subject. Often, I’ve had a mom reach out to me on the blog or in real life for my tips on pregnancy, birth, and more. It got to be a bit cumbersome to send lists of links to those moms, so I decided to put all my tips and thoughts together into a book. It was fun to walk through memory lane, from my thoughts on my earliest pregnancies to my last, and do some extra research and refine all that into something other moms would find helpful.

I also reached out to my good friend Anna Eastland about contributing to the book. We had our last two babies together, often chat about pregnancy, and collaborated a few years ago on Love Rebel: Reclaiming Motherhood. She added a few chapters on important topics that I have no experience with, such as baby loss and mastitis.
