In today's western cultures, the typical pregnancy focuses on the baby to the exclusion of the woman herself, so that the entire experience has become more about preparing for the baby's arrival than looking closely at oneself to prepare emotionally for all of the changes that creating a new life brings. "Sacred Pregnancy" was written to help the pregnant woman journey within herself to prepare for the birth of her baby.

Review Quotes:
"Pregnancy is such an amazing time in a woman's life and should be honored and valued. "Sacred Pregnancy" helps empower women and encourages them to personally reflect on their internal process before having children. This is a beautiful gift to all pregnant women!"
--Ricki Lake, actress, and Abby Epstein, filmmaker, "The Business of Being Born"
""Sacred Pregnancy" provides vital information in a framework that is crucial for women and families embarking on the tremendous adventure and responsibility of birthing new life. An important reference that you will keep next to your bed throughout your pregnancy."
--Alisa Donner, MSW, LCSW, cofounder, Pregnancy Awareness Month
"I wish I had read "Sacred Pregnancy" when I was pregnant instead of the dozen books I had to piece together to try to make sense of it all. Anni Daulter has created what should be the new standard for today's mom: birth journals, labor workbooks, pregnancy memoirs, and holistic wisdom. It is gentle and enlightening, and lays the foundation for what we know helps women have the labor and birth they want and deserve: support, self-knowledge, and empowerment."
--Mayim Bialik, actress
"I have never read such an in-depth, affirmative and warm book about our power as women in birth. "Sacred Pregnancy" is unique--instead of focusing outward on what we need, it draws us inward to honor the tools we inherently have. This book is a must-have journal and keepsake for the sacred mama-to-be in your life."
--Rachel Myers, Green Hugs, healthy-home and green-nest advocate
""Sacred Pregnancy" brought tears to my eyes. This book brings the outward and inward experiences of pregnancy together in such a powerful and beautiful way. Anni Daulter has documented such important milestones that happen to each and every pregnant woman during pregnancy and offers connective ways to go deep within each step of the way. Connection and healing are such important aspects of pregnancy that very often get overloo

In today's western cultures, the typical pregnancy focuses on the baby to the exclusion of the woman herself, so that the entire experience has become more about preparing for the baby's arrival than looking closely at oneself to prepare emotionally for all of the changes that creating a new life brings. "Sacred Pregnancy" was written to help the pregnant woman journey within herself to prepare for the birth of her baby.
"Sacred Pregnancy" is a gorgeous four-color book especially created for mothers-to-be to reflect on the many personal milestones of the full gestation period of a pregnancy. With beautiful professional photos that correspond to each topic, "Sacred Pregnancy" also features a journal space for the pregnant woman to record her thoughts and feelings. Each week the mother-to-be is given information on her baby, her body, and her spirit and is asked to reflect on these via the topic of the week, which touches on a variety of issues such as sexuality, fears about labor, becoming a mother, courage, rite of passage, adornment, body image, meditation, and sisterhood to name a few. Mothers-to-be are invited to look deeply at the issues unique to their journey and find a centered, peaceful place to live their pregnancy fully. Lastly, "Sacred Pregnancy" includes place for the new mother to record her birth story and a large resource section on various birthing options and supports for pregnant women.
"From the spiritual (how to visualize your perfect birth) to the practical (a large section on birthing options), this pregnancy journal is a spiritual adviser and supportive doula all in one."
--"Fit Pregnancy magazine"
