Description 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

This book has some of the worst nutritional advice I've read for pregnant women. She condemns fat/fatty foods, advises pregnant women to eat low fat, vegetarian diets, and continually uses the entirely different substances 'folate' and 'folic acid' interchangeably. Folic acid is the synthetic form of folate, which can actually cause the birth defects that adequate intake of folate will prevent. The strangest part is she talks about the gene mutation that some women possess that the folic acid will disagree with and be more likely to cause birth defects, yet she still recommends folic acid. It's very confusing if you don't already know about this gene mutation and the difference btw the 2 forms of this vitamin. The other thing that screamed out to me was that she states that an underweight woman with a BMI of 18.5 and below can gain anywhere from 8-40lbs in pregnancy and it is considered a healthy weight gain, while every other BMI had a more acceptable sounding weight gain. I hope everyone who is underweight talks to a more knowledgeable care provider first before listening to this advice! Her recommendation for margarine as a healthy source of fat in the diet, WOW. Can definitely tell that his woman knows nothing about nutrition. She also knows nothing about vitamin A and there was so much misinformation under this heading that I am providing a link with accurate info or this review would just be entirely too long: I am not sure why the book states that it is a guide to an "organic" pregnancy, as the only "organic" advice it gives is to buy as much of your food certified organic as possible.
Secondly, I have read previous editions of her book, and she has taken out a lot of the herbal advice and natural remedies that she used to put in her books. I do not know if this is because she is now a MD, whereas before she was a midwife and herbalist, and maybe now she believes more in western medicine than natural therapies? Or if new studies have shown her previous advice to be wrong? I do not know, but thought it odd. It still does have some good advice on the use of herbs, which is why I gave it 2 stars rather than 1. However, there is no more information on additional natural remedies such as homeopathy, chiropractic, or accupuncture, to name a few, all of which can be very beneficial to pregnant women. This book is not your one stop shop for all alternative therapies for pregnancy by any means! This book also lacked citations and resources as to where her information was coming from or where one could go to learn more, other than the very occasional footnote citing a source.
If you want a well researched book on pregnancy and birth written by a naturally minded MD, I highly recommend Gentle Birth, Gentle Mothering by Sarah J Buckley. Almost 1/4 of the thickness of this book is her huge list of resources with specific quotes and references to a multitude of studies in every paragraph throughout. "The Natural Pregnancy Book" does not hold a candle to "Gentle Birth, Gentle Mothering"! For nutritional advice and just a fun read, I highly recommend Real Food for Mother and Baby by Nina Planck. Another great, well researched book on birth is Ina May's Guide to Childbirth by Ina May Gaskin. I'd say read Nina Planck's book first if you have the time, as it has the most to do with pregnancy, the others have more to do with the time closer to birth and beyond! Although Nina's book does cover breastfeeding and babys first foods as well, which you can always go back to. Anyway, these are my top 3 most recommended books for my pregnant mama's, enjoy!

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.

Very good if you are trying to avoid over processed stuff and traditional medicine, some of the things are really hard to do, but it gives you a good overview of the natural way.
