Format: Paperback
Zita West works as a midwife and acupuncturist. Over the years she has observed a growing interest in holistic remedies. This is quite important during pregnancy as women are seeking natural products, non-invasive treatments and drug-free methods of pain relief that will not harm their babies.

She has organized her book, trimester by trimester, so you can follow along and not miss an important aspect of your pregnancy. After all, once the first trimester is over, you are onto the second! In fact, if you are like me, you are reading all these books before even thinking about getting pregnant. Strangely, they seem to be a great form of birth control.

Pregnancy is not as easy as it looks. Sure, for most people, it is easy to get pregnant, but what do you do then?

If you are like many women who want to plan out their lives to the very second in order to taste life to the fullest, you will enjoy this book as it gives detailed information, comprehensive nutrition plans and exercise suggestions. Along with all the information you really need to know, there are also tips on how to boost your immunity or how to minimize morning sickness.

This book also explains your baby's development.

The Contents include:

Planning for Conception & Pregnancy - how to improve fertility, avoid pollution and reduce stress.

Nutrition - Ideally you should be at peak health before pregnancy.

Boosting Immunity - How to eat for health and boost the immune system with pressure therapy.

Illness during Pregnancy - What do you do if you get a cold and can't take any of the remedies you took before you were pregnant.

I enjoyed this book, however, it has too many glossy, unrealistic pictures that take the place of meaningful text. I found the book the Natural Pregnancy Book by Aviva Jill Romm to be much more helpful, insightful and thorough.
PS. Kate Winslet is only in the introduction, a good one at that.

I loved this book when I was pregnant with my son 11 years ago. The information in it at the time was cutting edge- for example Zita West suggests that moms take DHA supplements and this was not commonly suggested at the time, like it is now. I also loved the nutrition and yoga advice and also enjoyed the aromatherapy and alternative health suggestions. That being said, a lot of what is covered in this book is mainstream now (finally!!!) and so it makes this book a good introduction to what is available today, but there more current books that have more exhaustive information. I still like it, but I don't really use it this time around as much as I did the first time i owned it.

I truly enjoyed this book and found it to be invaluable during my twin pregnancy. It is a good resource guide with beautiful photographs; and it is written without the self-righteous tone found in other *holistic-oriented* books. Although I'm not an advocate for the use of the term "natural" (which I think is a rather subjective and broad term), I found the suggested complementary therapies for various pregnancy and post partum related conditions extremely helpful.
