From Roman times to the present day, from India to Ecuador … whether we travel across time or distances, through the ages and across the world, mothers-to-be share the same worries whatever their origins or cultural backgrounds: their child’s wellbeing, finding a name, preparing for their arrival… it is such a deep-rooted sentiment that transcends all borders.
This book takes us on a journey to collect all those stories that brim with poetry, magic and beauty. It is intended to bring a touch of happiness, peace and wellbeing to those months of waiting.
Through the stories, rituals and customs, and through mystery, we hope to do our little bit to preserve their memory. Despite their apparent simplicity, they are deeply meaningful.
Above all, it is a book that wants to offer positive thoughts to all the pregnant women who read it.
