Publisher's Summary

More than 4,000,000 babies are born in the United States every year, each the culmination of a remarkable odyssey. For expectant mothers, pregnancy is a time of discovery, change, and inspiration. Nine Glorious Months is the perfect place for every mother-to-be to record her musings, experiences, and heartfelt wishes.

For each day, author Michelle Leclaire O'Neill includes a brief description of fetal development and suggests loving meditations to support both mother and child. Her gentle and inspiring tone encourages the bond between mother and baby with inscriptions such as: Week 5, Sunday. Today I begin to imagine you. Your backbone is forming . . .

I hope I am able to give you the emotional support to continue to develop and to one day stand up for what you believe in.

Also included are quotations from Rumi, Shakespeare, Joyce, Ogden Nash, May Sarton, Nikki Giovanni, and many other inspiring voices. There are places on each page for the mother to record her innermost feelings. Each day there is a special place reserved for a note to the baby.

Beautifully crafted and carefully illustrated in two colors, Nine Glorious Months will be a cherished keepsake for both mother and child.

    Story
    "Not meant to be an audiobook"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone who had an actual paper book in front of them. This was meant to be a journal, not a listen.


    Has Nine Glorious Months turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Michelle Leclaire O'Neill’s performances?

    Sure


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment. There were a couple of neat comments about pregnancy, and then she says "My concerns are..." where the reader is obviously meant to write down their own thoughts.

    I don't generally buy audiobooks that want me to write stuff down in a book I don't have.


    Any additional comments?

    Had I been more aware of the structure of the book, I would have purchased it with paper attached instead of sound.
