In today's western cultures, the typical pregnancy focuses on the baby to the exclusion of the woman herself, so that the entire experience has become more about preparing for the baby's arrival than looking closely at oneself to prepare emotionally for all of the changes that creating a new life brings. Sacred Pregnancy was written to help the pregnant woman journey within herself to prepare for the birth of her baby. Sacred Pregnancy is a gorgeous four-color book especially created for mothers-to-be to reflect on the many personal milestones of the full gestation period of a pregnancy. With beautiful professional photos that correspond to each topic, Sacred Pregnancy also features a journal space for the pregnant woman to record her thoughts and feelings. Each week the mother-to-be is given information on her baby, her body, and her spirit and is asked to reflect on these via the topic of the week, which touches on a variety of issues such as sexuality, fears about labor, becoming a mother, courage, rite of passage, adornment, body image, meditation, and sisterhood to name a few. Mothers-to-be are invited to look deeply at the issues unique to their journey and find a centered, peaceful place to live their pregnancy fully. Lastly, Sacred Pregnancy includes place for the new mother to record her birth story and a large resource section on various birthing options and supports for pregnant women. "From the spiritual (how to visualize your perfect birth) to the practical (a large section on birthing options), this pregnancy journal is a spiritual adviser and supportive doula all in one." --Fit Pregnancy magazine For more information, visit the Sacred Pregnancy website.

Now there is a hopeful, painless, and low-cost approach to infertility written by a hypnotherapist who has successfully helped women achieve pregnancy by removing blocks in their subconscious mind. There are many infertility-specific issues blocking the mind's subconscious that affect body functions and health. Women with a vague diagnosis of "unexplained infertility," and even those who have been diagnosed infertile due to minor physical issues, find that the mind can remove many physical and emotional barriers that aren't significant enough to cause permanent infertility. Hypnosis is simply gaining access to the subconscious mind—the place that holds all our psychological "blockages." Reprogramming the information going to our body's cells can be a complementary process to any fertility path a woman has chosen. This heartening guide can also benefit any woman undergoing assisted reproductive technologies, those looking for alternatives to these procedures, or for women who are just beginning to think about planning a family and want to prepare themselves for pregnancy.
