In our society childbirth is often viewed as something to be feared and even to be avoided, through elective caesarian or extreme pain suppression. In this uplifting book Kristina Turner applies esoteric knowledge to show practical ways of transforming a difficult experience into a positive and deeply spiritual one. Kristina looks closely at the physical processes that take place in the body during pregnancy and childbirth, as well at explaining the facts behind hospital procedures and options for home birth -- providing readers with the necessary knowledge to make their own choices. She feels that birthing should be viewed as a unified process, from the nine months of pregnancy through labour to the many months of breastfeeding; all three stages contribute to developing the bond between mother and child and the child's emotional function. Kristina writes beautifully about the sacred mystery inherent in conception and pregnancy, and guides the new mother towards being a conscious participant in the spiritual process of bringing life into this world. This book is both very practical and hugely inspiring.

I love it!" - Jeanne Ohm, DC ICPA Executive Coordinator and family wellness practitioner; Mother of 6 "Natural Pregnancy, Natural Baby" is a well thought out compendium for the expectant mother, put together by an author who has first hand knowledge of the process and can back it up with the right dose of research and scientific background thus allowing the reader to critically sort through the advice and opinions available whether or not they choose a natural pregnancy. One can read the book from front to cover or simply pluck out the passages or chapters most relevant to ones situation. From getting a recipe using herbs to counter iron deficiency or clarifying the nutritional supplementation guidelines, to describing & illustrating exercises to facilitate the birth process, Dr Rosenberg ́s book shines a light on the myriad of alternatives and empowers the reader to not only enjoy the fruits of ones ‘labour’ but to savor the ride as well.
