Momasphere and Bump present a probing panel discussion & book reading that examines body image and motherhood. Whether you want to become pregnant for the first time, you’re currently pregnant, 4 months out of pregnancy or 10 years out of pregnancy, this book deals with body image and fitness issues that last a lifetime. Beauty activists Claire Mysko and Magali Amadei surveyed more than 400 women, including those who are considering starting a family, moms-to-be, and mothers. They offer a much-needed forewarning on what to expect from your changing body, exposing the myths, challenges, and insecurities you’ll face throughout pregnancy and beyond—and what to do about them. With startling confessions of women’s unspoken fears and advice on how to remedy them, this essential compendium of girl-friendly advice will help champion any woman to feel her best about her body, herself, and her role as a mom.

I will be there, and am really excited because this is such an important issue. Every woman in my life has struggles with body image, and self-esteem issues at one time or another. Please come, you won’t be disappointed, and there will be great raffles (we contributed) and goody bags.
