Ancient Map for Modern Birth: Preparation, Passage, and Personal Growth During Your Childbearing Year. Pam England, $38.00

The integrative model of childbirth described in this book will provide women with the information needed to prepare for birth, how to think and feel about labor, and how to tell their story. During their childbearing year, women traverse two paths at once: an inner path of psychological and spiritual awareness and an outer path of practical approaches to birth in modern-day culture. The book combines scientific research with meditation, ceremony, art, and mythic stories, which not only prepares childbearing women to go beyond their edge into uncharted territory but to find their way home again. The underlying message throughout is not to strive for a perfect birth but to be mindful of the mythic journey, of all the mothers who have come before — an awareness that leads not only to the birth of a child but to the birth of a new self.


Another Twinkle in the Eye: Contemplating Another Pregnancy after Perinatal Mental Illness. Elaine Hanzak, $48.95

Every year thousands of parents suffer from mood disorders related to pregnancy, birth, and/or postpartum — Perinatal Mental Illness. It follows that at some point affected parents are likely to ask the question 'Do I/ we want another baby?'

The decision to have a child is one that is rarely taken lightly. When a previous pregnancy/early parenthood has resulted in maternal and/or paternal mental illness, then making a conscious decision to have another baby is even more challenging. This guide will support parents and professionals in that decision-making process, and in planning for another pregnancy and the postnatal period if the decision is yes. It will also consider the implications of deciding not to have another child.

Another Twinkle in the Eye is the essential guide for anyone contemplating pregnancy after perinatal mental illness.


Awake at 3am: Yoga Therapy for Anxiety and Depression in Pregnancy and Early Motherhood. Suzannah Neufeld, $24.95

Pregnancy and new motherhood are often thought of as the most joyful, exciting, and blissful times in your life — but they can also be difficult and overwhelming. Yoga therapy offers practical mind-body tools (simple breath, movement, and mindfulness practices) to support you and provide solace, steadiness, and ease in difficult times.

Perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (PMADs) are the number one “complication” of birth. They affect not just moms who suffer, but also the families who care about and rely on those moms. More than twice as many moms suffer from PMADs as gestational diabetes. Yet while robust support and treatment options exist for diabetes, moms who suffer emotionally are rarely acknowledged. Instead of receiving help, they are handed platitudes like “Sleep when the baby sleeps,” “Let go of stress because it’s bad for the baby,” or “Just enjoy every minute because it goes by so fast.” This can be a lonely and confusing place to be — suffering profound fear or sadness at a time when your friends and family expect you to be happy, radiant, and beatifically calm.

As a therapist supporting women's mental health and those recovering from perinatal mood disorders and trauma since 2003, Suzannah Neufeld is keenly aware of the special needs of women during pregnancy and the first year of motherhood. Synthesizing modern psychotherapeutic research with practical yoga therapy, Neufeld offers a compassionate, acceptance-based approach that meets women (and their partners) wherever they are.

Awake at 3 a.m. contains short, digestible chapters that are perfect for when you are feeling exhausted or overwhelmed. Neufeld skillfully dismantles the myths and internal beliefs that contribute to the suffering of new mothers, and tells her own story with honesty and humor. The yoga practices are designed to fit into your life as it is now — no flexibility, mat, special clothes, or 90-minute yoga class required.

Birth and Breastfeeding: Rediscovering the Needs of Women During Pregnancy and Childbirth. Michel Odent, $30.95

Humanity, argues Michel Odent, stands at a crossroads in the history of childbirth — and the direction we choose to take will have critical consequences.

At a time when pleas for the 'humanization' of childbirth are fashionable, the author suggests, rather, that we should first accept our 'mammalian' condition and give priority to the woman's need for privacy and to feel secure. The activity of the intellect, the use of language, and many cultural beliefs and rituals — which are all special to humans — are handicaps in the period surrounding birth. Says Odent:

“To give birth to her baby, the mother needs privacy. She needs to feel unobserved. The newborn baby needs the skin of the mother, the smell of the mother, her breast. These are all needs that we hold in common with the other mammals, but which humans have learned to neglect, to ignore or even deny."

