Description

“I wish I’d known that when I was pregnant!”

It’s a feeling all parents know: wanting to keep our children safe and thriving in an ever-changing world. What happens during pregnancy sets the stage for the rest of a child’s life, so the Green Mama is here to help make this period healthier, happier, and safer for both mother-to-be and baby.

Swollen ankles? Difficult birth? Postpartum depression? Most expectant parents think, It won’t happen to me! But from conception through to birth, families today aren’t getting what they expect — or expecting what they get.

The Green Mama explores a variety of sources, from the latest scientific and medical research and advice to traditional wisdom, to find out what issues, decisions, and avoidable dangers have the greatest impact on our children’s health. She brings together this combined wisdom to demystify epigenetics, the microbiome, a healthy pregnancy diet, toxin-free living, pregnancy exercises, herbal remedies, natural birth, healthy postpartum care, and many of the other mysteries of modern birth and parenting. Through gentle guidance, humour, and a trove of specific advice from dependable sources, Green Mama-to-Be is the essential guide for today’s mothers- and fathers-to-be.
