Description

Pregnancy and childbirth bring about significant physical changes and challenges. Most parents, however, also have spiritual and philosophical
questions that most pregnancy books don't address. Pregnancy, Birth and Beyond covers both the spiritual and practical aspects of having a child.

Erika Gradenwitz-Koehler explains how diet, state of mind and the desire for a child can all affect chances of conception. She gives advice for a healthy pregnancy in body, soul and spirit and helps prepare parents for the physical and emotional experience of birthing. Chapters on infant care include advice for nurturing the spirit, as well as discussing feeding and emotional attachment.

This is a comprehensive but alternative guide to all aspects of conception, pregnancy, birth and infant care.

Reviews

'Throughout Gradenwitz-Koehler beautifully and clearly combines the latest discoveries of science and embryology with the spiritual dimension, showing integrity and sincerity towards the full human being about to be born... She is consistently warm, patient and caring, integrating her research with her life experience which makes us feel safe in her hands. I would recommend this book to all parents and carers and anyone who is considering having children, struggles to become pregnant or finds themselves with a child wondering what on earth to do with them.'
-- Anna Phillips, New View
