Format: Paperback
What I first noticed about this book was the intriguing title...intriguing to me as a father of two young ones. My original expectations when I opened it did not live up to the very reality of the book itself. I guess I'm cynical because so many books dealing in the arena of psychology, and especially dream analysis, seem to be either arcane and unreadable for the layman like me, or annoyingly trendy and superficial psychobabble. THIS BOOK HAS NONE OF THOSE SHORTCOMINGS!
What Ms. Paris has written here is a thoughtful, sensitive, profoundly insightful book about the confounding and sublime experience presented by a woman's inner consciousness as new life grows, and she prepares to meet the new physical, emotional, and psychological challenges of birth and parenthood.
I wish my wife and I could have read it during both of her pregnancies. We each tackled sometimes funny, sometimes scary dreams we could make no sense of in terms of the impending events. It was a wild ride, often surreal and hilarious, occasionally unsettling. We didn't have a clue.
Had I read this, I think I could have been a more effective support to my partner in some of those times. Paris' intelligent presentation and analysis give meaning and context to the dreams themselves; and her gentle, authoritative suggestions of ways to prepare for and to respond to the dreams could be a blessing for any parent-to-be.
We've loved reading it, even some years after the fact of those births. With humor and insight, she's given us new and worthwhile understanding of our own path to getting here as parents. In clear, well-written, accesible language, it makes the journey to joy even more of a celebration. We're sending it to all our new or about-to-be-parent friends.

Format: Paperback
As pregnant women and mothers, we are force fed consumerism as we give birth to the newest generation of the American consumer--we must stop and tune into our souls, our children's future and our own hearts. Ms. Paris' book provides this much needed stop sign in a busy world. Motherhood needs to be acknowledged for the spiritual transformation that it is, and not as the ultimate ride down the birth canal into a material world. Ms. Paris' book offers insights and fresh perspective into the dream world that we cross into when we become mothers. It is soul food in a material world. Forego the "What booties to buy" book and buy this book instead. It will change your dreams, your future and your child's entry into its conscious dream--LIFE. Also a wonderful chapter on men and fathers to be--who are equally as important at every stage of a child's life.

Format: Paperback
As I opened this book, I wondered whether I would be disappointed by yet another author who pushes aside the possibility of pre-birth communication. I have read books on the dreams of pregnancy that speak of symbols, wish fulfillment, and the mind's tendency to sift through possible outcomes. It takes courage to assert that some dreams may be genuine communications from the soul of the unborn child. Raina M. Paris has that courage. This is a wonderfully satisfying book, written with the touch of a poet and full of common sense. There are rich chapters devoted to both the mother's and father's experiences, exercises to increase dream awareness, and an insightful glossary of common dream symbols as they pertain to pregnancy. One of the most delightful aspects of Paris's style is the way she accepts premonitory dreams as entirely natural events, "mysteriously ordinary, like life." This is the approach I prefer in dealing with all channels of pre-birth communication.

Format: Paperback
Ms. Paris offers tremendous depth and insight into to the miraculous world of pregnancy by delving into the dreamworld of parents and their yet-unborn children. The book is a joy to read, and its message comes through with grace and reverence for the beauty of Life. I wish this book had been available when I was pregnant with my son (who is now thirteen) because I would have been able to decipher some of the nightmares I had just before he was born. I wouldn't have been so scared of motherhood. I always joke to my friends how I wished God would have made a how-to manual that comes out with the baby . The Mother-To-Be Dream Book is the closest thing to understanding the unbreakable psychic bond between parents and their children and bringing into the light the unconscious in family dynamics. I recommend this book to everyone, even if you're not pregnant. It is a reminder of the oneness of all of Life, of how inter-connected we are ...And to those of you who so generously shared your most intimate dreams with Ms. Paris, thank you for your candor. This book is truly a gift to the world. Like a meditation. I felt safe and nurtured by the last page.

Format: Paperback
This is a warm and wise book, lovingly written, on the myriad and wonderful ways that soul moves in the lives of those chosen to give birth. It offers sure and steady counsel for the unfolding of an inner process which might otherwise seem bewildering and overwhelming. Ms.Paris writes straight from the heart, with a sure knowledge of her subject. A must for all prospective mothers-to-be, and for their mates as well.
