Embrace: A Pregnancy Journal
Contributor(s): McClure, Nikki (Author)

Pregnancy is an adventure like no other; a time of tremendous physical and emotional change for a mother-to-be. Filled with hopes and dreams, it's also a time during which women make plans, lists, and important decisions -- there is much to "embrace." Many women, especially first-time mothers, want a place to record this singular time in their lives. Nikki McClure, a mother herself, inspires with her beautiful artwork, and reassures with her comforting voice in this journal which accompanies a mother-to-be through her nine months of pregnancy and her baby's birth. There is space to record her hopes and wishes for her baby, as well as the big moments of the pregnancy (how she learned she was pregnant, how she shared the news), as well as space to make lists (baby names!), and room for keepsakes (ultrasound photos!). The journal is very much like McClure's popular book, "The First 1,000 Days, " a journal for recording the milestones and small but precious moments of a child's first three years of life. "Embrace" inspires joy, trust, love, and courage in moms-to-be, and is a perfect prequel to "The First 1,000 Days."
