Présentation de l'éditeur

The bestselling author of The Kind Diet offers practical solutions for a healthier, more vibrant approach to new motherhood

When did making babies get to be so hard? Infertility is on the rise globally, affecting as many as one in six couples. But instead of considering diet and lifestyle factors, doctors pump their patients full of expensive and invasive fertility treatments. Once pregnant, women just accept that carrying a baby will be the gassy, swollen, irritable, sleepless nightmare that has become the new normal—and then assume that new motherhood will be just as challenging, from breastfeeding woes to screaming fits.

It doesn't have to be that way. In The Kind Mama, Alicia Silverstone has created a comprehensive and practical guide empowering women to take charge of their fertility, pregnancy, and first 6 months with baby. Drawing on her own experience, as well as that of obstetricians, midwives, nutritionists, holistic health counselors, and others, Silverstone offers advice on getting one's "baby house" in order through nutrient-rocking foods that heal and nourish, and, once pregnant, gentle ways to boost comfort, energy, and health during each trimester. She helps readers navigate everything from prenatal testing and birth plans to successful breastfeeding and creating a supportive "baby nest." The result is an authoritative, one-stop guide that empowers women to trust their instincts during this vital milestone, while helping them embark on a healthy and more vibrant path to motherhood.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Book for Moms or Moms-to-Be that are even a little bit interested in Attachment, Peaceful and/or Natural Parenting 11 juillet 2014
Par DC1014 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Love this book even though I may not agree with everything in it. She provides a breath of fresh air to the mothering/parenting book community which demands the purchase of endless "baby stuff" (Alicia is a minimalist). Great support and advice for those going through fertility issues and for moms who are interested in breastfeeding and a more natural, kind, loving perspective on parenting. Overall, she is a mama that believes in connection and love for babies, which is beautiful. I especially love that she had the courage to discuss circumcision, which many shy away from. Loved where she said " If little boys were supposed to have their penises 'fixed,' did that mean we were saying that God made the body imperfect? He made all this incredible stuff, and then he just happened to make the penis wrong?"--that SO resonated with me. The nutrition advice and her reverence for the beauty of the human body and soul were inspiring to me, and I would recommend this book wholeheartedly.

Side note: Alot of people are giving the book negative reviews because of a tiny section on vaccinations, where she really just encourages you to do your own research. I understand people have strong opinions on this and even though I ultimately disagree with Alicia on vaccines, it didn't take away from the awesomeness of the book for me. Actually, I think it's kind of silly to expect to read a book and agree 100% with an author, unless that author is me!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Don't Judge by the Headlines: There's a Lot of Good Info and Advice in The Kind Mama 2 juillet 2014
Par Catherine at HealthPod Baby - Publié sur Amazon.com
Alicia Silverstone has generated a lot of online buzz: with her earlier books (The Kind Life and The Kind Diet) and her interviews on nutrition and parenting. (Her interview discussing chewing her food and feeding it to her baby went viral: I know a lot of moms who do that, they just won’t admit it!) Her goal in The Kind Mama is quite simple: to share her healthy, natural and gentle beliefs and practices on getting pregnant, experiencing pregnancy and childbirth, and raising your newborn.

This pregnancy book is anything but traditional: it looks at many traditional practices and beliefs that young women challenge, and provides an alternative. Women who are searching for a healthier lifestyle for their families, and instructions on how to achieve that lifestyle, are going to welcome this book.

So what’s the controversy?

- Meat, dairy and sugar are nasty foods that cause disease, may harm your baby and should not be eaten (p18)
- Silverstone is against drugs during delivery: Just Say No (p93)
- Honoring your placenta by eating it is natural in many cultures and provides many nutrition benefits (p138)
- Lying-in is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunities for new moms to bond with their baby and get back in shape (p175)
- And of course: vaccinations. Silverstone is generally against most - but not all - vaccines but does advise where to get your baby vaccinated

Silverstone clearly is not afraid to take a stand: these are her opinions, but she’s has found many credible professionals to support her opinions. She provides explicit instructions on how to be a Kind Mama and to follow her philosophies through all stages from trying to conceive through baby’s first 6 months. (And in all honestly, sometimes that’s all moms need: we know what to do, sometimes we just can figure out how to do it! Silverstone does more than share her theories, she gives you the information and tools to put them into practice.)

