The brainchild of three women-a journalist, a magazine editor, and a practicing psychotherapist-Dreaming for Two explores the significance of dreams on the expectant mother.

Filled with a wide-ranging collection of women's real-life dreams, this one-of-a-kind book analyzes the unconscious motivation behind the vivid, frequently intense visions experienced by expectant mothers. From dreams about their changing sense of identity to dreams about evolving relationships with family, friends, and their unborn child, Dreaming for Two helps pregnant women understand what dreams tell them about their deepest hopes and fears about their imminent motherhood.

According to Hillary Grill, a practicing psychotherapist, the physiological, emotional, and psychological transformations that take place during pregnancy play a major role in a woman's dream state. During this time marked by heightened sensitivity and widely varied emotions, these images can provide an important key to an expectant mother's state of mind and inner feelings. As they develop the tools to examine their dreams, expectant mothers discover new ways to cope with the enormous changes pregnancy brings, and to confront concerns about everything from giving birth to whether or not they will be effective mothers.

Dreaming for Two is a fascinating, accessible book that belongs on every expecting mother's bookshelf.
