Product Description

Designed to help expectant mothers embrace pregnancy as an opportunity for spiritual growth, A Catholic Mother's Companion to Pregnancy prepares mothers for the trials and joys of pregnancy, childbirth, baptism, and ultimately, motherhood. Each week of pregnancy is paired with a mystery of the Rosary, a personal reflection from Reinhard, advice for living the sacramental life, and a prayer to help the reader grow in faith as she bonds with her unborn child.

Reinhard provides a unique perspective on the Paschal Mystery as it relates to childbirth and teaches mothers how to spiritually prepare for labor and birth; she then guides them through the practical and prayerful steps of preparing for baptism. An author, wife, and mom, Reinhard writes with a down-to-earth voice full of wisdom and compassion from her experience as the mother of three. Foreword by Lisa M. Hendey; Afterword by Danielle Bean
