I have been attempting to read this book for quite a while.
When I was pregnant with Ethan I checked it out from the library. I didn’t read the whole thing, but what I did read, I liked. At that point, my whole focus was on natural living and natural pregnancy/childbirth. I don’t necessarily regret that, but my whole view of things has changed over the years.
I bought it as a book to read and review for my course and it has been pretty brutal. Not only do I disagree with most things, I find that it gives bad advice and isn’t the best thing to share with clients. I couldn’t even finish it because it was that bad to me.
I’m thankful that I have plenty of other books to choose from to read.
The next one that I’m going to be reading is called Your Medical Mind: How to Decide What is Right for You. I think this is more up my ally. I want to teach women about their bodies and the process of labor and childbirth, but I want them to learn how to make the right decisions for them. That’s what was lacking in the natural pregnancy book. It was very one-sided.
The only thing I agreed with in that book was her thoughts on pregnancy weight gain and nutrition. So I guess I got a little bit out of it!
I’m also almost finished with the Physiology in Pregnancy section of module two. I’m just re-reading it since it has been a long time since I read and studied it the first time. My trainer has told me that since I made such good scores on my quizzes in the past, and I will be revisiting the info when I create my course, to not focus too much on it at this point. So I’m reading a little bit every day and just trying to enjoy it!
I cannot wait to share what I learn!
