An Organic Pregnancy

by Tiffany in Birth & Baby, Book Reviews

Organic Pregnancy Book

While being pregnant is thrilling, the responsibility of a growing baby can provoke anxiety about what is and isn’t safe. In The Complete Organic Pregnancy, Deirdre Dolan and Alexandra Zissu address how you can minimize your exposure to the invisible toxins that surround us—in everything from food, cleaning products, and cosmetics to furniture, rugs, air, and water. Step by step, they tell you where dangerous chemicals are lurking, why it’s so important to avoid them when pregnant, and what you can do before, during, and after your pregnancy to protect your child.

In this exhaustively researched book, the authors (calmly) talk parents-to-be through everything from the safest laundry detergent to which crib mattresses contain toxic flame retardants. You’ll find out how to choose the right face cream, plastic water bottles, household cleaners, types of fish, and much more—all with an eye toward keeping you and your baby safe and healthy.

The Complete Organic Pregnancy also features a collection of personal diaries from well-known writers and organophiles, including Barbara Kingsolver and Marion Nestle, as well as recipes from organic chefs. Required reading for anyone heading into this exciting stage of life, The Complete Organic Pregnancy is your chance to make a difference for your children, even before they’re born.

    I’m almost 2 months pregnant and I’ve always been somewhat of a fitness nut. I’m glad that I’m finding alot of information out on the web about my pregnancy and especially getting back into shape after my pregnancy. Not only about fitness but all the great stuff I’m learning about pregnancy!
