Portrait of a Starter: An Unhidden Story gI want a baby inside me An organic baby I loved this book and wished I had read it BEFOREetting pregnant It is a valuable resource for trying and EXPECTING MOTHERSA SEMI RELATED TED TALK mothersA semi related TED Talk toxic babyhttpswwwtedcomtalkstyronehaye I was intrigued by the idea of this book since I am vegan and do try to live as organically as one can but I thought The Complete Organic Pregnancy was
A Bit Lacking I Was Looking For Thoughful Guidance Or bit lacking I was looking for thoughful uidance Or Least Information Than least information than had already athered from friends and the Internet to take my organic practice a bit further but this book is really a beginner s very basic uide to organic and natural options for pregnancy and childbirth If you are starting from suare one knowing very little about food and environmental issues maybe this would be a ood starting point I was hoping for a book with ood relevant advice for pregnancy This book was ok at that but not reat Some of it has a very alarmist tone which is completely unhelpful especially when it comes to environmental toxins Minimize your exposure sure but anyone reading this book lives in the modern world where it is impossible to avoid all the bad stuff 100% of the time I wish the authors had taken a balanced viewpointParts of this book were somewhat outdated To be fair organic has Moonrise gotten far mainstream in the years since this book was published It s no longer difficult to find organic food or beauty care products since they are readily available at Target and Walmart So the lists of websites to source products are largely unnecessary for a reader in 2019The anecdotal essays were both my favorite parts and least favorite depending on the author and topic But they personalized the subject in a way the authors didn t always I especially like one near the end that basically had the attitude of we try and we re not perfect and that s ok This book wasreat I bought it for myself and no one recommended it I just saw it and picked it up very soon after I found out I was pregnant The first section of the book is about what you should do before you Fallen Angel: The Passion of Fausto Coppi get pregnant the second during your pregnancy and the last section is after the baby is born A lot of the suggestions in this book I was already doing however it did make me a little a LOT neurotic about chemicals and made me have insomnia for a few weeks worrying about all the things I had already done wrong and how terribly I ve poisoned my baby This is because Iot the book after I found out I was pregnant and like all new pregnant While being pregnant is thrilling the responsibility of a rowing baby can provoke anxiety about what is and isn't safe In The Complete Organic Pregnancy Deirdre Dolan and Alexandra Zissu address how you can minimize your exposure to the invisible toxins that surround us in everything from food cleaning products and cosmetics to furniture rugs air and water Step by step they tell you where dangerous chemicals are lurking why it's. ,
Austive lists of chemicals not very fun reading On the other hand the sections on cleaners and beauty products are probably the most useful in the book and the parts that I will o back to as I finish purging my own house of these sources of carcinogens estrogen imitators and neuro toxins Besides these sections I was surprised at how little new useful information this book offered for pre pregnancy and pregnancy There was actually a lot about post partum such as making your own baby food whether to use cloth or disposable diapers etcThe personal essays were a bit hit and miss for me In a way it felt like a bit of a cop out from the authors allowing them to produce less content themselves for the book Some of the essays were very helpful while at least one could be perceived by some as mildly offensive This book covers everything about making your home and personal self natural and organic Good advice for creating a healthy environment in your home whether you re pregnant or not It is organized into three sections transforming pre conception rowing pregnancy and living babyhood In each section the authors cover food home environment work environment
