Inhaltsangabe: With the birth of a baby comes other new beginnings: the birth of a mother, of a father, of a family. Becoming "us" is more than just a physical transformation; it's a psychological, emotional and spiritual one, too. In older cultures and in villages around the globe parenthood was supported as a rite of passage, yet guidelines for the transition have largely been lost in our Western world, until now. Becoming Us is about in-betweens. It's about what comes after 'pregnancy' and before 'parenting.' It's about the relationship we have with our newly unfolding parent-self and the one in between us and our lover as we grow from connected partners into connected parents. Becoming Us forms a bridge between expectation and reality, in between who we are and how we hope our family to be. Whether you're welcoming your first baby or your fourth, this ground-breaking book combines new research, age-old wisdom and the stories of hundreds of mothers and fathers to support all families - traditional or not, straight or gay, with biological children or adopted - through the eight steps of the modern parenthood rite of passage. Becoming Us provides the nutrient-rich soil for all couples to prepare for and grow a family that thrives.
"Weaving ancient wisdom and modern science, this warm, inviting and supportive book is a superb gift to the expecting couple." Suzanne Arms, Birthing the Future.
Babies bring 'becomings': women becoming mothers, men becoming fathers, couples becoming a family. Becoming "us" is much more than a physical transformation; it's a mental, emotional and spiritual one, too. Older cultures honored parenthood as a rite of passage, yet guidelines for modern families - both traditional and non-traditional - haven't existed. Until now. "A Landmark." - Dr Jordan Paul, Do I Have to Give up Me to be Loved by You?
"Wonderful, worthy and needed." - Dr Marcy Axness, Parenting for Peace.
"The world needs this!", Kent Hoffman, Circle of Security.
Whether you're hoping for your first baby or welcoming your fourth, this ground-breaking guidebook walks you through the eight steps of the early parenthood adventure, so you can both prepare for and grow a family that thrives.