Expectant parents, midwives, doulas, childbirth educators, those involved in public health, and all those interested in the future of humanity, will find this a provocative and visionary book.

Pregnant women are bombarded with "risk factors" they must avoid from the moment the stick turns pink.

A Deeper Shade of Blue: a Woman's Guide to Recognizing and Treating Depression in Her Childbearing Years. Ruta Nonacs, $32.00

Depression affects women almost twice as often as men and while depression may strike at any time, studies show that women are particularly vulnerable during their childbearing years. Dr. Ruta Nonacs, a senior member of the Center for Women's Mental Health at Massachusetts General Hospital and mother of two children herself, confronts the issues of pregnancy-related depression, including:

  • Becoming pregnant while being treated for depression and depression during pregnancy
  • Pregnancy loss
  • Infertility-related depression and the effects of fertility treatments
  • Understanding the effects of maternal depression on spouses and family
  • Postpartum depression and anxiety

Dr. Nonacs also looks at many of the complicating factors that occur during the span of a woman’s childbearing years including education, career, marriage, and child rearing and discusses how depression often takes hold during potentially stressful times. Honest and compassionate, A Deeper Shade of Blue gives women who are experiencing a pregnancy-related depression the information and support they need to realize the best possible outcome.

Do Chocolate Lovers Have Sweeter Babies? The Surprising Science of Pregnancy. Jena Picott, $22.00

Lots of books tell you the basics — "the baby is the size of [insert fruit here]." But pregnant science writer Jena Pincott began to wonder just how a baby might tinker with her body — and vice versa — and chased down answers to the questions she wouldn't ask her doctor, such as:

  • Does stress sharpen your baby's mind — or dull it?
  • Can you predict your baby's temperament?
  • Why are babies born in the darker months of the year more likely to grow up to be novelty-loving risk takers?
  • Are bossy, dominant women more likely to have boys?
  • How can the cells left behind by your baby affect you years later?

This is a different kind of pregnancy book — thoughtful, fun, and filled with information you won't find anywhere else.

Expecting Better: Why the Conventional Pregnancy Wisdom Is Wrong — and What You Really Need to Know. Emily Oster, $23.00

Numbers are not subject to someone else’s interpretation — math doesn’t lie. Economist Emily Oster set out to inform parents-to-be about the truth of pregnancy using the most up-to-date data so that they can make the best decisions for their pregnancies. The results she found were often very surprising.  

Oster debunks the myths of pregnancy using her particular mode of critical thinking: economics, the study of how we get what we want. Oster knows that the value of anything — home, an amniocentesis — is in the eyes of the informed beholder, and like any complicated endeavor, pregnancy is not a one-size-fits-all affair. And yet medicine often treats it as such. EXPECTING BETTER presents the hard facts and real-world advice you’ll need. Any expectant mother knows that the health of her baby is paramount, but she will be less anxious and better able to enjoy a healthy pregnancy if she is informed... and can have the occasional glass of wine.

The latest scientific research on pregnancy, home birth, toilet training, breastfeeding, sleep training, vaccines, and other key topics — to help parents make their own best-informed decisions.

In the era of questionable Internet “facts” and parental over-sharing, it’s more important than ever to find credible information on everything from prenatal vitamins to screen time. Credible scientific studies are out there — and they’re “bottom-lined” in this book. The ultimate resource for today’s science-minded generation, The Informed Parent was written for readers who prefer facts to “friendly advice,” and who prefer to make up their own minds, based on the latest findings as well as their own personal preferences.

The Kind Mama: a Simple Guide to Supercharged Fertility, a Radiant Pregnancy, a Sweeter Birth, and a Healthier, More Beautiful Beginning. Alicia Silverstone, $27.50

In The Kind Mama, Alicia Silverstone has created a comprehensive and practical guide empowering women to take charge of their fertility, pregnancy, and early months with baby. Drawing on her own experience, as well as that of obstetricians, midwives, nutritionists, holistic health counselors, and others, Silverstone offers advice on getting one’s "baby house" in order through nutrient-rocking foods that heal and nourish, and, once pregnant, gentle ways to boost comfort, energy, and health during each trimester.

