It’s books day! Just for the mamas-to-be! As I reflect back on the books I’ve read throughout my four pregnancies I wanted to share my very top favorites, the books that really impacted how I think about pregnancy and the ones that helped me best prepare for motherhood.

Today, I’m two days late. Late for what? Well … MY FOURTH BIRTH! Hence, another belly photo instead of a sweet little baby face!
