"Love this Book!! This Book was so helpful to my husband and I when we were sleep deprived and needed a quick refresher on what to do. I also love the fact that it's a book that is quick to the point and gives you the most important information. It is so hard to sit down and read some of these mommy to be books that are 300 + pages and they talk in circles. This book was a awesome read and I recommend it to all my new mommies to be!"

Mission iCare Press, LLC

iCare Press is a 21st Century media publisher dedicated to helping empower, inform and inspire readers in a practical, clear way.

Mission The First 8 Days of Being a Mom

Empower woman and their intimate circle with clear and practical information to achieve good and healthy beginnings for mother and child.   


iCare Press was conceived organically. Gea Meijering’s own experiences becoming a mother and using the Dutch equivalent of The First 8 Days of Being a Mom manual in the USA and the wish from other moms to have the same manual available in English made her start this venture.

Enter fellow mom Melissa Sherman Pearl who willingly threw in her writing and editing skills and encouraged Gea to actually print the book.

And so iCare Press was born to make the manual available in the USA.

The motivating goal was to give expectant moms and their families a solid base of concise and proven information to achieve a healthy and sane beginning of new life and motherhood.

And as this whole project was conceived organically for the most part we try to promote, market and grow in the same way.

We like to create an environment for our customers, our partners, the public and ourselves which is meaningful, empowers, informs, motivates, builds self esteem, responsibility, is healthy, creative and sometimes fun.
