Revue de presse

"Pregnancy is such an amazing time in a woman's life and should be honored and valued. Sacred Pregnancy helps empower women and encourages them to personally reflect on their internal process before having children. This is a beautiful gift to all pregnant women!"
—Ricki Lake, actress, and Abby Epstein, filmmaker, The Business of Being Born

"Sacred Pregnancy provides vital information in a framework that is crucial for women and families embarking on the tremendous adventure and responsibility of birthing new life. An important reference that you will keep next to your bed throughout your pregnancy."
—Alisa Donner, MSW, LCSW, cofounder, Pregnancy Awareness Month

"I wish I had read Sacred Pregnancy when I was pregnant instead of the dozen books I had to piece together to try to make sense of it all. Anni Daulter has created what should be the new standard for today's mom: birth journals, labor workbooks, pregnancy memoirs, and holistic wisdom. It is gentle and enlightening, and lays the foundation for what we know helps women have the labor and birth they want and deserve: support, self-knowledge, and empowerment."
—Mayim Bialik, actress

"I have never read such an in-depth, affirmative and warm book about our power as women in birth. Sacred Pregnancy is unique—instead of focusing outward on what we need, it draws us inward to honor the tools we inherently have. This book is a must-have journal and keepsake for the sacred mama-to-be in your life."
—Rachel Myers, Green Hugs, healthy-home and green-nest advocate

"Sacred Pregnancy brought tears to my eyes. This book brings the outward and inward experiences of pregnancy together in such a powerful and beautiful way. Anni Daulter has documented such important milestones that happen to each and every pregnant woman during pregnancy and offers connective ways to go deep within each step of the way. Connection and healing are such important aspects of pregnancy that very often get overlooked in our fast-paced society. Sacred Pregnancy is a book that every pregnant woman should have access to during this special and empowering point in her life."
—Lisa DeNardo, mother of five and blogger at

"Few women are so committed to advocating for a woman's right to birth her baby in a sacred and empowering way as Anni Daulter is. She has a tremendous gift to offer us all in her passion to protect the family dynamic as she shares the mysteries of the birth journey with us."
—Aleksandra Evanguelidi, LM, CPM, owner of The Sanctuary Birth & Family Wellness Center

"Sacred Pregnancy is a wonderful book and is absolutely beautiful and touching. It really speaks to vital pregnancy issues—I would recommend this as a gift for all pregnant moms."
—Shiva Rose, actress

"Sacred Pregnancy is an amazing book and it's so gorgeous! I wish this were available to me during any of my three pregnancies, as I think this will help women get more in touch with themselves throughout this beautiful process. I would happily recommend Sacred Pregnancy to all expecting moms."
—Shanna Moakler, actress, TV personality, and mother of Alabama, Atiana, and Landon

"It's rare to find a pregnancy book that is nourishing, empowering, informative, and enjoyable, but Sacred Pregnancy manages to do all of that and more. Anni Daulter challenges her readers to reframe and rethink the way society looks and talks about pregnancy. This book shines through as a reminder that we already have all that we need around us to have a positive and fulfilling pregnancy. A must read for any mother-to-be!"
—Avital Norman Nathman, blogger at The Mamafesto: Where Motherhood & Feminism Collide

"Sacred Pregnancy is a wonderful read for a mom-to-be who is interested in the spiritual side of pregnancy. It is uplifting and beautifully photographed and illustrated.
—Julie Davine

"Sacred Pregnancy is a beautiful book that employs all five senses and makes your spirit rise in a 40-week exploration of self. The author goes beyond the basics of what's happening with your body and your baby and looks at each week through a holistic lens to include mind, spirit, and community. It is rich with resources to help you truly experience your journey through pregnancy as a sacred event. It's like having a friend who knows just the right thing to say to support you throughout your journey."
—Holly Keich, owner of Om Baby

"The months of pregnancy and new motherhood fly by, and most of us are left with a sense of 'What just happened?' Sacred Pregnancy invites women to reflect, to write, to be completely conscious during this most amazing life experience. Not only will women learn from it, they will be inspired by it. This beautiful book will become a cherished keepsake. Every enlightened mother-to-be should have a copy."
—Peg Moline, Editor in Chief, Fit Pregnancy magazine

