From Library Journal
Written by a London-based homeopath who is the author of The Complete Homeopathy Handbook ( LJ 2/1/92) and who specializes in child care, Homeopathy for Pregnancy, Birth, and Your Baby's First Year reviews in detail homeopathic concepts, techniques, and remedies that can be applied to treatable symptoms and complaints experienced by pregnant mothers and infants. While the book focses on minor conditions that don't require a doctor's attention, such as varicose veins and breastfeeding problems, it is written as a specialized instructional manual that requires the reader either to be familiar with the principles and practice of homeopathy o r willing to devote considerable time to its study. For collections where there is a demand for homeopathic books. Information on pregnancy diagnosis, gestation, prenatal care, nutrition, hazards, and pregnancy complications comprises half of Great Expectations , a concise encyclopedia suitable for a general audience. The remaining half addresses labor, delivery, birth complications, and tests, as well as recovery and postnatal feelings. In its tone, readability, illustration, and organization, this guide compares with Lanie Carter and Lauren Ostrow's The Miracle Year ( LJ 5/1/91). However, readers seeking detailed instructions about infant care and development should consult textbooks by such authors as Penelope Leach, Louise Ames, and William Sears, since this guide provides an overview only.

I am a student of classic Homeopathy.
my first birth lasted 3 days, 22 hours in the hospital with epidural, pitocin and more.
second birth? 3 hours at home, 25 minutes in the hospital - no drugs at all!
i read all the chapters and got into it, and like other people who wrote reviews here - i use it all the time with both my kids, friends, husband and myself.
the book is user friendly, you have huge list of complaints and which remedy fit them. and wide description of the symptoms that fit each remedy - to make sure you chose the right one...
in our family we try to avoide as much as possible the use of drugs - this book helped us so much!
