About the Author

Erin Macpherson is a mom of three who never does anything halfway. When she discovered she was pregnant she decided to write about it, and then kept writing. A former staff writer and editor for Nickelodeon, Erin how entertains parents on her personal blog as well as through freelance magazine articles devotionals and speaking. She wants to come beside her readers not only as a confidante and Christian sister but also as a best girlfriend who understands what daily life is all about.

My Thoughts

Not that long ago pregnancy was always thought of as something perfect. If a soon to be mother complained about her pain she was quickly scolded by those around her for not loving her child enough, or not wanting a baby. Lately though there has been a trend to actually express negative feelings and this book goes right along with that, and offers helpful tips to make it less so.
