This comprehensive guide is packed with information that every newly pregnant Christian mama needs—including:
- help for pregnancy insomnia, morning sickness, weight gain and more
- advice on how to maintain a godly attitude and outlook during pregnancy—even when you're feeling anything but godly
- what to expect from doctor check-ups, your encounters with the scale and labor and delivery
- tips on how to survive food cravings, aversions, and even dreaded pregnancy exercise
- healthy eating advice for pregnancy that doesn't outright ban ice cream sundaes

There is nothing more exciting and frightening than pregnancy and moms to be will find no shortage of advice. The Christian Mama's Guide to Having a Baby is a rather unique approach to offering pregnancy advice. The book presents advice that is sure to make any mom to be smile throughout her pregnancy. I loved the first trimester wardrobe tricks in Chapter 1. Leggings, yoga pants and so many secrets to looking great even when you're not feeling so hot.
The Time Out for Mom sections scattered throughout the book offered great scripture and a brief devotional and was one of my fave sections. The Christian Mama's Guide to Having a Baby is witty, fun and just like talking with a big sister and the pregnancy resources found in Chapter 15 were hands down one of the most creative takes on pregnancy I've ever read. The chapter included a few pages highlighting the Bible as a resource. Funny when you think about it, but amazingly true once you read it. I could share some of my other fave pregnancy resources but why when you can check out The Christian Mama's Guide to Having a Baby for yourself or for the mom to be in your life.
The Christian Mama's Guide to Having a Baby is refreshing and moms-to-be will smile as MacPherson presents a fresh take on pregnancy. Although it may appear comical and light-hearted, The Christian Mama's Guide to Having a Baby offers some serious tips sure to help guide the mom-to-be understand the late night cravings, morning/afternoon/evening sickness, and all the other "joys" of pregnancy.
The Christian Mama's Guide to Having a Baby would make a great baby shower gift for a new mom or a mom-to-be.
The Christian Mama's Guide to Having a Baby is available at bookstore nationally and also on Amazon . I am looking forward to checking out the other books in the Christian Mama's Guide series and hope to share my thoughts with you on them as well.
