I'm finding it incredibly difficult to find any good natural pregnancy books.  I already have

-Having a Baby Naturally (nice for first time parents)

-Dr. Sears Pregnancy Book (Loved it, but bored with it after 3 previous babies)

 

I want something that goes month by month through baby development in the womb, changes for the mother, things to expect and do, etc.  BUT on a more naturally minded level.

 

Everything I see on Amazon is mostly childbirth books, and I've got that covered.  I just want something new and different to read relating to pregnancy itself.

 

Any reccomendations?

You might like meditation for pregancy by Michelle O'Neil.  It has week by week what's happing with the baby and mother, tips, mediation and a meditation cd, so a sort of week by week pregancy but without lots of picks of women giving birth on their back and scare stories about tests!

I really like "The Whole Pregnancy Handbook" by Joel M Evans, MD, OB/GYN. " an obstetricians guide to integrating conventional and alternative medicine before, during, and after pregnancy.

I really liked this book. I had no choice but a hospital birth & this was particularly helpful for having a natural birth in the hospital. It's not a month by month however.

The Natural Pregnancy Book by Aviva Jill Romm - not a month by month, but very comprehensive, lots of herbal recipes/natural solutions for all the usual and unusual pregnancy issues.  Most of the week by week books I have encountered are all pretty mainstream and my natural books just tend to talk about trimesters. So don't know if it is any help but the book by Romm is really good if you are into natural.
