For expectant and new mothers, Celebrating Motherhood is a beautiful companion for every stage of motherhood from anticipation to embrace. This moving compilation of contemporary essays, literary excerpts, ancient wisdom, ritual, and image presents motherhood as a life-transforming adventure to be savored and treasured.

B. White, Ursula LeGuin, Mary Wollstonecraft, the Dalai Lama, Simone De Beauvoir, and many others. Celebrating Motherhood gathers folklore, birth stories, naming customs, and spiritual guidance for first- or fifth-time mothers. An exquisitely illustrated celebration of life, filled with comfort and joy, this book is an original insight into the sacred journey of motherhood. The perfect gift!
