Sunshine Coast Chiropractor, Dr. Stacey Rosenberg, has released her first book “Natural Pregnancy, Natural Baby – Natural Remedies for Pregnancy, Birth and Post-Partum Discomforts.” Dr. Stacey and her staff have been providing chiropractic care in Gibsons, BC since March 2001. While pregnant with her second child in 2006, she expanded her practice into an integrated health clinic called the Gibsons Health and Wellness Centre®. That same year, she also got inspired to write a book on natural pregnancy by the wealth of information provided by the local midwives and Bellies and Babies network as well as additional professional training that Dr. Rosenberg undertook. Many hours of ‘labour’ later, it is finally ready! “Natural Pregnancy, Natural Baby” is 150+ pages of prevention, tips, techniques, remedies, and resources to help ease the common complaints of pregnancy, birth and the post-partum period. It includes nutrition, pre-natal bonding, comfort measures, herbs, homeopathy, ergonomics, chiropractic, acupressure, yoga, breast-feeding advice, Hypnobirthing® and much more!

I love it!" - Jeanne Ohm, DC ICPA Executive Coordinator and family wellness practitioner; Mother of 6 "Natural Pregnancy, Natural Baby" is a well thought out compendium for the expectant mother, put together by an author who has first hand knowledge of the process and can back it up with the right dose of research and scientific background thus allowing the reader to critically sort through the advice and opinions available whether or not they choose a natural pregnancy. One can read the book from front to cover or simply pluck out the passages or chapters most relevant to ones situation. From getting a recipe using herbs to counter iron deficiency or clarifying the nutritional supplementation guidelines, to describing & illustrating exercises to facilitate the birth process, Dr Rosenberg ́s book shines a light on the myriad of alternatives and empowers the reader to not only enjoy the fruits of ones ‘labour’ but to savor the ride as well. The pleasant bonus of this book is that its audience, in addition to those involved in welcoming a baby and their caretakers, expands to all individuals who have an interest in preventative and natural care or merely wish to use complementary methods to enhance their own health and wellbeing. - Ingrid Ferrer, BSc., BSc.(clinical), DC.

Pregnancy is a major life event. As a mother, you want to know all there is to know about your pregnancy. Dr. Tamyra Comeaux, a practicing Obstetrician and Gynecologist, developed The Definitive Guide to Natural Pregnancy Health to help mothers take the right steps toward a healthy, natural pregnancy. There aren't a lot of resources for pregnant women looking for ways to treat their problems using orthomolecular medicine. This is a school of thought encouraging the use of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids to create balance in the body. Dr. Comeaux combines multiple resources into one easy-to-use guide, so expecting mothers can optimize their use of supplements to combat common and uncommon pregnancy ailments. Dr. Comeaux has found that prenatal vitamins, while they are a good start for any pregnancy, cannot be administered in a "cookie cutter" fashion. Women enter pregnancy having different levels of stress or medical issues that should be remedied by more or less of a particular nutrient. Many women are taking over the counter products or prescription medications before they become pregnant and question continuing these supplements for fear that they may harm the baby. Over the course of her many years of private practice, Dr. Comeaux has compiled numerous articles, studies and specific cases with her patients in order to make her findings available to a wider audience of responsible, soon to be mothers. The guide describes a variety of different supplements, lists common problems that she has encountered in her practice, and details the maximum amount of each supplement to be taken during a healthy pregnancy. Dr. Tamyra Comeaux is an obstetrician and gynecologist practicing in Houston, TX. She is a Fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology. She has a Masters Degree in Holistic Nutrition.
