In Parenting by Heart, Pinky McKay encourages parents to trust their own instincts, and connections with their children. Practical advice is offered with Pinky's trademark humour and covers birth choices, breast-feeding, postnatal depression, sleep, crying, gentle discipline, and building self-esteem (yours and your child's!). Along the way Pinky gives excellent advice for dealing with unwanted inquiries from family and friends.

love this book. packed with useful things to know for new parents... practical as well as emotional aspects of the first year after birth. good to know what to expect and what responses are most beneficial long term... to avoid the oh so often damage otherwise done by clueless best intentions. love the narrator too - great pace to easily follow and a very pleasant accent!

This course reveals the tools and knowledge you need to have a fulfilling birth, with little to no pain. All of this you can do in the comfort of your own home and at your own pace. The Hypnobirthing Home Study Course is a complete birth education course. You can be fully prepared for your best possible birth experience. There is no need to attend any other hypnobirthing or birth preparation class, as this is a course that covers natural birthing, alternative options, and the best interventions.

This book has is not just a tool to help you relax in your birth (thus eliminating pain) but also a mine of information on medical aspects of birth, thus helping you be prepared for many possible hospital situations, allowing you to make the best choices at the time. It gives a balanced account of many medical interventions - benefits and risks (whereas hospital may omit mentioning the risks) and thus helps you understand why natural birth is best. Knowing what effect interventions have on the baby is a great motivation for me to focus on relaxing and thus give my baby a calm start in life.
I only wish I found this book earlier...

In this groundbreaking book, Alanna Collen explores the extraordinary world of the powerful microbes that make up 90 percent of the human body. You are just 10 percent human. For every one of the cells that make your body, there are nine impostor cells. You are not just flesh and blood, muscle and bone, brain and skin, but bacteria and fungi. You are not an individual but a colony of microbes. Far from being passive, the trillions of microbes that live on and in you are intimately involved in running your body.

One of the most informative books I've ever come across. I particularly liked the realistic scientific approach and avoidance of dogmatic statements found in many books relating to modern diseases and/or diet. Very easy to follow and grasp the concepts of this new field of science that exploration of microbiota has opened up. The very pleasant uk accent of the reader was just an additional cherry on top :-)
