How about I am having a little fan girl moment? When I was approached about writing a book review for Kelly Rowland’s new book Whoa, Baby! First of all I did not have any idea that she had written a new book, secondly where did she find the time for such a passion project? Thirdly, how did I get chosen for such a divine review? I could not believe that I have this amazing opportunity to review this unreleased book before it is offered to the public on April, 11 2017!
I have loved Kelly Rowland since her early days in Destiny’s Child for over a decade. I think this is so awesomely special that she has joined the sacred world of motherhood. Listen this go-to guide is spot on for new moms. Basically, she had me hooked with the title of the book Whoa, Baby! because that is primarily how I felt as a new mom.
Also, I seriously laughed out loud at the chapter descriptions: Is there anything that I can do to make this easier (The Final Stretch), Is This Finally Happening for Real? ( The Drama of Delivery), Will I ever Walk Again? (My Messed Up Lady Parts), So now we are both wearing diapers?(Urinary Incontinence).
I had some of these similar thoughts, and so much more during my first pregnancy. I was thinking, “What did I get myself into?,” Why am I becoming a mother again? Kelly Rowland is like talking to your dearest sister friend in this helpful, and hilarious guide.
Next she captured my heart with her humorous cover photo and insightful introduction. It’s great to know that pregnancy can be enjoyed because you are only blessed to give birth naturally so many times in life. I really enjoyed my pregnancy too. I relished in the fact that I had a brand new human life growing inside of me, eating anything and everything that I wanted in the process, shopping for adorable maternity clothes, while taking in all the advice that I could handle from a new sisterhood of mothers. But don’t get me wrong, I am not going to sit here and proclaim that I had a perfect pregnancy, because that is certainly not the case. I had my struggles in the midst of happiness, nervousness, and immense excitement!
I remember being nauseous and praying to the porcelain God all nine months of my pregnancy, even to the point of throwing up in the delivery room, before my little prince made his grand entrance into the world! I thoroughly lived for the time when I reached my third trimester and could finally see both of my children’s divine faces.I have learned never to take anything in life for granted including pregnancy, delivery, and raising my children.
Whoa, Baby! is the book that I wish that I had in my arsenal of pregnancy books. When I tell you that I had an arsenal of books that is definitely an understatement, especially with my first pregnancy. I think that I read every pregnancy guide, journal, work book, website, and watched every episode of A Baby Story on TLC.
That is one thing of a about a million others, that I enjoyed about Kelly’s book is when she mentioned watching A Baby Story! I had a moment of reflection of doing the exact same thing, especially while creating my epic birth plan. I love Kelly’s candid advice and sharing her experience as a new mom. I would highly recommend this book to any new mom, seasoned, mom, book club and for anyone thinking about motherhood in the future.
