We live in turbulent times. As the era of Moshiach nears, life becomes progressively more chaotic for our nation and for each of us individually. Families today are dealing with challenges they would never have imagined facing, and adults and young people alike grapple with painful issues from unexpected sources. The need to bolster the Jewish family, the truest foundation of our people, has never been greater; we must build, strengthen and protect our nation from the inside out, beginning even before our children enter the world.
Ashrei Yoladeto is a beautiful handbook to help couples along the path as they anticipate their most exalted role - being parents. The abundant collection of wisdom contained herein helps them develop the proper attitudes toward their new role, through prayer and through understanding each stage of pregnancy through birth, and the first two years, or more, after birth. In this book you will find essential practical guidance in matters of halachah, Jewish customs and behavior, and many medical issues that may arise. We have also included many traditionally accepted healing practices, as well as nutritional and spiritual advice.
The "Shaarei Tefillah" section, found at the back of the book, is a collection of traditional prayers composed for the various stages of pregnancy, birth and after the birth, presented in both Hebrew and English.
This book provides invaluable tools to give our children the advantages they need to succeed in every aspect of life, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. It gives parents the support they need to make their way through the precious time of pregnancy and their children's infancy, in the best way possible, never losing sight of the ultimate goal of building a strong Jewish family that will bring honor to Am Yisrael.
