The Baby Decision is a clear, compassionate guide to making a parenting or childfree decision with confidence.  Many women of childbearing age and their partners find it hard to make this life-changing decision. Without a crystal ball, what can you do? Some women say “I like the idea of motherhood, but how do I know I’d really enjoy it?  What will happen to my job, my relationship, my sanity?”  Or they say, “I’m leaning toward being childfree, but will I be sorry later?” 
                Merle Bombardieri, MSW, LICSW has been helping people make this decision for over thirty years in her therapy and coaching practice and in her Baby Decision Workshops.  With a depth that only a psychotherapist can provide, she shows you strategies for dealing with doubt and ambivalence and uncovering your deepest self-knowledge. Through anecdotes, exercises, guidelines, and checklists, she leads you to your best possible choice. 
                Imagine the relief of finally cutting through the tangled vines of pros and cons and seeing a clear decision emerge. Merle helps you not only to make a decision but to use it as an opportunity for you and your relationship to grow.  
                You will learn how to: 
•             Use dozens of “Secret Doors” exercises to uncover hidden feelings and wisdom. 
•             Separate your own needs and preferences from societal myths and expectations. 
•             Give full consideration to the rewards and opportunities of living childfree. 
•             Talk constructively with your partner even if you disagree. 
•             Manage work-life balance and keep your relationship strong. 
•             Make decisions about one-child families, single and gay parenting, fertility and adoption. 
•             Borrow some of the benefits of the other choice. 
You will also learn how to trust your decision and make the most of it. 
•             Includes resources and bibliography. 
•             Bonus section: Preparing your body for a healthy pregnancy.

    This book captures the essence of modern family life. Much has changed since our own childhoods; the good old days.
    Todays parents are challenged by the need to invent their own parenting style. This can only happen from within, based on our personal values and boundaries.
    Jesper Juul puts it very clearly: The love we feel for our children and our partners does not in itself have any value. It has no value at all until it is converted into loving behavior.
    Each chapter focuses on the values that form a solid platform on which to build a family: Equal dignity, Integrity, Authenticity and Responsibility. This makes family life more meaningful and parents avoid living frantically from conflict to conflict, desperately searching for quick solutions and trying to adapt to the most popular parenting technique of the day.
    A book full of everyday examples and practical ideas.

    According to a study done by the National Alliance for Caregiving and the AARP, Caregiving in the U.S., almost 44 million adults are providing personal assistance for family members with disabilities or other care needs.
    In 2011, Baby Boomers began turning 65, and each day through 2029, 10,000 more will reach that milestone, which means an increased demand for services providing care for the elderly.
    Family caregivers spend an average of 20 hours per week caring for loved ones, and 13 percent are providing 40 hours of care a week or more; the value of uncompensated care provided by family members of friends is estimated at $450 billion annually.

    Just as a gastric band restricts the amount of food you eat. This book can help you do the same using your mind instead.  It helps reduce information overload by focusing on just 2 methods, not 10. So there is far less trial and error, and more certainty.  These 2 methods give very effective, long term results. With the least amount of time and effort. They can work for anyone: 1. To focus on reducing the volume of food you eat.  2. To know the correct mindset to allow you to achieve this consistently.  Although weight loss and the mind can be quite complex subjects. This is the only in depth book that can show you how to succeed in both areas. But without getting complicated and boring.  It keeps things simple with a common sense approach. This makes the information easier to apply. The book is a short read too. It tells you just what you need to know, and nothing else. The mindset alone, is so overlooked when it comes to weight loss. But it’s the “missing link” that is so crucial for long term, consistent weight loss results.  This book also talks about habits. Habits are very powerful and can run your life… in the right, or wrong way. This book can show you how to change your mental and physical habits for good, without relying on motivation. It will teach you methods that can take years to figure out. Methods that most people will never know. Just applying a few of them could be all it takes to achieve your weight loss goals. This book acknowledges that one size does not fit all, and can meet many needs. It uses an approach which makes it easier to handle food cravings. And to keep the weight off in the long run. All without leaving you feeling deprived.  Our books are written with the following purpose in mind: To empower the world with knowledge of their minds and the truth to achieve their goals with less time and effort. To do this, we reduce information overload to focus more on the things that really work. We make the complex simple. We innovate. And we truly care about helping people above all else.  In short, we want to help you… Know the Truth. Know Your Mind. Simplify. Achieve.
