Author(s): Erica Chidi Cohen
In this book, Erica Chidi Cohen, founder of LOOM (a center in Los Angeles providing support services to mums-to-be and new mums), doula, and chef, walks readers through preparing for motherhood from a holistic, comprehensive perspective. Nurture focuses on everything from the relationships between baby, mother, and partner; to nutrition, exercise, and self-care practices; the birthing process, breastfeeding, the post-partum shift, and caring for the 0 to 3-month-old baby. Chidi Cohen aims to offer all-encompassing answers to overarching questions about birth and the mothering experience, including how to have ease in pregnancy, curate birth preferences, find balance as self-identity changes, and be a successful mother and partner through the transition into motherhood.
Nurture is friendly, non-judgmental, non-denominational, and gently straight-talking; it includes worksheets and lists; features 40 charming and useful reference illustrations (yoga poses, birth positions, fetal development); and it provides credible comfort and insight.
