If you have ever had fertility issues you will have probably come across Emma Cannon, one of the UK’s leading fertility specialists. Emma’s first book The Baby-Making Bible was so successful that it has acquired her the nickname ‘the baby-maker’ and now she is back with You and Your Bump, a guide on pregnancy and post-natal care.
All the bases are covered by Emma, from increasing the likelihood of a healthy conception to giving your body the fuel it needs during pregnancy, and advice on how to get through labour. There are tips throughout the book, including how to optimise your fertility, foods to avoid while pregnant and simple recipes that will provide you with the nutrients you will need during your pregnancy. There is also advice on how to deal with common symptoms and problems such as morning sickness and nose bleeds. There are tips provided on pain relief during labour and practical advice such as where you should have your baby. The book also offers support to women who experience a miscarriage. She guides readers through the different types of miscarriage and how to deal with the emotions that come with it. She also gives practical medical advice on how to recover and when to start trying again.
What is really unique about this book is that Emma combines alternative therapies and methods with practical medical advice, known as Fusion Health. She includes meditation, acupuncture, visualisation, positive thinking and yoga to ensure you and your baby are getting the best care possible. Fusion Health uses both Western medicine and ancient Eastern techniques to optimise you and your baby’s health. If you are new to alternative therapies such as acupuncture and meditation you might think that isn’t the book for you, however Emma incorporates these methods along with yoga and positive visualisation in a very encouraging way, making it easy for any reader to understand why these methods will be of benefit. She approaches Fusion Health in a simple and practical way so you will feel comfortable adopting them and can tailor them to your specific needs.
