9 Months of Wonder
Available on backorder
Pregnancy is a time like no other, a season of limbo: the baby is here but not here. Mothers-to-be enter a dreamy phase between being and becoming, suspended in wonder with amazement of what we are creating, and curiosity for who we are carrying. We can get so caught up in the new life growing within us—distracted with facts and logistics—that we might easily forget to acknowledge the other transformation taking place as well: the redefining of our own identity.
With a spare, modern design and gorgeous illustration, 9 Months of Wonder is designed to help you to document the liminal space between here and there while softening into the season you’re in. In these journal pages, you’ll find a safe place to record and process your experiences, reflect on the ups and downs, move through fears, and honor the metamorphosis taking place in you as you give birth to the new life of your child and the new parts of yourself.
About Rachel Garahan
Rachel Garahan is a creative director, artist, and innate nurturer. In all of her work, she is drawn
to what she calls the "elemental connection": the space where nature and the human spirit
overlap. She is the founder of One Part Gypsy, a creative design and consulting agency,
and Call of California, a site dedicated to the allure of the west.
Children, nature, art, adventure. These have been the running currents throughout her life. An
entrepreneur from a young age, she created a resume through childcare and the arts before
leaving Vermont at 18 to explore the world for nearly two years on her own. In college she
studied geography, journalism and poetry. After 15 years of working with children, she
committed full-time to her creative pursuits in 2011.
With a strong root in the worlds of natural beauty and wellness, her work is known for being
clean, modern, and sophisticated. Clients include Yoga Journal and Dr. Andrew Weil, and her
lifestyle has attracted praise from the likes of Josie Maran and Tata Harper.
She is based out of Venice, California where she lives with her husband, son, and two pups. A Beauty Collected is her first book.
