Mama Glow- what can I say? Divine! Incredible! Inspiring! When Latham isn't busy empowering you or enlightening you, she's informing you and reassuring you. I gave it one read- and bought seven copies for all the beautiful prego mama-to-bes I know. I'm a new mommy and know that everything she utters imposes truth! Holistic but reflecting realism, with crucial wisdom delivered in a hip-girlfriend way, its the NEW birthing bible. Toss your antiquated "What to Expect..." nonsense and grab this gem. She's a gifted writer, a wonderful storyteller, a compassionate and spiritual leader! If you miss this book, you're missing out on aspects of your process that are so key to the mommying journey. I have absolute respect and adoration for this book and it's talented, brilliant, empowering mama who birthed it, Latham Thomas!

Ok so I am not a mom and I don't want to be a mom, but I really love this book! I know that may sound strange, why someone who doesn't want children would be reading a pregnancy guide. But Mama Glow is so much more then your average pregnancy guide.

I actually bought this book for a friend who was thinking about having a baby. But once I started reading through it I decided to keep it and ordered a second copy. What I loved the most was the whole concept of making room in your life for your pregnancy. Cause really that can apply to anything, a new relationship, a career, etc... We are all giving birth to something and Mama Glow is a beautiful guide on how to create that space in your life both physically and mentally.

I am also a huge nutrition buff, and this book is packed full of it! Every chapter has tons of nutrition tips. And she also includes a really great detox diet that would be good for everyone, not just mamas. Plus there are tons of recipes! I mean tons! I've already made a bunch of them and they are delicious. Her Goji Sunset smoothie is my personal favorite.

This book is definitely meant for Mamas, and Mamas to be, but it doesn't mean that a single woman still can't get a lot out of it. Between the recipes, meditations, yoga, and nutrition, there is something for everyone.

Just finished reading Mama Glow: A Hip Guide to Your Fabulous Abundant Pregnancy by Latham Thomas {MAMA GLOW herself}. If you want to feel, empowered, healthy, vibrant and whole before, during and after pregnancy this is the book for you. The praise, credentials, maternal advocacy and experience alone are enough to inspire a blissful and abundant process. I especially love her holistic approach to everything from stress, common discomforts, beauty and nutrition. The "GLOW" is possible and the secret is in these pages. Thank You Latham Thomas for this gift to all women!

Nature and our bodies are always communicating with us. We've just forgotten how to listen. So trust and move into the unknown; that's where the magic begins."

-from Mama Glow by Latham Thomas

I've read numerous pregnancy handbooks and guides and Latham Thomas' Mama Glow: A Hip Guide to Your Fabulous Abundant Pregnancy is at the top of my list of favorites. It is a must-have for moms-to-be, even before conception. With an abundance of practical life-style and self-care practices, nutritional tips, woven together with empowering affirmations and words of wisdom, Latham Thomas shows mothers how to nourish their bodies as well as their minds and spirits.

Mama Glow is divided into five parts. Part one covers the importance of wellness before conception, offering guidelines for internal cleansing as well as tips for clearing your external environment in preparation for this sacred journey. Part five provides valuable information for after the delivery of your precious baby. In between, you will find a wealth of knowledge to help you feel good and look fabulous throughout each stage of your pregnancy. The appendices contain additional resources, including a detailed birth plan and great recipes. So far, the cranberry-curry couscous and the gingerly mashed sweet potatoes with lime are two of my favorites.

This was a fun to read book even though I'm not expecting a bundle of least not the newborn kind. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is planning a pregnancy. It makes a great gift as well.

Mama Glow was a great book to read for advocating a healthier pregnancy. I liked the layout, tips, and categories - incorporating mind, body, and spirit (and YOGA!). However, sometimes the author writes in a way that seems like she was the "perfect" pregnant woman - which doesn't feel empowering when you're craving potato chips and feel like a failure because you spent your day on the couch. Also, unless you want to buy out an entire health food specialty store, a lot of the recipes and beauty tips are impractical, esp. on a budget. The website (so far) doesn't provide the "tips" it says it does. All that said, I did enjoy reading it and found it a useful collection of base knowledge for getting me started on a healthy pregnancy and lifestyle.

UPDATE: I emailed the author of the book using the "contact" link from the website around the time I first reviewed this book (over a month ago) asking about the website "tips" that the book refers to. I have yet to receive a response. I will let you know if/when I do.
