We're excited to announce that we have signed a deal with HCI to write a book about body image, pregnancy, and new motherhood.
It's no secret that we are pretty frustrated with all the appearance-related pressures facing pregnant women and new moms. Our book will explore those pressures, dispel some myths, and provide practical advice to help women cope with all the "lose the baby weight" messages without losing their minds. And that's where you come in.
We're calling on our network of readers, friends, and colleagues to share your experiences and opinions. Would you take a few minutes and fill out one of our surveys? Please add your comments within the surveys if our questions don't get to everything you want say on the topic!
Take this survey if you are a woman who does not have children yet or you do not plan to have children
Take this survey if you are currently pregnant
Take this survey if you are a mother who has given birth and you are not currently pregnant
Take this survey if your partner has given birth or she is currently pregnant
Three more ways you can be part of this project:
1. Contact us if you are willing to be interviewed for the book.
2. Forward this link to others who might be interested.
3. Publish this link on your blogs and websites and in your newsletters.
Thanks a million, people! As always, we appreciate your support and encouragement. We'll keep you updated on our progress as we move closer to the release date, which will be sometime in Fall 2009.
