Why endure morning sickness, fatigue, back ache and mood swings when there is a wealth of self-help remedies and complementary therapies that can relieve these problems?
From her wide experience of treating pregnant women, Denise Tiran explains how the therapies that she knows to be effective - everything from acupuncture to yoga, from aromatherapy to homeopathy - can be used to treat the everyday discomfort that can make pregnancy miserable. Why not try a witch hazel compress to alleviate varicose veins, osteopathy to relieve heartburn and indigestion or an avocado oil massage to reduce stretch marks.
Denise also describes how these therapies can help if you suffer from conditions such as diabetes and anaemia during pregnancy, and how they can be used in preparing for the birth, coping with labour and dealing with post-natal discomforts and looking after your new baby. Altogether, this is an essential companion for the pregnant woman.
