Following their bestselling guide to natural preconception health care, The Natural Way to Better Babies, Francesca Naish and Janette Roberts help prospective parents take the next step to a natural, drug-free, stress-free pregnancy.

In today's society, pregnancy is often regarded as a medical rather than a natural event. The Natural Way to a Better Pregnancy restores the natural order by reaffirming pregnancy as a normal, healthy part of life to be enjoyed, not endured.

The food you eat, the lifestyle you lead and the environment you live in can have a profound effect on the physical, mental and emotional wellbeing of your baby. In the first practical guide to a natural pregnancy, two internationally recognised Australian experts show you how to give your baby the best possible start in life.

The Natural Way to a Better Pregnancy includes essential advice on:

Introducing natural alternatives to your daily routine
How to detoxify your body and eat well for a healthy, happy baby
Creating a clean and healthy environment
Avoiding everyday exposure to radiation, lead, insecticides and toxic chemicals Herbs, essential oils and acupressure points to use (and avoid) during pregnancy
Massage, meditation and learning how to relax
How to head off stress and fatigue
Yoga, stretching and strengthening exercises
Natural remedies for allergies and infections
How to make informed decisions about antenatal testing
Plus an invaluable resources list, glossary, index, and much, much more ...

Naturopath, herbalist, hypnotherapist and bestselling author of Natural Fertility, Francesca Naish runs Australia's only clinic dedicated to helping people conceive naturally. Janette Roberts is a pharmacist and clinical nutritionist who specialises in preconception health care at one of Australia's first wellness centres.
