Drawing on the author's own personal triumph over infertility, Conceiving Healthy Babies is a unique herbal guide geared to helping couples achieve balance in preconception, pregnancy, lactation and beyond.
Conceiving Healthy Babies was written by our own author-in-residence, Dawn Combs, along with her husband Carson Combs. Carson wrote a compelling forward for the book, detailing his own experience through their shared struggle in infertility. This is incredibly personal to the couple that started Mockingbird Meadows and is why the farm came to be what it is today.
From The Back Cover of Conceiving Healthy Babies
Healthy babies don't just happen. The lifestyle of the prospective parents is a crucial factor in promoting fertility and ensuring a successful pregnancy. But the average North American diet is saturated with processed foods, and environmental toxins are rampant - we must take responsibility for what we put into and onto our bodies to create optimum conditions for the childbearing year.
Drawing on the author's own personal triumph over infertility, Conceiving Healthy Babies is a unique herbal guide geared to helping couples achieve balance in preconception, pregnancy, lactation and beyond. Its individualized approach to fertility explains the importance of:
- Understanding, accepting and celebrating our own bodies
- Basing our diets on organic, nutrient-dense foods that have been traditionally prepared
- Using whole plants in their original form for their medicinal benefits.
Packed with detailed information on hundreds of different herbs, with a focus on their roles in building healthy babies, this comprehensive manual is a roadmap to wellbeing. The reference guide is rounded out by complete information on herbal use before, during and post-pregnancy, and special attention is paid to supporting nursing and lactation. Whether you have experienced challenges in conceiving or just want to ensure that your pregnancy is as natural and uncomplicated as possible, Conceiving Healthy Babies is an indispensable guide.
