Often when women get pregnant they read as many pregnancy and birth related books and articles as they can find. They learn about the size of their baby, birthing positions and how to breastfeed. … And then it stops. Often when I get a client asking me about parenting they haven’t read a parenting book. When I ask why they say they are overwhelmed with the choices. Navigating the many many choices of parenting books can make you feel anxious- every book SOUNDS great on the back, it’s so hard to choose! I have helped you do some of the leg work and picked 10 of the best peaceful parenting books to date. Enjoy.
