Baby bumps, twists, and turns around the globe
This heartwarming, sometimes hilarious, and sometimes heartbreaking anthology of stories by 25 women in 25 different countries illustrates that the more we see, the more we learn about ourselves as human beings.
The second anthology in the Knocked Up Abroad series takes readers on an emotional, heartfelt, and humorous journey as an international group of mothers traverse the obstacles, trials, and tribulations of pregnancy, birth, and parenting around the globe.
Each mother experiences the cultural differences when raising children in a country that looks, sounds, and expects completely different behaviors than the culture in which she was raised herself.
From South America to Asia and many countries in between, the core values of love, heartache, loss, and growth are common for mothers everywhere.

Knocked Up Abroad Again is a terrific collection of honest stories that show us that motherhood knows no borders.
This is a collection of stories and most of them were something that you want to read repeatedly. Not all of the stories were interesting, but all of them were worth the read. It's an homage to mothers and motherhood, and mixed with different cultures. One thing all mothers-to-be share, and that's the unknown. The fears, hopes, dreams and everything else that life brings before the child is even born. My favorite chapter was chapter 11, entitled "Seven weeks and twenty eight days." I also liked that is was separated by chapter, rather than just a collection of stories. It flowed well and was put together perfectly. I may just have to read the first one.
