Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

For women who are tired of glib answers and dumbed-down advice, Caylie See has written this pragmatic, insightful, and straightforward guide to finding the best information, resources, and foods to nourish their pregnancies. Balancing Eastern and Western medical perspectives, remedies, and recipes, See outlines the various symptoms that women might experience from month to month, in the typical order that they appear, and addresses the explanations for each symptom from both a Eastern and Western viewpoint before going on to offer what medical research has to say about the symptom, mainstream solutions, and time-tested traditional Eastern remedies and recipes, with a modern spin. Women who feel excited, overwhelmed, terrified, or just plain curious about their prenatal journey and who want to use natural food and plant-based remedies for happier, healthier, and more comfortable pregnancies will find a trustworthy, enjoyable, and comprehensive guide in this book.
