Orecchio and Buckley take the guesswork out of pregnancy with their guide for women conceiving naturally after age 30. In fact, this is a great guide for women of all ages who are looking to become mothersand it's also a great source for fathers-to-be. Orecchio and Buckley's approach blends modern and traditional holistic medicine to help mothers create the "five-trimester plan" (the three trimesters of gestation, plus preconception and postpartum) that will work best for their own pregnancy. Much of the book emphasizes clean eating, explaining that what a woman puts into her body directly affects her health and the health of her baby. The co-authors take mothers and fathers through different experiences, both good (e.g., ways to share the joy of parenthood) and bad (e.g., hormonal changes that cause discomfort). In addition, they provide ample resources, including recipes, assessments, remedies, helpful web resources, and personal stories from other parents. What truly sets apart Orecchio and Buckley's work is their tone, which focuses on understanding and reverence for the human body, and their use of research to give expectant parents all the tools to make informed decisions. This guide is truly a must-read for anyone considering getting pregnant or expecting a child. (Oct.)
