Product Description:
 

Most doctors are trained to think of a “good” birth only in terms of its medical success. But Dr. Anne Lyerly knows firsthand that there are many other important elements that often get overlooked. Her three-year study of a diverse group of over one hundred expectant moms asked what matters most to women during childbirth. The results, presented to the public for the first time in A Good Birth, show what really matters goes beyond the clinical outcome or even the usual questions of hospital versus birthing center, and reveal universal needs of women, like the importance of feeling connected, safe, and respected.
 
Bringing a new perspective to childbirth, the book’s wisdom is drawn from in-depth interviews with women with a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences, and whose birth stories range from quick and simple to complicated and frightening. Describing what went well, what didn’t, and what they’d do differently next time, these mothers give voice to the complete experience of childbirth, helping both women and their healthcare providers develop strategies to address the emotional needs of the mother, going beyond the standard birth plans and conversations. Transcending the “medical” versus “natural” childbirth debate, A Good Birth paves the entryway to motherhood, turning our attention to the deeper and more important question of what truly makes for the best birth possible.

Product Description:

Childbirth is more than an event that makes a woman a mother. This journey was designed to be a spiritual milestone that draws every woman’s heart back to the only Deliverer. “Angie Tolpin has honored all of us by giving the world a book that guides, inspires, explores and reconsiders that there is a Grand Design in childbirth. Redeeming Childbirth honors God’s Word and speaks truth that families can and should remember His presence in the birth room.” ~Barbara Harper, RN, CLD, CCE, Founder of Waterbirth International and author of Gentle Birth Choices “Angie casts a beautiful vision for making Christ the center of your pregnancy and childbirth. Shedding light on areas of frequent idolatry in our own birth plans, Angie calls out the disunity amongst Christian sisters over birth methods. Through her own birth stories and those of others, Angie shows how God can be glorified in hospital rooms and birthing centers as well as home-births. ~Gretchen Louise, editor at Young Ladies Christian Fellowship “Redeeming Childbirth is a much-needed blessing for families and churches. I long for the day when I can buy a stack of this book, ready to bless each new expectant mother with what she really needs: encouragement from a sweet friend, spiritual wisdom, and guidance to trust in God.“

- coping with possible medical complications 
The First Few Weeks

Praying Through Your Pregnancy shows a mother how to provide an early head start for her child through the power of prayer. With fresh spiritual insight, each chapter reveals what is happening with the baby’s development that week, starting with the very first moment of conception, when God begins the creation of either a boy or a girl. Readers will learn how the confidence they place in God affects the healthy development of their precious growing baby, and how to reduce their own stress and anxiety by looking to the Creator. In this interactive guidebook, the author shares excerpts from her pregnancy journal as an encouragement for women to write their own thoughts and feelings, and each chapter ends with a “Mother’s Prayer” and “Scriptures for Meditation.”

Product Description:


Would you like to start eating healthy but feel like a busy schedule always gets in the way? 
  • What you eat has a direct effect on your baby's development. 
  • It is therefore more important than ever, now that you are pregnant, to eat a healthy diet with the right nutrients. 
  • Eating unhealthy food can rob your baby of vital nutrients and even cause complications − now or after birth. 
  • By eating healthy, you provide your child with the best possible chance for a healthy and happy life. 
Knowing what to eat when pregnant can be difficult, however. 
Motivating yourself to eat healthy and finding time to cook with a busy schedule can be even more challenging. 
That is why I've put together this book, which teaches you about everything: from which nutrients your baby needs to how you can cook healthy food quickly and easily. 
Through simple descriptions and entertaining information you will learn about what to eat and what to avoid, during your pregnancy.

Product Description:

Susie Mitchell is a 37 year first time mom to a lovely vibrant baby girl Tori. Always enjoying the challenge of trying her hand at different sports, she discovered track cycling in July of 2011. After failing to make her mark in anything from shot putt to surfing, it finally seemed she had found something she was good at. Then two months later she became pregnant. Having set her sights on competing in the World Masters Track Cycling Championships the following October, she needed a plan. It would come four months after the birth and she wanted to be ready to give a good account of herself. Wanting to train properly throughout her pregnancy, she looked for and found lots of advice – but was alarmed at how conservative views on exercise were during this time. The advice of "gentle jogging or easy swimming" wasn’t appealing. Being both a vet and scientist with a background in research she decided to look into it herself and focus on what the science said as her guide.

Now the actress best known for her role on Law and Order shares what she hasn’t yet: the full story of how in-vitro fertilization allowed her to have a child, how talking about infertility helped her cope with it, and how her desire for a baby and the difficult path that led to one taught her about herself and made her into the woman she was meant to be.

Product Description:

Are you feeling stressed about your pregnancy and the upcoming childbirth? 
Do you worry that your stress will hurt your baby? 
We all want this to be a calm and happy time in our life, but for many women pregnancy is a stressful experience. 
Don't let it get to you. There is a simple and efficient technique that you can use to deal with your stress. 
  • Stress can hurt both you and your baby. While you might struggle with insomnia and depression, your baby could suffer from malnutrition and an increased risk of birth defects. 
  • Stress during pregnancy can even cause preterm labor or a miscarriage. Studies have also shown that babies born to stressed-out mothers tend to follow suit and grow up to be anxiety-ridden adults. 
Your mood is already affecting your baby, so don't wait to make a change. 
 
Like you, I found pregnancy very stressful. Every day I worried that I wouldn't be able to cope with my new role as a mother and that my childbirth would be terrifying. 
I was constantly worried and anxious. It was then that I began using the positive affirmations technique and I found that my mood improved almost immediately.
