It wasn't until I was pregnant that I became overly conscious of how much I only wanted to have positive things around me; people, food and energy! I also saw how easy it is to think of birth as a series of decisions that someone else is making for us. But we women are powerful and almighty and Mama Glow helps show us just how empowered we can be all the way throughout this glorious time in our lives! -- Alicia Keys, Grammy award winning artist
In this book, Latham Thomas takes you through every stage of pregnancy as your certified "glow-pilot," giving you practical advice and action steps to make your journey a joyful and vibrant experience. Beginning with Wellness B.C. ("Before Child"), Latham shows you how to make room for your pregnancy, assess your current diet, banish toxic habits, and incorporate yoga and contemplative practices into your life. Next you'll focus on the first trimester, when your body starts to change-along with all the common discomforts she'll show you how to alleviate. Section three looks at the second trimester, with tips for finding a health-care provider for your baby, reducing stress, creating healthy meals for you and your "bun," and Glow Potion beauty essentials.

In section four, she focuses on the final trimester: preparing for birth, labor coaches, birth plans, comfortable yoga postures, and an explanation of the anatomy of labor and birth. Ending with the postpartum section, Latham guides you back to your pre-baby body and gives tips for breastfeeding, optimal nutrition as a new mom, and stepping into the new you-navigating motherhood.
