I might have a problem.

Recently one of my friends told me she was pregnant with her first. In my ever helpful way (ha. "helpful."), I asked a million questions, talked her through all possible options for birth classes/prenatal yoga/best hospitals/doulas/etc., and then when I got home I pulled out all my books on pregnancy and childbirth to lend her.

This is what I came up with:

For the record, I'm only actually lending her the top four, because those four are my favorites.

But still, isn't that an absurd amount of books on this topic for one person to own?!

So then I made this meme and sent it to her. I just had to.

Although maybe this is more accurate:

I don't know, guys. I wonder if I missed my calling to be a midwife or postpartum doula or something. Is it normal to be so obsessed with this topic? (Frank would say, "No and can we please talk about something else?" Ha.)

Oh and this is not an announcement... I just feel like that's a necessary disclaimer for Catholic mom bloggers. :)


  1. I do the same thing. And I'm not even dating anyone! (much less a Catholic mom ;) It is verrrry closely related to my profession, though.

  2. Haha! I definitely own at least half of those books myself. :)

  3. Yes, it's normal. : ) I'm really looking forward to to the maternal health section of my nursing program.

    The necessary disclaimer is great, too. ;)