Like a Mother: a Feminist Journey through the Science and Culture of Pregnancy. Wendela Whitcomb Marsh, $23.50

Like most first-time mothers, Angela Garbes was filled with questions when she became pregnant. What exactly is a placenta and how does it function? How does a body go into labor? Why is breast best? Is wine totally off-limits? But as she soon discovered, it’s not easy to find satisfying answers. Your obstetrician will cautiously quote statistics; online sources will scare you with conflicting and often inaccurate data; and even the most trusted books will offer information with a heavy dose of judgment. To educate herself, the food and culture writer embarked on an intensive journey of exploration, diving into the scientific mysteries and cultural attitudes that surround motherhood to find answers to questions that had only previously been given in the form of advice about what women ought to do — rather than allowing them the freedom to choose the right path for themselves.

In Like a Mother, Garbes offers a rigorously researched and compelling look at the physiology, biology, and psychology of pregnancy and motherhood, informed by in-depth reportage and personal experience. With the curiosity of a journalist, the perspective of a feminist, and the intimacy and urgency of a mother, she explores the emerging science behind the pressing questions women have about everything from miscarriage to complicated labors to postpartum changes. The result is a visceral, full-frontal look at what’s really happening during those nine life-altering months, and why women deserve access to better care, support, and information.

Infused with humor and born out of awe, appreciation, and understanding of the female body and its strength, Like a Mother debunks common myths and dated assumptions, offering guidance and camaraderie to women navigating one of the biggest and most profound changes in their lives.

Mindful Pregnancy & Birth: Nurturing Love and Awareness. Riga Forbes, $16.99

Focusing on the entire journey; from pregnancy through to early parenthood, this guide to living mindfully for expectant mothers helps prepare you for birth and improve your wellbeing with the ancient practice of mindfulness. When we talk about making something, it usually refers to creating, manipulating, or forming a material. In pregnancy, our bodies are wrapped up in doing all of these things at once, and on a grand scale. But in the act of making space in ourselves through mindfulness, none of these things apply. In Mindful Pregnancy & Birth we engage in an act of "not doing". Of not changing, but of simply "being" in the experience of ourselves. Pregnancy is a phase in which to reconcile what has been, with what will become. It is a process, a time of change, and even more so for a first-time mother. It is a recognition of our dreams for the future being in transit, in gestation, in the making.


The Mindful Way through Pregnancy: Meditation, Yoga, and Journaling for Expectant Mothers. Susan Piver, Editor, $19.95 (included CD of guided meditations)

The Miracle Ball Method for Pregnancy. Elaine Petrone, $29.95

The program starts with how to breathe properly, and why focusing on exhalation strengthens the diaphragm and relieves anxiety and fatigue. There are movements for specific problem areas and whole-body moves for total relaxation. There are also variations to use in later months, when it’s no longer advised to lie flat on your back. The final exercises help reshape the body after birth, plus address labor, breastfeeding, and carrying a new baby around.

Origins: How the Nine Months Before Birth Shape the Rest of Our Lives. Annie Murphy Paul, $18.99

What makes us the way we are? Some say it's the genes we inherit at conception. Others are sure it's the environment we experience in childhood. But could it be that many of our individual characteristics — our health, our intelligence, our temperaments — are influenced by the conditions we encountered before birth?

That's the claim of an exciting and provocative field known as fetal origins. Over the past twenty years, scientists have been developing a radically new understanding of our very earliest experiences and how they exert lasting effects on us from infancy well into adulthood. Their research offers a bold new view of pregnancy as a crucial staging ground for our health, ability, and well-being throughout life.

  • The experts — finding and gathering your medical support team
  • Alternative treatments — acupuncture, cognitive behavioral therapy, relaxation techniques, nutrition …
  • The myths — do pregnancy hormones protect women from depression?
  • FAQs — will I be able to breastfeed? Will I pass depression (or OCD, or anxiety) on to my child?
  • Communication — how to talk to family and friends about this issue
