Essential Books and Recommended Reading
Fertility, Pregnancy & Childbirth
Welcome to my pregnancy collection. On this page you will find links to books I recommend, which you can purchase directly from Fishpond online bookstore in New Zealand and Australia, or from Amazon in North America.
In my experience, once on these sites it pays to search for other copies of the same book, to help you find the best deal.
Ruth Trickey - Women, Hormones and the Menstrual Cycle: Herbal and Medical Solutions from Adolescence to Menopause
Is it cheating to talk about your book collection if it's your wife's book? I hope not. Ruth Trickey is perfect if you're looking for a more scientific reference book for how a woman's body ticks. I wouldn't make this my only reading during or leading up to pregnancy (not that I personally could) because I believe a woman needs to be focussed on nurturing books, but it's excellent if you just need to know more.
Sheila Kitzinger - The New Pregnancy and Childbirth
Sheila Kitzinger has a host of books on natural childbirth techniques and information. I've found her work easy to read, informative and highly useful, especially for first-time parents.
Marie Gagne - 29 Ways to Keep Your Children Toxin Free: Eliminate the Toxic Chemicals from Your Children's Environment
Parents are often afraid of self-diagnosing or home treatment methods for their children, but one thing everyone can do is to provide a safer environment. Not until you become aware of the chemicals your children are exposed to every day can you begin to protect them from unnecessary exposure.
Janet Goodrich - Perfect Sight the Natural Way: How to Improve and Strengthen Your Child's Eyesight
I was fortunate to meet Janet Goodrich at a Body Electronics seminar about a year before she died. She was a very passionate and well-informed lady. She had been a student of Body Electronics back in the '80's before turning to natural vision improvement programs, where she has helped thousands regain their vision without glasses. I included this one because kids can be turned around in easy and fun ways.
Janet Goodrich - How to Improve Your Child's Eyesight Naturally: A Thoughtful Parent's Guide
This is the companion book to the one above.
You may also be interested in the books I recommend on detoxification.
