A fresh, new pregnancy guidethe first complete functional medicine bookoffering women and their partners a comprehensive approach to maintain and enhance health and wellness before, during, and after pregnancy.
The Wise Woman's Guide to Your Healthiest Pregnancy and Birth combines the expertise of top-tier physical therapist Patricia Ladiswho works with superstar athlets, professional dancers, and celebritieswith holistic ob-gyn Dr. Anita Sadaty, a highly regarded ob-gyn with connections to celebrities like J-Lo. Together, they have devised a six-step protocol beginning the six months before conception continuing forty days post-birth and beyond, incorporating holistic principles that encourage optimal wellness for mother, partner, and baby. Whether they are in their 20's, 30's or 40's, this book empowers readers to be in tune with their bodies during all stages of pregnancy, and is the first book by a functional medicine dream-team aligning medical and structural body issues to avoid such potential pregnancy outcomes as osteoporosis, sciatica, pelvic prolapse, structural weakness, and postpartum depression.
Each of the six stages organizes Ladis and Sadaty's holistic principles into five easy-to-follow aspects: Body, Movement, Breathing, Nourishment, and Wisdom. They include practical applications such as foods to help reduce internal inflammation, specific exerciseswith instructive photosin each stage, breathing techniques to lower stress, and "pearls of wisdom" backed by science exploring a multicultural history of this special time in a woman's life. For the first time, a pregnancy guide considers the importance of choices you make six months prior to conception, and the effect on genes. When both members of a couple are calm, fit, and well-nourished, the latest science suggests that together they are less likely to pass on negative genes to a child.