Silverstone’s advice covers nearly all aspects of pregnancy and birth and includes:

- prioritizing the relationship between the mama and the papa: especially the sexual relationship. She’s all for sex: as long as the mama is all for sex.
- pregnancy and delivery facts moms don’t like to talk about like diarrhea and sore lady parts
- breastfeeding, boobs and bottles
- children don’t require expensive educational toys to develop: creative play and interaction stimulates intelligence and the family bed, co-sleeping and how to buy and outfit a crib

Silverstone clearly is not afraid to take a stand: these are her opinions, but she’s has found many credible professionals to support her opinions. She provides explicit instructions on how to be a Kind Mama and to follow her philosophies through all stages from trying to conceive through baby’s first 6 months. (And in all honestly, sometimes that’s all moms need: we know what to do, sometimes we just can figure out how to do it! Silverstone does more than share her theories, she gives you the information and tools to put them into practice.)

If you’re in agreement with Alicia Silverstone’s philosophies on how to be a Kind Mama - or at least interested in hearing some of them - this book is very easy to read and understand and follow.

- Her tone is extremely friendly, as if you’re getting information from a trusted girlfriend
- The book is well organized and easy to follow: with extensive notes and references
- Appendix I is filled with 30 pages of her favorite recipes, including baby food recipes
- Appendix II has many natural remedies for common ailments

As with any parenting guide, every parent should read the information, and decide what is right for their family. A healthy diet and lifestyle are certainly a reasonable goal: you simply may not agree with all of Alicia Silverstone’s ideas on how to achieve a healthy lifestyle.

We review many parenting books at HealthPod.ca, and this is worth a read!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I wish I had this during my pregnancy 31 mai 2014
Par ap2cheer - Publié sur Amazon.com

While a lot of the dietary info is the same from The Kind Life, there is so much more in here that I wish I would have had when I was pregnant. Great resource for natural, vegan remedies to common pregnancy side effect, and great resources for delivering and raising a kind kid. I've already used her reading suggestions and found some great new resources for parenting my little one. I've got bookmarks in here waiting for the next pregnancy. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to be a natural mama, even if you aren't vegan!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A point of view from someone who actually read the book 4 juin 2014
Par Lauren G - Publié sur Amazon.com
Love her approach to parenting. I disagree on the vaccination advice to some degree, but the people who wrote so many one star reviews (none of which are amazon verified by the way--suspect!) clearly didnt read the book because this is about far more than vaccinations. It is about being attuned to your child. Far few parents are these days, and kudos to her for spreading kindness.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 It's mostly good 8 mai 2014
Par E. Gersch - Publié sur Amazon.com
I was very excited to read this book as a vegan healthcare professional. I lean to the left and was very open to what Alicia had to say. On the whole, this book has lots of good, solid advice. If I weren't a vegan already I would seriously consider that path after reading this book.

The science used at the beginning of the book is excellent and peer-reviewed. The rest of the book... take it or leave it. She basically just talks about avoiding medicinal interventions and anything toxic.

I was tempted to give a one-star review for her tiny blurb on vaccines. She did not say outright "Don't vaccinate your baby!" but she pointed readers to several anti-vaccine sources. Measles kill 1.1 million children each year, and that disease could be eradicated by vaccines, just as smallpox was eradicated. We have already saved billions of lives (and medical dollars) because of vaccines. I am a hippy-dippy, granola-crunching, bike-riding vegan. I am also convinced by science. Please, for the sake of the human race, vaccinate your children. If you do not, your child could get measles or whooping cough, then the disease would mutate and all previous vaccinations would be useless. You endanger EVERYONE by not vaccinating. You could also kill your child. It's the most selfish choice anyone could make, in my opinion.

The recipes in the back were pretty mediocre. I made a couple and hated them. They were a bit tasteless. I felt the same way about recipes in The Kind Diet, though. I have had much better success with Blissful Bites and Veganomicon.

She talks about having an amazing pregnancy, but then admits to feeling horrible and nauseous for 6 months. I've never been pregnant myself (I need at least 5 more years of freedom), but it seems a little silly that she makes a ton of suggestions to combat nausea and then says they never really worked for her. Her suggestions are ones you could find anywhere - use Seabands, drink ginger tea, try aromatherapy, etc.

It's a nice read if you want to feel connected to other earth-mamas. If you are already a vegan and have read any books about pregnancy, this will probably be redundant.
