From the Inside Flap
Halfway through her own pregnancy, author Jessica Wolstenholm realized that although she rushed to every book sitting on her bookshelf each time she encountered a question or a scary symptom, she found that the information there, while accurate, usually led to further questions or deeper fear, without the comfort she needed. "If you are experiencing cramping," the book would explain, "it is very normal. However, you could be experiencing a miscarriage so consult your physician." Fortunately for Jessica, she had the benefit of Dr. Heather Rupe, a Christian OB who answered every question with utmost honesty and accuracy, yet always included assurance that God was involved in every moment.
Not all women have the benefit of a Christian OB, but they can have the next best thing in The Pregnancy Companion. This valuable book contains the same quality medical information as any "expecting" book on the market, infused with thought-provoking and spiritual messages. Organized in chapters that follow an expectant mother's OB appointment schedule, this unique resource will equip them for a faith-filled journey through an informed and joyful pregnancy.

Both authors are very candid about their own journeys to motherhood, including miscarriage, infertility and adoption. I loved that I was hearing from "real women" who had been through this and weren't afraid to share their stories.
The book is divided into chapters that deal with each month of pregnancy. There is a section written by Dr. Rupe that concerns the physical aspects of one's pregnancy and that is followed by some practical information and advice for your emotional wellbeing from Jessica Wolstenholm.
Just about every concern is addressed in some form or fashion as well as just plain helpful advice like where to get the best deal on baby items. I loved how thorough it was without being completely overwhelming.
I appreciated their approach to sharing their faith throughout the book. It was very encouraging without being religious or "preachy". I would feel comfortable handing this book to any of my friends and acquaintances and highly recommend it for those of you who are thinking about entering this stage of life!
