Publisher's Summary

Practical, reassuring, and beautifully written, A Is for Advice provides a brief and compelling reflection on pregnancy, birth, and the early postpartum period for expectant mothers of all kinds - whether you prefer a water birth at home or a scheduled C-section in a hospital, whether you believe in painkillers or an all-natural labor, breast milk or formula, this audiobook speaks to you and your pregnancy. 

Authored in the approachable and friendly tone of a best-friend blogger but informed by the insight of a registered midwife, A Is for Advice seeks to comfort and inspire, providing realistic and soothing advice at a time when most women desperately seek out information. 

Through 26 lesson/letters of the alphabet (C is for control; F is for fear; W is for water), A Is for Advice offers practical and emotional insights into the often overwhelming transition to motherhood. Using a combination of humor, story-telling, research distillation, and personal reflection, A Is for Advice speaks to concerns common to all women as they approach birth and motherhood. Eschewing the “birth wars” for a women-centered, feminist perspective, A Is for Advice does not argue for any one type of birth experience but rather empowers each woman to be her own advocate. 

If the audiobook could be summed up in one line, it would be, simply, “be gentle with yourself.” Listen to it start to finish or in the short bursts available to an expecting mom (each letter stands alone). This audiobook offers a compelling call for well-informed, judgment-free, and forgiving birthing and mothering and is the ultimate baby-shower gift for your best friend, sister, or daughter.
