    This review was written for The Christian Mama's Guide to Having a Baby.
    You've seen them, those chatty ‘girlfriends-guide-to-having-a-baby' type books. But you've wondered - are these books going to be unnecessarily crude? Raunchy? Worse? Well, Erin MacPherson has written a similarly light-hearted guide to pregnancy entitled The Christian Mama's Guide to Having a Baby.

    Laugh-out-loud funny, MacPherson tackles the nitty-gritties of pregnancy in chronological order while providing the much-needed levity every pregnant mama needs to hang in there! Bonus sections include thoughts and advice to husbands from husbands who've been there (I loved this part!) Like many Guideposts titles, the faith emphasis isn't particularly strong in this title, but the author does acknowledge the difficulties pregnant moms face maintaining a godly attitude. She often directs moms towards their Creator as a source of support during the difficulties pregnancy can bring.

    I enjoyed the fact that MacPherson does attempt to include some coverage of alternative caregivers such as midwives, birthing locations such as birth centers etc. although she hasn't personally experienced them. Having given birth at home four times I found her take on the medical aspects of pre-natal care and delivery to be fairly traditional and at times unfairly skewed in favor of medicated hospital births (she warns about the risks of preventable injuries that have occurred in home births, but what of all the common, preventable negative outcomes so common in hospital births?)

    I'll admit, I'm a rabid natural-birther, so it's hard to please me on that front; I do suggest moms-to-be do some intensive research on the consequences and risks of common interventions (such as epidurals) before plunging into one. Complications following an epidural can too often lead to a c-section. Whew, okay, rant over! In all honesty, the author does a better job of presenting alternatives than most do.

    That being said; there's few other times in your life that you'll need to be able to laugh at yourself than when you are pregnant. Not only does MacPherson provide those much-needed chuckles, but she also provides REALISTIC advice about how much baby gear you should actually buy, some tips on avoiding nausea (though she freely admits it may be likely that you CAN'T), and lots of other down-to-earth advice from the trenches.
