I'm adding this paragraph after reading the other reviews on the site here: I did NOT receive this book as a gift from the author; I am NOT giving a review because the author asked me to. I am familiar with the concept of Polyamory, and this book was written for those who are already polyamorous (or at least sympathetic to the idea). If you come to this book looking for a basic primer on polyamory, you will be unsatisfied -- but for the purpose of laying out the joys and jolts of choosing new-parenthood within a multi-partner life? This is an AWESOME book.
What she does give you is a lot of reflective questions for yourself and to ask your partner(s). And they're good questions, with a variety of scenarios to help you think about things you may not think about yourself. I would definitely recommend this book to other non-traditional families if there's any chance of a pregnancy occurring within the relationship(s).
The only thing I would perhaps recommend is maybe more discussion on already existing children. But then again, this is focusing on pregnancy and polyamory, not parenting within polyamory.
I can't wait until the author releases her next book!
*I was gifted a copy of this book by the author for exchange for an honest review*
I feel this book(Guide) was well written as far as very clearly explains how to hand the pregnancy in a Polyamory relationship. But what I don't really understand is(I ask these questions without prejudice or judgment) as this type of Lifestyle I have recently just heard about so I have no educated opinion.
1.What would the benefit to being in a Polyamory relationship?
2.How do you keep feels from interfering?
Now I would love to read a book that explains and gives great details as to a Polyamory relationship, as to then I may have a better understanding of the Pregnancy part that could arise.
I am very glad I had an opportunity to read this guide and learn about this type of lifestyle.
