I don’t read a lot of parenting books, because I truly believe in instinct or gut feeling when it comes to parenting. However, I did come across a few useful and a few funny books about pregnancy, child birth and parenting which I am sharing with you here (all recommendations are based on my personal opinion, I don’t get a cent if you click on or buy any of them).
Knocked Up Abroad: Stories of pregnancy, birth, and raising a family in a foreign country by Lisa Ferland
This is the perfect book for people like me who love to travel and learn about how things are done in different cultural contexts. It tells the stories of 21 mothers and two dads who gave birth and raised their families abroad. The stories are at times hilarious, at times frustrating, but surely always valuable life experiences the authors wouldn’t want to miss.
Knocked Up Abroad Again: Baby bumps, twists and turns around the globe (Volume 2) by Lisa Ferland
In fact, I enjoyed reading the first book so much that I continued straight with the second anthology in the Knocked Up Abroad series – and I wasn’t disappointed. You can continue to follow Lisa’s own adventures in Sweden on her blog at www.knockedupabroad.com.