"I am in LOVE with this book. I think every woman should carry it throughout her pregnancy! This book addresses all of the fears, concerns, myths, joys, rites, and relationships that come with pregnancy. Each thoughtful chapter has a dedicated space for journaling on that particular topic, at once creating not just a beautiful book to read, but an amazing keepsake of such a magical time. Filled with poignant stories, facts, suggestions, and inspiration, it takes you on a spiritual journey throughout the 40 weeks of pregnancy, encouraging you to revel in the awe of the universe, your blossoming body, babies, and the awesome power of birth."
—Melanie Monroe, Ecobaby planning+concierge

"Finally, the baby book I've been waiting for! A refreshing contrast to the typical textbook-style baby books, Sacred Pregnancy takes a turn to focus on the mother's needs and her journey from conception to birth and what's important in between—her body, her baby, and her spirit. During such a miraculous time when the body is transforming, hormones are raging, and baby is growing by the minute, it is truly rejuvenating to find a book that concentrates on the balance within the pregnant woman. This is a breath of fresh air for any mother-to-be!"
—Martha Lee, blogger at

"Sacred Pregnancy brings expecting mothers an inspiring gift that will prepare them for the labor experience with confidence and joy by connecting them with inner wisdom, community awareness, and human compassion."
—Ana Paula Markel, founder of BINI Birth,

"Sacred Pregnancy is an antidote and healing balm bringing us home in every image, every page, every resource to our deeper knowing that the journey bringing life forward is indeed a holy rite of passage deserving of our highest honor and respect. This is no ordinary book but rather a magical daily portal beckoning you with every transition and turn of the page to remember that this entire epilogue initiation of pregnancy, moment by moment, is to be treasured."
—ALisa Starkweather, founder of the Red Tent Temple Movement and Women's Belly and Womb Conferences

"Reading through Sacred Pregnancy allowed me to remember back to each of my pregnancies, the fears, the joys, and discoveries I had made each time. I wish I had something this wonderful to have logged all stages of each of my pregnancies since they were so different. The book's resources are so helpful, especially when there is so much information to weed through, and the desire to do everything perfectly is so strong for new mothers. I recommend this book to any mother-to-be who wants to know herself more deeply during this time."
—Tnah Louise, Bella Faccia Foto

"I believe that Sacred Pregnancy will succeed in bringing the spirit energy and the strength of the universal feminine energy back to pregnancy and birth. The glorious photos make visible a woman's inner and outer beauty during this huge life transition while the soothing affirmations allow her to move into her mothering space with joy and calm. In moving through the pregnancy experience week by week, the book helps a woman move more organically into growing her baby and allows pregnancy to take on less of a frightening urgency so that it slows down into a peaceful, mindful, and fulfilling process that mom and all around her can enjoy far deeper than has become the habit in our society."
—Ruth Blanding, Joy In Momming blog

"Sacred Pregnancy is an invaluable resource for expecting moms. Anni's holistic and passionate understanding of all the physical and emotional nuances of pregnancy shines through her writing. Not only has this become an incredible resource for my wife as she experiences pregnancy number three, it's an amazing tool for me as an 'expecting father.' It has helped me understand my wife's journey so much more deeply and provided detailed ways I can support her (whether it's making a special tea or helping her create a comforting space). I recommend any expecting couple to read this book together."
—Christopher Gavigan, founder, The Honest Company

"Full of original ideas for food, movie, book, website, and other pairings for the weeks of pregnancy, Sacred Pregnancy is a one of a kind book. Exquisitely beautiful photographs and gorgeous design complement the loving tone of acceptance so richly present in its pages. Sacred Pregnancy will lift the spirits of all pregnant women!"
—Peggy O'Mara, founder,

"As a childbirth educator, birth doula, and midwife, I have worked with countless expecting families. I have longed for a book like Anni's to give them. This book captures everything that a pregnant woman needs to prepare herself for the most beautiful of all her life transitions and honors the trust of birth our culture typically misses."
—Katie McCall, CPM, author of Tyranny of the Cubicle

"Although I was...

