A mindful pregnancy is a spiritual initiation for the mother-to-be. Filled with unique insights into the spiritual nature of pregnancy, Spiritual Pregnancy takes the expectant mother (and her loved ones) along a heroine's journey of discovery. Each trimester correlates to a stage of the epic journey where emotional, spiritual, and physical connections heighten the reader's awareness of herself and her unborn child, and where the mundane and everyday are elevated to the sublime and transformative. With extensive training and experience in both traditional Western medicine and allopathic wellness, board-certified OB/GYNs Shawn Tassone and Kathryn Landherr have created a book filled with insights, guided meditations, and journaling exercises. This wonderful guide also includes yoga postures created by well-known doula and pregnant-fit yoga instructor Jennifer Wolfe.
