Really nice book. Personal stories, mantras, mudras, activity suggestions for mediation and breathing excercises as well as emotional healing, and general commentary on the miracle of pregnancy and birth. Nice illustrations as well, but not in colour (which I don't mind, but only mention for those who may care)... Builds your confidence in your body's ability to grow and nourish your baby and allows you to take a more conscious and active role/view of your pregnancy.

A friend lent me this book during my first pregnancy. I loved it so much that when I found out I was pregnant again I went a bought it. I read so many pregnancy books, this was the first one that wasn't over baring. I don't agree with everything she believes but I never felt preached at. I think this book is for everyone women. No other book made me feel confident in myself as a woman or so ready for my birth experience.

This is a great book for pregnancy. It if full of wonderful yogic information about pregnancy and birth (much of it is hard to find elsewhere) and is written in a very accessible manner. I enjoyed it so much that I read it cover to cover as fast as I could. I think this is a helpful and comforting book for pregnant women who are new to yoga, experienced in yoga, or those who just want some conscious and uplifting information.

I love this book! Anyone with an open mind and an interest in natural childbirth, yoga, meditation, and women's health in general will find something that speaks to them in this book. I felt so inspired and moved by Gurmukh's story and how she came to view and teach the experience of pregnancy and childbirth in an entirely different light than what we commonly know it to be practised in the "west". I really wish I lived in LA so I could take the pre and post-natal classes at Golden Bridge! In the meantime, this book is a great resource and I have referred back to it many times.

Gurmukh is inspiring. While I was reading, it felt a lot of emotions. I feel that her knowledge brings the best of me.
Un livre inspirant, touchant, avec des exercices pratiques à chaque chapitre. Juste dommage que je ne sois pas près du lieu ou Gurmukh donne ses cours.
This book is the equivalent to a weekend spiritual retreat. All the anxiety and frustration of pregnancy is easily dissapated as Gurmukh explains the natural and beautiful...Read more
