The Yoga Mamas
Author: Katherine Stewart
They're pregnant. They're glamorous. They're blissfully balanced. Or maybe that's all just a pose...
Laura is pregnant. She is stressed. She is exhausted. So she takes a deep, yogic breath, forgets about her husband, leaves her cramped apartment...and joins the Prada-clad celebrities and socialites at the most elite yoga center in the city. She figures she is a few tax brackets too short of fitting in. But she finds herself befriended by four huge-hearted, fabulously pregnant women who prove her wrong. Soon they are exchanging birthing plans and baby names and dirty secrets about their significant others. Everything is falling into place. Until she discovers one of them has a secret so big it just might burst their blissful yoga bubble.
This is a must read for moms or moms-to-be. More than once I found myself going “oh yeah, been there.” Even of you don’t like or do Yoga, just watching Laura go from pregnancy to new motherhood is worth buying this book. It made, at least it did me, feel like I wasn’t the only one who dealt with the “mommy" stuff. I really enjoyed this interesting look at pregnancy and motherhood. Especially the with the extras that were thrown in to spice up the book. Although I should warn you there is a pretty intense section of a home-birth that goes wrong. If considering a home birth, you might want to wait till after to read this book. This is a heartwarming book, filled with strong women, wonderful friendships and a laugh or two.