Présentation de l'éditeur

In today's western cultures, the typical pregnancy focuses on the baby to the exclusion of the woman herself, so that the entire experience has become more about preparing for the baby's arrival than looking closely at oneself to prepare emotionally for all of the changes that creating a new life brings. Sacred Pregnancy was written to help the pregnant woman journey within herself to prepare for the birth of her baby.

Sacred Pregnancy is a gorgeous four-color book especially created for mothers-to-be to reflect on the many personal milestones of the full gestation period of a pregnancy. With beautiful professional photos that correspond to each topic, Sacred Pregnancy also features a journal space for the pregnant woman to record her thoughts and feelings. Each week the mother-to-be is given information on her baby, her body, and her spirit and is asked to reflect on these via the topic of the week, which touches on a variety of issues such as sexuality, fears about labor, becoming a mother, courage, rite of passage, adornment, body image, meditation, and sisterhood to name a few. Mothers-to-be are invited to look deeply at the issues unique to their journey and find a centered, peaceful place to live their pregnancy fully. Lastly, Sacred Pregnancy includes place for the new mother to record her birth story and a large resource section on various birthing options and supports for pregnant women.

“From the spiritual (how to visualize your perfect birth) to the practical (a large section on birthing options), this pregnancy journal is a spiritual adviser and supportive doula all in one.”

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Beautiful pictures...that's about it... 19 novembre 2013
Par Ale - Publié sur

I was really expecting to be wowed by this book based on all the great reviews but instead I was extremely disappointed. I researched the author and apparently she's not even a doula or midwife, she's just a women who got together with two photographers and decided to a write a book with ideas adapted from the book "Birthing from Within" and illustrated them with beautiful pictures for profit. I went to the Sacred Pregnancy facebook page and was appalled. Like her book, her web-site is also very image driven and extremely shallow. But what really got to me was the level of cultural appropriation she is embedding into her retreats. She is taking other culture's traditions that women have practice for centuries and is turning them into commodities for profit. Very disrespectful and insulting. Anni Daulter is exerting her privilege in dangerous ways but doesn't seem to care because it is making her money. Furthermore, She host training retreats for women who want to become Sacred Pregnancy instructors at ridiculous prices (over $1000)...seriously, why would anyone pay over $1000 to learn how to decorate a candle and a stick? And it seems that most of these reviews are written by women who have taken the workshops and are now trying to establish businesses as Sacred Pregnancy instructors; hence the amazing reviews.

Anni Daulter promotes sisterhood, which I think is great. The sad part is that she wants people to pay for it...that's bs. Actually, I think is sad that women have to pay for someone to show love and care to them during her pregnancy and labor...that's not genuine's just business. Anni Doulter along with many others have are turning human kindness and love into a commodity to generate profit. True friendship, true sisterhood is given for free out of love not for profit.


This book is filled with beautiful pictures, if you are a photographer you'll be in love. I also like that this book focuses on journaling, facing fears and spirituality during pregnancy, which I believe is important and very helpful during pregnancy. I also like the emphasis on sisterhood--getting together with other pregnant women or friends in general is a great way to prepare oneself for pregnancy and parenthood.


The book is very general, watered down, and unauthentic. The author doesn't go into depth on any of the subjects. She focuses on making things look pretty and feel spiritual without giving any real substance. It also feels like an advertisement book- lots of book advertisements and references to expensive shops located in Los Angeles--not very helpful if you don't live in LA (and don't have the luxury to buy expensive unnecessary things). The author also assumes that her readers will be practicing attachment parenting-sleeping with your baby- but doesn't give any research on why one should consider this practice, which I find very irksome and takes away from the book. If she believes that a sleeping with your baby essential important she should state why not just assume that people are just going to do it because she said so. Actually the author doesn't give any evidence to validate any of her claims. Also the recipes that she provides are not good or nutritious. And as a mentioned before, most of these ideas are adapted from the book "Birthing from Within", very unauthentic.

All in all, Sacred Pregnancy is a pretty book filled with ideas on how to make your pregnancy journey look pretty and feel spiritual with beautiful pictures to serve as inspiration. However, it does not give you any good substantial information.

