A bit useless

I bought this book based on the reviews, but I'm not sure who this book is for. I've been meditating for 5 years now, and wanted some practical meditations, or even some buddhist insight, on pregnancy.

However, the whole book is "mindfulness is great, my app is great, my business is great". It's off-putting.

Neither a mindfulness nor pregnancy book--just the calm ramblings of a guy talking about how he wanted to write a book, and about how now he's written it. I listened to so many baseless chapters thinking "surely this is the one where the book starts".

For a more mindful pregnancy book with yoga practices, try Active Birth. For meditation practices focused on pregnancy, try YouTube. And for calmness and bonding exercises, try HypnoBirthing classes.
