Embrace: A Pregnancy Journal

Embrace: A Pregnancy Journal Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This beautiful journal is filled with Nikki McClure's signature images and ideas for embracing beauty, joy, and courage in the journey toward motherhood. Filled with new gorgeous paper-cut artwork, the journal's colorful pages and thoughtful directives encourage women to record their pregnancy from the first month through the welcoming of their little one into the world.

Synopsis:

Pregnancy is an adventure like no other; a time of tremendous physical and emotional change for a mother-to-be. Filled with hopes and dreams, it's also a time during which women make plans, lists, and important decisions — there is much to "embrace." Many women, especially first-time mothers, want a place to record this singular time in their lives. Nikki McClure, a mother herself, inspires with her beautiful artwork, and reassures with her comforting voice in this journal which accompanies a mother-to-be through her nine months of pregnancy and her baby's birth. There is space to record her hopes and wishes for her baby, as well as the big moments of the pregnancy (how she learned she was pregnant, how she shared the news), as well as space to make lists (baby names!), and room for keepsakes (ultrasound photos!). The journal is very much like McClure's popular book, The First 1,000 Days, a journal for recording the milestones and small but precious moments of a child's first three years of life. Embrace inspires joy, trust, love, and courage in moms-to-be, and is a perfect prequel to The First 1,000 Days.

About the Author

Armed with an X-acto knife, Nikki McClure cuts out her images from a single sheet of paper and creates a bold language that translates the complex poetry of motherhood, nature, and activism into a simple and endearing picture. She lives in Olympia, WA.
