Our ‘9 Months’ book is out now!

 

Hooray! Our 9 Months book is finally out and available to order! Above is a little promo video we filmed a couple months ago (before Wilkie!) where we explain the inspiration behind the book, and you can see some sneak peeks at the pages inside.

As we mentioned in an earlier post, we have spent the past couple years writing, researching, editing, and working with illustrator Lizzy Stewart to create the book we have always wished we had: a beautifully illustrated fact-based book about pregnancy. It’s a book that celebrates the journey of pregnancy in a straight-forward, no-nonsense way — without euphemisms or silly, abstract language. From conception to birth, the book charts the stages of pregnancy through interesting facts and charming illustrations that will appeal to younger children, as well as more detailed information for older kids to discover. (When writing this book, Esther and I had all of our children in mind — from toddlers up to age 12 — and really hope the book will appeal to children of all ages.)

We hope you and your kids love it. We hope it opens up the dialogue about pregnancy, allowing you to discuss the details and facts in an open, honest way. If you happen to be pregnant, we hope it makes it easier for you to explain to your children what is happening in your body, how your baby is growing and how you’re feeling month by month.

The book is available to purchase now from Amazon (UK and US) and from Booktopia in Australia. We’d love to see photos of you and your children reading it, so please share on social media with hashtag #9monthsbook. Please also feel free to leave a review on Amazon, and of course to share your thoughts with us below. We can’t wait to hear what you think!

Thanks for all your support,

Courtney and Esther xx

I’ve just ordered it and really can’t wait to receive it and read it to my boys! Did you think about translating it into other languages? I would do it in italian, it would be lovely to have an italian version for all those mamas and children who are not so fluent in English in our country! Let me know! Gloria

This book is wonderful. I bought it for myself, just to have, because you both have always been such refreshing inspiration since I’ve become a mother, but my 4 year old found it and wanted to read it together. She has asked to read it several times since, she just loves it. She was only 2- 3 years old when I was pregnant with her brother and I had such a rough pregnancy so many of the topics didn’t come up at the time, so she thoroughly enjoyed all she learned from your book. It helps children to feel more involved and understand the pregnancy so much better. It’s perfect and I know we will get great use out of it as the kids get older and want to know more! I’m so happy for you both, it’s a wonderful book. So well done. Congratulations!!
