Learn how to create the healthiest environment for your baby by eliminating potentially harmful habits and substances from your body and your surroundings wherever possible.

Find practical, actionable advice for all pregnant women about practices like essential oil therapy, plant-based nutrition, relaxation techniques, and pregnancy-safe exercises—along with guidance for when it's best to stick with traditional medicine—so you can develop your own unique pregnancy and childbirth experience.

The Natural Pregnancy Guide includes advice about:

  • One size does not fit all—Explore both medicated and non-medicated birth plans, detailing the pros and cons of each, and the circumstances that may shape your decisions.
  • Cleansing your system—Discover gentle ways to "detox" by making healthy choices about personal care products and avoiding or eliminating toxins in your living and working spaces.
  • A multi-part approach—Learn the importance of establishing healthy habits before moving on to specific guidance for managing the challenges you may encounter during your pregnancy.

This companion book will guide you through each step of your pregnancy consciously and safely—just as nature intended.
