What to Expect When You're Expecting 3-Book Giveaway [CLOSED]

Raise your hand if you've read What to Expect When You're Expecting. The first thing I did when I found out I was pregnant was buy the book. I was absolutely clueless about pregnancy and childbirth! And I greatly fear the unknown. The title delivered its promise: the book gave me the basic facts I needed to lay a good foundation of knowledge that I built upon while making my birth plan.

You can imagine my excitement when their partnership director contacted me asking me if I would like to work with WhatToExpect.com, the website associated with the book. He sent me What to Expect When You're Expecting, What to Expect the First Year, and What to Expect the Second Year to review and is giving away sets of those 3 books to 2 lucky winners!


Smiles
*Extremely informative. Every question you can think of is answered!
*Sequenced so you can read what you need to at each stage of pregnancy and childhood, allowing you to take each section at a time instead of feeling you need to read the whole book at once.
*Includes indexes for easily finding answers you need right now.
*Written in a tone informal enough to feel like you are conversing with another mother yet authoritative enough that you feel confident in trusting the content.

Frowns
*Although the authors try to be unbiased and merely factual with certain controversial subjects, it is easy to tell which side they are promoting. So these books are best for mainstream moms or new mothers who haven't formed any parenting opinions yet. However, the authors frequently repeat something I strongly believe: only you know what is best for you and your baby, and a choice is right if it feels right to you.
*Repetitive: many questions are answered more than once.

Two of you lucky readers will win a set of the 3 What to Expect books! Perfect for you new mothers or to give as baby shower gifts.

The books would be for me! I will probably purchase them anyways if I don't win because, I am stocking up on baby books and Oscar are I are starting our pre-conception learning. I will finally buy the no-cry sleep solution by Elizabeth Pantley as well. :) It's been on my book list for awhile.

Thanks for hosting the giveaway!

I learned that the new health care law " requires companies with more than 50 employees to provide a nursing mom with a clean, private place to pump for up to one year after the birth of her child — and (thankfully) restrooms don’t count."

Gale said...

This book will be for my sister-in-law, who is expecting her first. I'd just give her my copy but already gave that to someone else. (My little ones are now all over 4).

The books would be for me, because although I am not currently expecting, I plan on having children in the future. I'm soon-to-be-married and I feel that reading these books would help prepare me for what to, well, expect. I've also heard good things about the books.
