Pregnancy is a special time in your life, yet it is one of the most natural things that you will very know - so seize the opportunity to feel truly at one with yourself, in body and mind.
While other pregnancy books focus on the baby, 'Blooming Gorgeous' focuses on you, the pregnant woman, and the changes that are happening to you both physically and emotionally. Filled with practical and invaluable tips on how to make the most of pregnancy, it aims to help you to take more time to nurture yourself as you nurture another from within.
Designed to be a source of endless inspiration, this book will help you to understand what's happening to you during pregnancy and to feel positive about the birth. Each of the three trimesters - 1-14 weeks, 15-28 weeks and 29-40 weeks - has a chapter that includes authoritative advice on diet and exercise, body care, staying well and sleeping, as well as all sorts of ideas about keeping calm, pampering ourself and preparing for the birth.
The final chapter, Birth and Beyond, focuses on what happens to you during the climax of pregnancy and concludes with advice on breastfeeding and postnatal care for the new mother.
Wellbeing expert Jo Glanville-Blackburn brings her sense of fun as well as her experience as a mother of three to this valuable book. She believes that pregnancy should be a time to look deeper into your thoughts, to feel good about yourself and to look to the future.
