Expectant Mother Love Quotes -
Insights for Pregnant Moms

Expectant Mother Love Quotes - there's nothing like the joy of being pregnant with a child. I'll always remember how happy I felt ... how sexy. One day, while I was waiting in line at the bank, I witnessed a tender moment between a mother and child who were ahead of me in line.

I tapped the woman on the shoulder and summoned the courage to ask, "What's it really like to have a child." A smile spread across her face and her eyes teared up, "It's like falling in love ... only better."

She was right. The intimacy between my son and I was incredible, the bond of love and trust, a constant source of joy. My son taught me how to love, how to be a mother and I used these lessons to transform myself from a self-involved young woman, into a humane human being. Motherhood is the journey of a lifetime, an opportunity for personal growth. Read all about it in my award-winning parenting book, Keepers of the Children, which uses wisdom from ancient Native Americans to teach you how to transform yourself through motherhood and truly become a steward of your child.

I hope you enjoy these expectant mother love quotes below. Some of them come from my book.

The mother's heart is the child's schoolroom.

Henry Ward Beecher

Women do not have to sacrifice personhood if they
are mothers. They do not have to sacrifice motherhood
in order to be persons. Liberation was meant to expand
women's opportunities, not to limit them. The sel-esteem
that has been found in new pursuits can also be found
in mothering.

~ Elaine Heffner

Parenting is as much about your growth and development
