I’m excited to share with you the new trailer for my latest book The Kind Mama: A Simple Guide to Supercharged Fertility, a Radiant Pregnancy, a Sweeter Birth, and a Healthier, More Beautiful Beginning, coming out next April (but you can pre-order it now). Check out the debut on SheKnows.com.
About The Kind Mama
When did making babies get to be so hard? Infertility is on the rise globally, affecting as many as one in six couples. But instead of considering diet and lifestyle factors, doctors pump their patients full of expensive and invasive fertility treatments. Once pregnant, women just accept that carrying a baby will be the gassy, swollen, irritable and sleepless nightmare that has become the new normal — and then they assume that new motherhood will be just as challenging, from breastfeeding woes to screaming fits.
It doesn’t have to be that way. In The Kind Mama, Alicia Silverstone has created a comprehensive and practical guide that empowers women to take charge of their fertility, their pregnancy and the first six months with baby. Drawing on her own experience as well as that of obstetricians, midwives, nutritionists, holistic health counselors and others, Silverstone offers advice on getting one’s “baby house” in order through nutrient-rocking foods and gentle ways to boost comfort, energy and health during each trimester of pregnancy. She helps readers navigate everything from prenatal testing and birth plans to successful breastfeeding and creating a supportive “baby nest.”
The result is an authoritative, one-stop guide that empowers women to trust their instincts during this vital milestone while helping them embark on a healthy and more vibrant path to motherhood.
