Stories of pregnancy, birth, and raising a family in a foreign country
Home is family and family is home. This book is not only for expectant parents as it is a delightful tour of the world through the eyes of people living in countries other than their native land. Without knowing the language, culture, or customs, having a baby abroad isn't as easy as you might expect. Knocked Up Abroad is an anthology of 24 stories about the trials and joys experienced by 21 mothers and two dads who raised their families abroad. These life stories span several continents to highlight the infinite ways in which babies are welcomed into the world. Each story is as unique as the child being born. Their experiences range from the spa-like treatments for postpartum women in Japan to insatiable pregnancy cravings in the Seychelles to non-functioning toilets in West Africa.
