Descriptions du produit



This book was conceived nearly thirty years ago in the kitchen of a dear friend’s home. At that time, she and I, both midwives and each the mother of a young child, were beginning a lifetime journey of uncovering and rediscovering a great wealth of information about childbearing and child raising. We were gleaning information from a variety of sources: anthropological research, medical and lay texts, our work as mothers and midwives, the experiences of other midwives and mothers, and, most significantly, what we were learning from our intuition, from each other as women friends, from our partnerships with our mates, and from our babies. We had found that pregnancy did not have to be ten (lunar) months of drudgery, discomfort, and exhaustion. We were finding that pregnancy and motherhood could be highly creative times, filled with confidence, perceptiveness, awe, and appreciation for the beauty of our changing physical shape, and the extension of this in the form of our growing children.

Standing in the doorway of that kitchen on an early spring day, a moment ripe for beginnings, I found an inspiration and made the commitment to carry this inspiration inside me, to gestate and nurture my discoveries until, like a baby after a full-term pregnancy, a book would be ready to emerge, to be born—a book to share the joy and strength I was gaining from my experiences. That so many women see pregnancy as a burden to be endured, a time fraught with insecurity and doubt, seemed a great loss. Aware of the transformative potential of the written word, I became determined to contribute a positive, supportive narrative about pregnancy by a woman and mother, for women and mothers everywhere.
I now have four children, all of whom have grown and flourished in their own unique and significant ways. I’ve had healthy pregnancies, strong labors, and beautiful births. I’ve nursed my babies and deeply enjoyed each of our children through every stage of childhood, adolescence, and unfolding adulthood. Each pregnancy has reaffirmed my conviction that natural health care is the bedrock of continuing wellness for myself and my family, and watching my children develop into strong, healthy beings has only strengthened that principle. In addition to my own pregnancies, I have had the honor to know and assist many women and families on the mostly joyous, sometimes tumultuous, and occasionally painful path of pregnancy. I experienced life come full circle this past January when I served as the midwife for the birth of my first grandchild. The joy I felt as I witnessed and supported my baby as he experienced the birth of his baby was transcendent, otherworldly, a moment that far exceeded any fantasy I could have dreamed up.

As women have become increasingly aware of the options of natural birth and home birth, and of the potential value of natural therapies as safe alternatives to some of the conventional medical treatments of common pregnancy complaints, I have watched with pride and elation as this book has found renewed purpose. Today it speaks to more than a piqued group of concerned alternative thinkers; it speaks to a diverse population of women and mothers who are curious about taking control of their health, their bodies, and their pregnancies. The face of wellness has changed since this book was first published, and there is now welcomed emphasis on natural treatments, herbal medicine, and integrative support. It is a pleasure to share this book—one of the original voices in the world of natural health for mommas—with you. The wisdom and information within it stands the test of time.

Revue de presse

“From conception to birth, and all the days between, this book offers history, remedies, and woman-loving visions of health in a clear voice that rings with experience.” 
—Susan Weed, author of Wise Woman Herbal for the Childbearing Year

“This is truly the best book available on pregnancy and childbirth and should be read by everyone considering parenthood.”
—Rosemary Gladstar, author of Herbal Healing for Women

Every pregnant woman is looking for answers to their questions, consolation for their fears and the best information possible to help get them through this most miraculous time. Here you will find all you need and more all wrapped up in one book. You will discover what your body is going through. How the baby is growing. Foods to help best nourish you and the baby. Natural alternatives for aches and pains. How to work with your body for a natural birth. How to listen to your body. Exercises you can do during and after pregnancy, and so much more! All is laid out in a simple and easy to understand manner and it comes with trusted expertise!

I think this book is full of useful information for the mom to be. Whether it's a first pregnancy, or a first natural pregnancy, this book will prove to be useful. As someone who has done home births with both my children, I am all for going natural, so I really think this will be a useful book of information to fall back on should I have anymore. And it will be a great book to share with others who are considering a less conventional birth. I think it's great to be educated about all your options during pregnancy and choose for yourself what you believe to be best. This book will help you with those decisions. My only complaint is the lack of creativity in the books layout. But that's something that may only apply to me. I have a hard time reading lots of information if nothing about it shows any visual interest. It's useful none the less and I'd definetly recommend it and lend it out.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review from the publisher.

Another wonderful book by a wonderful woman. She is so knowledgable and had such a welcoming approach in her writing. Many helpful ideas, thoughts, and remedies even for my second pregnancy. Just reading the book makes me feel like I am doing something for 'me'.

I had high hopes for this book, based on the reviews of previous editions. However, all credibility went out the window when I read the section on miscarriages. The very first bullet point under general recommendations said that if you have a miscarriage you might have to "come to terms with whether in your heart of hearts you really want to be pregnant." Umm, WHAT?!?!? If that isn't the most horrifically damaging thing to say to a woman who has lost a pregnancy, then I don't know what is. It is uneducated, antiquated, and downright ignorant to blame the woman for not "wanting" her pregnancy enough. I couldn't take the rest of the book seriously after reading such crap.

Yes, I'm pregnant. Yes, I love to read as many books as I can about pregnancy. Pregnancy can be an amazing journey.
This book is not your typical pregnancy book. It has all kinds of different, more holistic options and approaches to all things related to pregnancy. I have always wanted to read this sort of book since I am very interested in organic and natural remedies and alternatives.
I read this book from beginning to end, in a few weeks. It took me longer to read simply because I was having terrible morning sickness and didn't feel like doing much some days. It was nice to read some more natural remedies and suggestions on how to treat my morning sickness, actually. Helped me get through some of it. In fact, I really enjoyed reading this book, because there are a lot of different things throughout this book about being pregnant that I would have never known or even considered. I don't entirely think that I would try every single remedy or approach in this book, simply because I don't know enough about the safety of some of the herbs used. However, this book does give you a lot of things to think about in regards to how to take the best care of yourself while pregnant, the types of foods you should and should not eat, health issues/common complaints that you may experience during pregnancy, and more. So much information within those pages! I was very into this book and highly recommend this book to any expecting moms, women looking to become pregnant, for husbands/boyfriends, for grandparents, or just anyone really wanting to know more about natural options during pregnancy.
