Publisher's Summary

Congratulations on your pregnancy and the journey you are about to embark on! If you are pregnant or planning a pregnancy, then this audiobook will be an asset to your journey. In practical wording and presentation, this audiobook is designed to take you through the complete step-by-step process from pregnancy to conception, breastfeeding, diapering, and beyond. 

It's split up into two parts: 

Part I - "Pregnancy and Childbirth". This section will help you prepare for the “whys and wherefores” of symptoms, along with some tips to help you cope. If you are confused about the tests you will require through pregnancy, look no further; this audiobook has a thorough guide to the relevant blood tests and antenatal scans. 

Nutrition in pregnancy is vitally important for mother and baby. Excess calories, in the way of fats and sugar, can cause gestational diabetes and birth complications. This guide will help you understand the dietary requirements of pregnancy and covers foods that should be avoided. 

Exercising may not always be at the forefront of your mind when pregnant; especially in the initial stages, if suffering morning sickness, or the late stages, when just standing can be a chore! Along with diet, exercise can help maintain a healthy weight throughout pregnancy. However, not all exercise is advised. This book will guide you through which exercises you can safely continue and the ones to avoid, until after pregnancy. 

What you need to buy for the baby, and when, can be an expensive consideration. You will find practical help, with regards to the items necessary to buy before the baby is born and what can safely wait until later. Remember, it's not just baby to consider; Mum will need a few things, too! 

Part II - "Breastfeeding, Diapering and Circumcision". Whether you know absolutely nothing about breastfeeding, diapering, or circumcision, this section will assist you immensely. 

Here, you will learn about infant feeding, baby circumcision, and much, much more.

Good first time book

I bought this book for my sister who is just about to have her first baby and she really enjoyed it. It gave her some great facts tips for the first time mom and had easy to follow advice. Great for the first time mom because it gave you some things that you wouldn't have thought of otherwise.

Not too preachy, and very informative.

There is nothing else out there quite like this book. It's a totally comprehensive and easy to digest guide to natural childbirth. It's not too hippy, not too preachy, and very informative.

Enjoyed this book a lot. I hope a lot of mommies decide to get this book. It gives good feedback. Wish I had listen to it when the postpartum depression started. Amazing feedback. I will most likely listen to it again.

This book is really fun. I already knew a lot of this information but it is making pregnancy more exciting. Would be a really good book if you're newer to natural pregnancy and childbirth ideas and want to learn more in an easy to understand way.

This book is well written.

This book is well written. I felt like I had a good grasp of what to expect when having a baby just by listening to this book. I think the only point I'd like to make is that the book left me a little worried and burdened about giving birth. Maybe I just wasn't ready to hear everything like it is.

FIVE stars

This book is huge. Definitely covers more than any other week to week guide, like preconception and postpartum. Plus it's the only natural guide available - contains so much valuable health info. Love it.

Great guide to what you're not told

Being pregnant is one of the scariest and most amazing things in the world. I know it sounds crazy to be scary but amazing at the same time, but it truly is. There are so many books on the market that will tell you all the amazing things of being pregnant but none of the actual things that will happen - changes to your body, how your hormones will be affected, and what to expect after giving birth.
