"I've had three of my four children within two months of a relocation so I certainly appreciate the unique challenges of moving with infants. By applying the information in Global Baby, including placing your own well-being as a high priority, you can look forward to a wonderfully rewarding experience in your new country of residence."
- Margie Warrell, Life Coach for Busy Women

"If you're having a baby outside your home-country, or know someone who is, then this is the book for you. It covers all the practical stuff necessary for life on the move with a baby in tow, and also provides sage advice about how to stay connected to your own culture whilst embracing the best of your new culture. The chapter on air travel alone is worth every cent!"
