Inspired by her own pregnancy and birth experience, Hegland takes the reader upon the month-by-month journey traveled by every mother-to-be....The book...combines accurate biological information as it reflects deep understanding of the mother-child bonding that occurs during pregnancy. Included are several old folktales illustrating women's never-ending connection to both past and future. Hegland's rich prose style makes it all a joy to read.-Booklist
