Présentation de l'éditeur

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.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Preparing Together for the Journey of Parenthood” by Suzanne Hadley Gosselin is a sweet little book that offers soon-to-be paren 2 novembre 2014
Par Momma Frugal - Publié sur Amazon.com
“Expectant Parents; Preparing Together for the Journey of Parenthood” by Suzanne Hadley Gosselin is a sweet little book that offers soon-to-be parents advice on how to make the transition from a married couple to parents. This book does what it sets out to do to its targeted audience, Godly married couples. If,

• “No matter what” your faith in God, (and that of your spouse, as well) is unshakeable
• You plan to be a Stay-at-Home mom
• You have had a perfectly normal time conceiving and a perfectly normal pregnancy
• You consider yourself “middle” to “upper” class
• Your spouse is perfect in every way and works a “Normal” job

Then this book will be a comfort and a help to you. It is filled with sweet stories of how expectant parents had this trial or that, but were ultimately just fine because of their faith in God and His plans. If, however, you:

• Have a non-traditional relationship (or the father is not in the picture)
• You had difficulty conceiving or have had a complicated pregnancy
• You are looking for information regarding the physical and emotional changes going on inside your body each and every week during your pregnancy (the book describes each trimester in one paragraph each)
• You struggle with your faith, or maybe your spouse does
• You are looking for straightforward advice for some serious issues

Then, you might want to consider picking up a different book. “Expectant Parents” gives great advice, don’t get me wrong! How can you discredit, “Give it to God.”? That is of course, the right thing to do. As Christians, we all should be living this daily. However, sometimes things just don’t go according to plan, and as human beings we fall short. Unfortunately, this book does little to offer help or advice if parents who are not able to be so steadfast.

“Expectant Parents” does offer some additional information in the Appendix section all the way in the back of the book. Things like, miscarriage and infant death, adoption, and post partum depression are after thoughts and discussed in a page or two. Again, persons needing to read about these issues are not the author’s target audience, so perhaps, it is better that way.

If you can continue to read through all the romanticized marriage and pregnancy stories to get to chapter 10 of the book, “Roots” then you have made it to the heart of the book, and are getting into some actual helpful information. The author finally talks about different upbringings and scenarios that perhaps more people might be able to relate to.

Overall, “Expectant Parents” does what it sets out to do in providing basic information on how two happily married individuals delve into parenthood. If you are a regular “Focus On The Family” listener, reader, and believer, you will enjoy this book. If you need a bit more, read this book in conjunction with something more in-depth.

Thank you to Propeller Consulting for giving us a copy of this book for our review.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 It’s an unvarnished peek into the lives of numerous couples who share stories of the joy and heartache that accompany the journe 1 octobre 2014
Par J Rogers - Publié sur Amazon.com
Expectant Parents is more than a how-to guide for new parents, though it certainly includes plenty of practical advice. It’s an unvarnished peek into the lives of numerous couples who share stories of the joy and heartache that accompany the journey towards parenthood. Those stories include accounts of unplanned pregnancies, miscarriages, financial decisions, marital struggles, hormone changes, and postpartum muffin-tops, to name a few.

I’m a little embarrassed to admit it, but a number of times, I actually got choked up reading Expectant Parents and had to blink away tears while standing next to a bunch of strangers on the metro. I also laughed out loud reading some of the awkward stories of pregnancy and new parenthood. And I think the reason I found myself responding to the book so strongly – despite the fact that I’m a 35-year-old man whose wife isn’t even pregnant – is because I love raw, vulnerable stories.

I mean, I’m not particularly interested in the topic of postpartum depression, but I was riveted by the story of Jerusha, who nearly killed herself six months after having a baby. And although it’s hard for me to imagine being a stay-at-home dad, I was intrigued Jessica and Mike’s story of how that made sense to them. Furthermore, in my own search for encouragement as a man who was raised by a single mom, I was touched by the story of Leon, who grew up without his father but went on to get married and wrestle through the process of becoming a good dad to his eight girls. Basically, the book is effective because it takes all the various crucibles of bringing a child into the world and clearly works them into a living context that any new mom or dad can appreciate.

