Best Resources for Pregnant and New Moms


Awesome! Congratulations on your new little person!!!

I remember the excitement (Wheeeeeeeeeeeee! This is really happening!!), the uncertainty (“what in the world have I gotten myself into?” and “what in the world is all this gear?”) … and the voracious appetite for ideas and information.

To help, I’ve pulled together my favorite resources for you:

    Perfect timing! We just found out we’re expecting our precious baby #2. I’m signed up for the monthly newsletter but I’ve searched my inbox and haven’t found an email for your book. Is it a separate email or is it a link in the newsletters that I’m missing? I’d love to read it!
