Litfuse Review: Expectant Parents by:Suzanne Hadley Gosselin

 Expectant Parents: Preparing Together for the Journey of Parenthood
About the Book:
Many books focus on prenatal development and the health of a mom-to-be. While "Expectant Parents" does touch on important issues of pregnancy, its core purpose is help expectant parents understand key issues related to the arrival of a new child in the home, offering practical assistance as they prepare themselves for long-term family success.It's often said that babies don't come with an instruction manual. 

This book actually provides parents with information and practical steps for writing their own--as they work to create the kind of home and family they choose to build. This includes strengthening their own marriage relationship, setting plans and expectations for parenthood, increasing communication, and preparing for the new stage of their family life that is just ahead. Ideal for first-time parents, this book would also be helpful for couples wanting to explore and prepare for the emotional, physical, and spiritual life changes that come with the arrival of any new child into the family.

About the Author:
Suzanne Hadley Gosselin is a freelance writer and editor in Colorado who has written for Focus on the Family, Zondervan, Harvest House, and David C Cook. She enjoys coffee, good conversation and spending time with her husband, Kevin, and three children--Josiah, Sadie and Amelia.

My Review:
 Well the big day has arrived and you finally can say that you are expecting a beautiful blessing in your life. But it's not long before there are scary thoughts running through your mind and your hormones are surging. You start to lash out at each other and then that is when you see that your partner and best friend has become the enemy. Expectant Parents, is a book written to counteract all of these feelings and so much more. The author a parents, herself hope to inspire and encourage those expecting through their experiences and advice.

 More than practical information the author offers advice for everything concerning the day of the baby's birth and beyond. This book is designed for first time parents and can be used throughout the pregnancy. The book also has a huge supply of really good information from others. I like that it focuses on the marriage aspect the most. This book could be such a big help to others. I applaud the author for writing such an informative book!
