ABOUT THE BOOK
Hosting a baby shower is a great honor, whether you are planning the shower for a friend, colleague or family member. Far from just being another social event, a baby shower is a time for the mother-to-be to receive the love, support and well wishes of those who care about her.
Although gifts are usually at the heart of the shower, they are not the only purpose. In an age of online communication and long-distance friends, baby showers offer an opportunity for emotional support, gathering friends together around a common cause. Whether everyone already knows each other or most people will need to be introduced, this is a great time to gather around a common cause that doesn't happen every day. Welcoming a new baby into the world is an important milestone in many people's lives, so it's also important to take the time to celebrate and acknowledge this event.

EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK
Unless it is a surprise baby shower, you may find it helpful to consult with the mother-to-be. If you do not want to bother her, get together with her close friends and family members, such as her husband, sister or best friend. You probably already have a good sense of what the mother-to-be prefers for her shower, but talking to her directly or polling some of her close friends will probably reveal preferences that you were not already aware of.
When you are not pregnant, it can be hard to remember all the seemingly innocuous things that are dangerous for pregnant women. Make sure to double-check all your refreshments so that the mother-to-be can indulge freely and without guilt. No alcohol is an obvious choice. Even if the guests can still drink alcohol, you don't want the mother-to-be feeling awkward and left out. There are other foods that a pregnant mother should avoid, including most types of fish, undercooked meat, deli meat, soft cheeses, unwashed vegetables and unpasteurized milk. All these foods may contain bacteria, mercury or other substances that could run the risk of harming the unborn baby. Keep the sushi, brie cheese and deli meat trays away from this party.
