This book by our podcast episode guest is a great guide to having more kids and even addresses the emotional concerns of adding children to your home.
This is a comprehensive resource for families needing to understand fertility to either concieve or avoid conception. It’s definitely your first stop in the journey of establishing your family and growing it over time.
This book recommended by our guest is a wonderful way to prepare your child(ren) for when baby is being born and what to expect during mom’s pregnancy and her childbirth experience.
With our second child, we had a homebirth and maybe you’re looking at a similar experience. In this instance, these are my favorite two books (This one and the one below) that help an older child know what to expect when baby will be born inside the house that they’re in too!
Because many times midwives come to your home or are a more intimate setting with family, this book is a great way to accimlate your child to the experience of the midwife being around and delivering the baby.
Our family enjoyed the I’m a big sister version to help our daughter understand the idea that not only was a baby coming, but also that she had an important roll in the baby that would soon be in our lives.
