This book had me laughing out loud! But it's also full of great advice. I really loved it. I plan to give it as a bridal shower gift even more than a baby shower gift, as it deals with early marriage and the decision whether or not to have children too.

I kept thinking of Erma Bombeck. Loved it!

This book opened my eyes to the joys and struggles of first time parents. I now have a deeper understanding of all the ups and downs my friends with children have gone through. For All Maternity isn't just for newlyweds and expectant parents (though it does make an awesome gift!) It's also a book any single person can read to help them walk in the shoes of their friends and family. You'll come away with renewed awe for the moms in your life!

Emily Pardy is a 30-something writer living in Nashville, Tennessee. As a wife, mother of two, and full-time grad student pursuing her Masters in Marriage & Family Therapy, she completely understands the definition of busy. When she's not writing, she's probably over-thinking her next book or reheating her coffee for the millionth time.
