The Kind Mama: A Simple Guide to Supercharged Fertility, a Radiant Pregnancy, a Sweeter Birth, and…

by Alicia Silverstone

RODALE BOOKS | April 15, 2014 | Trade Paperback

The Kind Mama: A Simple Guide to Supercharged Fertility, a Radiant Pregnancy, a Sweeter Birth, and a Healthier, Mo is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.

When did making babies get to be so hard? Infertility is on the rise globally, affecting as many as one in six couples. But instead of considering diet and lifestyle factors, doctors pump their patients full of expensive and invasive fertility treatments. Once pregnant, women just accept that carrying a baby will be the gassy, swollen, irritable, sleepless nightmare that has become the new normal--and then assume that new motherhood will be just as challenging, from breastfeeding woes to screaming fits.

It doesn't have to be that way. In The Kind Mama, Alicia Silverstone has created a comprehensive and practical guide empowering women to take charge of their fertility, pregnancy, and first 6 months with baby. Drawing on her own experience, as well as that of obstetricians, midwives, nutritionists, holistic health counselors, and others, Silverstone offers advice on getting one's "baby house" in order through nutrient-rocking foods that heal and nourish, and, once pregnant, gentle ways to boost comfort, energy, and health during each trimester. She helps readers navigate everything from prenatal testing and birth plans to successful breastfeeding and creating a supportive "baby nest." The result is an authoritative, one-stop guide that empowers women to trust their instincts during this vital milestone, while helping them embark on a healthy and more vibrant path to motherhood.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great book if you're a hippy like me! This is a great book if you are wanting to go the all-natural, holistic, vegan, organic approach to raising healthy children. Albeit it's a bit extreme, so take what you can from it. I'm a big fan and big believer in this type of stuff though...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Seriously? Just what every mother needs, another celeb telling them how to be the perfect mother. Right down to the beauty photo on the front page. Mothering for most is somewhere in between the horror described in the first paragraph and the zen beauty zone offered.

Editorial Reviews

A unique and positive statement about how wonderfully well pre-birth, pregnancy, birth, and child raising can be experienced. Not only do you need this book, but I needed this book.
