Jon and I are overjoyed to share that we are pregnant! Hopefully we will welcome a new life into our family this fall, and want you to be a part of the journey.
I am currently 18 weeks pregnant and starting to show. It has been a beautiful and educational journey thus far, and every day offers new surprises. Through the beginning of my pregnancy, I looked for Jewish resources to help guide and support me through the changes that were going on in my body, my spirit, and my relationships. I realized that the Jewish, creative, personal companion through my pregnancy journey didn't quite exist--and decided to create one myself.
Thus emerged the beginnings of my new project--writing a book for pregnant women that draws on Jewish texts, stories and prayers to provide inspiration, meaning and connection with our tradition. I am excited to journey through my first pregnancy with this writing as a partner, and curious what the fruits of my labor (pun intended!) will look like.
I will be sharing my thoughts of what I'm learning and experiencing as my pregnancy progresses on this blog. Please follow along with me on these new adventures and share your wisdom with me along the way (you can subscribe here).
A new life is forming, and our lives will be changed forever.
