When Transformational Mothering was given to me I was worried because I do not consider myself a Christian and I did not know what to expect. I anticipated being offended in some way but this book is so beautifully written and so inclusive that I felt connected to the community of mothers in a way I had not fully experienced before. This book made me feel like could pray again.

Transformational Mothering did more than touch my soul, it was useful. It is a book that I refer to over and over again for comfort, inspiration or just a good laugh.

What impressed me most was how this first time mother really understood the complexity of her journey as a mother, that she could put it into words and that she could honor her journey and the journey of other mothers. It was empowering to read. This book is a true gift to anyone who is thinking of becoming a mother or who is a mother or who wants a great gift for a mother.

I bought this book and do like it. I just thought it would be less about a religious outlook than it really is. I'm not religious and neither is my family, so I don't really look for religious books. However, this book is great, just not exactly what I was hoping for.

This book is a gift to the world. Transformational Mothering is a wonderful, inspirational and supportive book for all mothers. It contains a series of prayers that will appeal to the religious and non-religious alike. The prayers are a collection of positive affirmations for ourselves and our children as we travel on the journey of Motherhood. Transformational Mothering is a literary hug of support for Moms everywhere. I highly recommend this book.

I was so touched and blessed by this book, I wish I had it when I was going through my first pregancy and my then-infant son's health problems 8 years ago. Throughout pregnancy and as a new mom, I read everything I could find about what to expect, but what was missing from every book was how spititual the journey can be when we become parents -- parenting changes us in amazing and bewildering ways. Lots of times things happen that we can't expect or plan for. I love the gentleness of this book as it addresses the things that can break us -- exhaustion, worry, comparing ourselves to other moms and their journeys, experiencing complications in pregnancy or our baby's health problems. I appreciate Amy Robbins-Wilson's candor and the beautiful simplicity of her prayers, and it is MY prayer that this book will help many, many new mothers or mothers-to-be who need validation and comfort along the crazy journey of becoming a parent. This book is going on my list of books that I will give to every new mom or mom-to-be that I know.

Transformational Mothering teaches us to create while being awake, spiritually, and fully conscious of our staggering vulnerability in life as parents; our need for support; the importance of "faith"; and the pure delight of seeing ourselves proceed gratefully into a more spirit-connected future with and through our children from those moments prior to conception and beyond. With each thought, word, and action, all of us are continually "praying" and thus, creating. Here, the author has graciously modeled how best to pray exposing most every possibility facing a parent. This book is truly a masterful piece of thoughtful and devout understanding of the power of prayer and the wondrous "gift" of being in relationship with our children. A must read for anyone that is planning on being a parent or is a parent. Jim Solo, Father and Grandparent

I was looking for a steady read - it has a lot of prewritten prayers, which is great but many didnt apply to my situation (ie - adoption, miscarriage....). I ended up skipping through a lot of the book.

Where was this book when I was 19 years old and a single mother? Prayers, poetry, affirmations and stories beautifully written and shared from her heart; Amy provides us with a true gift. Transformational Mothering is a 'must have' for every new mother. This book would make a wonderful baby shower gift! As a mother of three, an early childhood educator and an author myself, I LOVE this book and highly recommend you purchase it for yourself and a new mother in your life.

This book is not only for pregnant or new mother's after giving birth. There are also prayers for dealing with the emotional roller coaster that is "trying to conceive" and is for ANY new mother - adoptive or birth. No matter how we became a mother, we go through changes and challenges. While every woman's situation is different, we share a lot of similar emotional hurdles.

I wish I had this book sooner (my daughter is now 9 months old). I think I would have found comfort in Amy's words while we struggled to conceive and during those early days when sleep didn't come easy. Oh, and during those days when we struggled with latching on. Those were days filled with tears and I struggled against losing hope. While we came out successful, her words could have served as comfort.
