الكتاب ده يعد من أعظم الكتب اللي قريتها في يوم، ساعدني نفسيا بطريقة كبيرة، وأعتقد إني عمري ما هاملّ منه، أمهات حقيقية بتحكي عن مشاعر ولحظات حقيقية، بطريقة تلمّس جدا مع كل من مرت بتجربة مشابهة وهي "تجربة الأمومة" ، أنا عادة مش باعرف اقرا بالإنجليزي، الكتاب ده كان استثناء، قعدت اقرا فيه كتير جدا، لإني لما حسيت إني قربت اخلصه بسرعة حسيت إنه لأ عايزاه يفضل معايا بشكل أطول.

أنا هافضل ممتنة للكتاب ده بشكل كبير جدا، وبانصح بيه كل أم لسة والدة قريب ومحتاجة الحضن والتفهم اللي مش لقياهم حواليها.

Awesome book. After read this book I realize that it's not that easy to become a mother. The tips in this book may help us preparing ourself to become a mother.
After read this book I really want to be a mother. Having someone to whom I will give my unconditional love and my chest will be my son/daughter they can cry on.

Some friends of mine said this book is just too much. An exaggerating version of everything. But when I read this book page by page, I found it gives me a new perspective and a little glitch of what a soon to be me mommy like me will face once the baby is born

very inspiring...ngga nyangka ternyata menjadi ibu baru tak seindah yang dibayangkan. buku ini banyak memberikan saya gambaran akan seorang new mom. memang ikhlas adalah segalanya. banyak cerita sedih dan gembira, tapi pada intinya, menjadi seorang new mom berarti mencurahkan kasih sayang dan segalanya

This was a cute book for a new mom or pregnant woman when you don't have much time to really sit down and read, so it took me awhile to finish only because I was reading 2 or 3 stories at a time, in the middle of a hectic schedule. I enjoyed many of the stories and of course they were uplifting.

Love the chicken soup series and this addition was no different. I loved it with all my heart I think it is an amazing book that would be a great baby shower gift. The inspiration just makes me want to hold my son and kiss his toes all day long.

This collection of stories is very touching and sometime humorous. Easy to read as each story is a page or 3 long. I only cried 3 times while reading it. Not bad considering the pregnancy hormones or in full force.

I recently received this as a gift and read a little bit everyday. It brought alot of tears to my eyes--as I am quite emotional these pregnancy days. I especially liked the husband section!

way too sappy for a hormonal pregnant lady or new mom. the three page stories were ideal for new mom attention span.