Maybe I don’t have a lot of experience reading parenting books, but nonetheless, I know a good book when I read one; and this is definitely one I’ll be getting for my friends who are or who want to be expectant parents.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 WONDERFUL Discussion Guide for Soon-to-be-Parents 27 octobre 2014
Par The Forgiven Former Feminist - Publié sur Amazon.com
This book is a very practical guide to help soon-to-be-parents tackle the difficult topics relevant to pregnancy. While it only has 12 chapters, Expectant Parents does a great job of bringing up issues that first time parents may not know they need to discuss. The topics include everything from cravings and body issues to pregnancy fears and what life will look like when you bring your new baby home. The chapters are neatly written and well organized. Appendix I and II both have excellent resources listed as well. Gosselin does an excellent job of handling potentially awkward and difficult topics with grace and poise.

That is my official review, here are my personal thoughts. Since my husband and I are expecting our first child this November we absolutely loved going through this book together. Throughout the duration of my pregnancy I have read countless parenting books. Many of them were decent, a few were good and one or two were bad. Expectant Parents was a phenomenal book for my husband and I to read together. I read through Expectant Parents first and made notes on the things that caught my attention. I then gave the book to my very masculine husband. He also enjoyed the way that Gosselin brought various subjects to our attention. We both enjoyed working through the list of five to eight questions at the end of each of the chapters. I loved that Gosselin incorporated more than just the "oh my gosh there is a baby on the way" idea and moved in to a more focused sphere of what intentional and godly parenting should be.

Overall, I loved Expectant Parents. I believe that this book would make an excellent baby shower gift for expecting parents. Although this book isn't set up as a true study I think that it could also be a great book to go over in a group setting. I give Expectant Parents a solid A+ and I recommend it for any and all new parents.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 so good.. 3 octobre 2014
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Oh, if only Austin and I had read this book. I'm only on page 43. I think I've teared up at least 8 times already, including in the introduction, because it all rings so very true. Such lighthearted, upbeat, easy-to-read wisdom in here! So far, so good...So INCREDIBLY good!
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Reading this book was like receiving a comforting embrace midway through a white-knuckled drive ... 2 janvier 2015
Par Felicia - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Expectant Parents, written by Suzanne Hadley Gosselin, is a how-to manual for the hearts of new parents. In her book, she covers mom and dad’s individual roles, career decisions, emotions, community, family background and other essential topics. It’s not so much a reference manual as a gentle discussion with a friend of all the new challenges and blessings that come with a new little one. Suzanne shares a variety of both positive and negative experiences from people at different stages in the journey. She strongly supports the belief that there are no set ways/methods for each family. Rather each couple needs to seek out the Lord’s leading for their own family, and this may not be the same as their upbringing or of the cultural norm.
Reading this book was like receiving a comforting embrace midway through a white-knuckled drive down a foggy road. I about cried tears of joy as I read her chapters and realized……I was normal. It was all going to be OK! I remember excitedly telling my husband that “the book said it’s going to be OK! It said that I’m normal and it’s going to all be fine!” My husband and I are expecting our first child next summer, and thus the first couple months of pregnancy were filled with fears, weariness, sickness, and talk over the future. Remember in Luke, where Mary went to visit Elizabeth after finding out she was ‘with child’? How comforting Elizabeth’s words and embrace must have felt to a girl who had just obediently accepted a social outcast role in raising her first child, God’s Son! As Mary heard Elizabeth’s words, she must have thought, “It’s OK! I’m not alone! It’s going to be OK.” As I read through that chapter with new eyes this Christmas, I connected with her. I too, needed someone to tell me it was OK, and that the emotions and fears I had were normal. I would recommend this book for anyone expecting their first child. It is a good reminder to seek the Lord in each area of this new adventure, and it also provides good discussion between couples over the expectations each one has for delivery through raising a family.
I received a complementary copy of this book for review purposes from Tyndale House Publishers.
