About The Book
From Genevieve Howland, creator of the Mama Natural blog and YouTube channel, comes a “must-read, comprehensive guide that empowers moms-to-be” (Vani Hari, New York Times bestselling author) with week-by-week support to natural pregnancy.
For the last half-century, doctors have controlled childbirth. Many pregnancy guidebooks are conventional, fear-based, and written by male physicians deeply entrenched in the old-school medical model of birth.
But change is underway. Women are taking back their pregnancy and childbirth and embracing a natural way. Now, Genevieve Howland, the woman behind the enormously popular Mama Natural blog and YouTube channel, has created an inspiring, fun, and informative guide that demystifies natural pregnancy and walks moms through the process one week at a time.
In this revised and updated edition, Howland includes the latest research and weekly advice and tips for a healthy pregnancy, detailing vital nutrition information, natural remedies for common and troublesome symptoms, as well as the appropriate (and inappropriate) use of interventions.
Peppered throughout are positive birth and pregnancy stories from women of all backgrounds along with insights from experts including registered nurses, certified midwives, doulas, and lactation consultants. Encouraging, well-researched, and fun, The Mama Natural’s Week-by-Week Guide to Pregnancy and Childbirth is an essential companion for women everywhere to embrace natural pregnancy and reap all the benefits for both baby and mama.
Genevieve Howland is the woman behind Mama Natural, the web’s most popular blog and YouTube channel for natural pregnancy and childbirth. Her work has been featured on The Dr. Oz Show, Daily Mail (London), Newsweek, and more. The Mama Natural Week-by-Week Guide to Pregnancy and Childbirth is her first book. The author is donating ten percent of her net income from this book to charities that support maternal and children’s health.
