Product Description

From Library Journal

Written by a London-based homeopath who is the author of The Complete Homeopathy Handbook ( LJ 2/1/92) and who specializes in child care, Homeopathy for Pregnancy, Birth, and Your Baby's First Year reviews in detail homeopathic concepts, techniques, and remedies that can be applied to treatable symptoms and complaints experienced by pregnant mothers and infants. While the book focses on minor conditions that don't require a doctor's attention, such as varicose veins and breastfeeding problems, it is written as a specialized instructional manual that requires the reader either to be familiar with the principles and practice of homeopathy o r willing to devote considerable time to its study. For collections where there is a demand for homeopathic books. Information on pregnancy diagnosis, gestation, prenatal care, nutrition, hazards, and pregnancy complications comprises half of Great Expectations , a concise encyclopedia suitable for a general audience. The remaining half addresses labor, delivery, birth complications, and tests, as well as recovery and postnatal feelings. In its tone, readability, illustration, and organization, this guide compares with Lanie Carter and Lauren Ostrow's The Miracle Year ( LJ 5/1/91). However, readers seeking detailed instructions about infant care and development should consult textbooks by such authors as Penelope Leach, Louise Ames, and William Sears, since this guide provides an overview only.

I started using this book when I was 8 months Pregnant and have used it ever since. I find that I turn to it at least once a week to find a remedy for my family and friends. This is a great book!

I used this treatment for illness for over 35 years. Feb. 4 2014
By R. J. Warfel - Published on
Format: Paperback
The list of illness and disease that my family has been cured of using this practice is too long to mention. To the skeptics, just try Apis Mellifica the next time you get a stung by a bee. Don't criticize what you don't understand. This book is very will done and gives the background behind this noble practice.

Must Have Book for Pregnancy and Motherhood March 27 2005
By athene - Published on
Format: Paperback
Not only does this book give you very specific information on using homeopathic remedies, it focuses on emotional as well as physical symptoms (which is essential to homeopathy). The sections on labor and post-partum are some of the most informative I've read in my pregnancy. Detailed, honest, and non-judgmental, the book covers the myriad and often complicated emotions mothers may encounter during pregnancy and labor, and offers ways to deal with these issues naturally (often with simple practices like taking a bath). This book covers, in detail, several birth complications, and ways the mother can deal with these during labor. This is all done with very easy to read and matter of fact language. No foofy new-age stuff here. I wish every pregnant woman in the world could have the information contained in this book. If you are considering it, BUY IT NOW!

One of the best books I've read so far during my pregnancy Aug. 26 2014
By Heather R - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
One of the best books I've read so far during my pregnancy. Not only quality as a pregnancy book, I thought it was an excellent introduction to homeopathy overall. I will be hard pressed to even loan this book out when my friends/family members become pregnant...