"Even if you've just given birth without this journal, it is a gem for your bookshelf.I had given birth just three weeks before its debut, yet I wanted this for my collection. Sacred Pregnancy, unlike other journals I've owned, goes beyond telling you what you may be feeling, or how big baby is, or what to ask your practitioner. The author does all that AND has prepared a visual feast for your eyes with its choice of textures, color, empowering photography, as well as recipes and journal space with tips and tools. My favorite is the questions that really turn your wheel and inspire you to bond with your baby, love yourself, believe in yourself, and what you think you'll do as a mother.

The photography is so stunning that in the nutritional section I was inspired to eat better. Although it does indulge your sweet and salty cravings also.

This is a book I wish I had before I gave birth the first time. It would have helped me truly prepare. I had the right idea that women do this all the time so I could I, but this journal would have aided my dilemma with my body image, change in romance, to 'can I really do this?' to "oh, that's right I'm going to be a mom!" It keeps your thoughts on track and is like a best friend who has been there and can help you prepare for the most empowering journey as a woman. I did it the hard way but I found my way none the less. This is a treasure I highly encourage you to purchase.

I gave it four stars because some of the recommendations (websites) were to pricy stores. Petunia Picklebottom to start. After she just said that our culture focuses quite a bit on the gear of the baby and preparations for excess rather than on preparing ourselves.

Although you can't please everyone, it does alienate anyone of an organized religion who chooses to avoid anything 'new agey'. This book is exactly MY taste but I though I'd throw it out there to be unbiased.

I encourage you to go into this open minded and purchase. It's priced very fair and it could be life changing.

This book is a beautiful reminder to pregnant woman and it has some nice notes in it for a pregnant woman to keep in mind. However, the nutrition and food part of it are lacking and dangerous. Nutrition for pregnant women is vitally important and was taken seriously in all traditional cultures. But reading the food recommendations in this book it is obvious that the author knows nothing about that. I would highly suggest checking out the work of Nina Planck ("Real Food for Mother's and Baby's and Baby's First Foods") and Sally Fallon ("Nourishing Traditions for Babies and Children"). I can't stress this enough because babies are not born with defects out of nowhere. It always goes back to Nutrition and her downplay of it was surprising. Otherwise the book was cute.

I am a part of Maternally Yours (, a radio show hosted by four women that had the privilege of welcoming Anni onto our show as I was blessed with a live blessing way on the radio last night. The book was gifted to me by the Maternally Yours collective. I spent most of the day diving into this amazing book. It is BEAUTIFUL! I am so thankful to have this book as a loving companion for the last weeks of my pregnancy, helping me to focus my energy and to journal and celebrate becoming a mother of two.

Each week there are words of wisdom about what is happening with your body, your baby and your emotional journey. There are helpful tips and a focused journaling project. The topics are so special, each one honoring the journey into motherhood as a sacred, spiritual journey. The advice feels like it comes from a dear, TRUE friend... it is so genuine and just exactly what you need through pregnancy.

Another nurturing aspect of the book is how absolutely stunning it is! Each week's section is laid out with a beautiful, evocative photo that captures the essence of pregnancy as beautiful and special. The journey is just so beautifully captured by the photographers. Each week also comes with a mantra such as "love is stronger than fear" and "I can feel you and I am connected with you", and having those reminders each week for focusing, meditating and for comfort is just lovely.

I am so thankful to have received this book, and plan to let it nurture me into motherhood of two. You absolutely should let this book be your companion on your journey. I've read so many books on pregnancy, birth and motherhood as a doula and a mama. I've never found an ultimate book to pass on to newly pregnant friends, but this one will now be it. Thank you for such a needed and special book.

This is a MUST for all expecting mamas. I believe as a doula and as a mother, that we sometimes sit back and let the pregnancy float by as we just wait for the Birth. No longer, this book allow you to dive in to the journey of pregnancy and embrace it whole heartedly. All expectant mamas should feel honored and held in the highest regard during this transforming time. Please give your self a gift and purchase this book and FULLY embrace this special time!
