Fostering a new breed of empowered single mothers through education, acceptance, and respect.
Eagle River, Alaska (PRWEB) July 8, 2010
When Mari Gallion, an unmarried tour guide in Alaska, discovered she was pregnant, she immediately made the decision to have the baby. What she never expected was the face the hypocrisy of the movement that condemns a woman’s right to choose while withholding information that could empower single women who have chosen to continue with unplanned or unsupported pregnancies. In response, Gallion wrote this comprehensive guide that offers unconditional assistance to all single women who have chosen the unorthodox path of motherhood without the participation of a partner. The Single Woman’s Guide to a Happy Pregnancy, 2010 Edition is not about morning sickness or blotchy skin; rather, it is about attaining personal power, confidence, and well-being.
According to a May 2010 report released by the U.S. Census Bureau, approximately 41% of all babies born in the United States are the offspring of married women. As Gallion points out so eloquently, these women are not only facing pregnancy alone, but many are experiencing coercion and social alienation that results in unnecessary emotional and physical stress for both mother and child.
The Single Woman’s Guide to a Happy Pregnancy, 2010 Edition is the author’s gift to these single mothers-to-be. It is a consistently positive and sometimes humorous account that offers advice in remaining in charge, avoiding depression, and finding those community and government agencies that truly offer assistance for decided mothers-to-be as opposed to women seeking adoption, abortion, or “options counseling.” In addition, Gallion offers suggestions about keeping a healthy social life, money management, staying active, and even what items to acquire after the baby comes, making this a very useful book indeed. The 2010 Edition features an expanded chapter on seeking child support, establishing custody, and the latest health news regarding hazardous chemicals, foods, and food additives.
