A great read for the modern parent! It's what I would recommend to
my own friends to read- Abby Epstein, Director The
Business Of Being Born
Beyond having a seemingly encyclopedic knowledge of all things pregnancy, birth, and baby, Erica Chidi Cohen truly cares about the wellbeing of all mothers, babies, and partners. This book is for everyone-regardless of their birth preferences, background, or beliefs. The knowledge my husband and I gained reading this book has us feeling prepared, empowered, and ready for whatever lies ahead.- Whitney Port, author, fashion designer, and television personality
Erica is one of the warmest, kindest women I know, so it's no surprise that Nurture reveals how to take gentle care of yourself during pregnancy, childbirth, and motherhood (as you gradually develop what she calls your mother muscle). Nurture supports all different approaches-home births, epidurals, breastfeeding, bottle feeding-so you can choose your own path with Erica's reassuring advice. It's like having an expert doula and friend at your fingertips. I'd recommend this book for the nightstand of every expectant mother.-Joanna Goddard, founder of the women's lifestyle website Cup of Jo
Erica's loving, practical, and judgment-free approach is rich in useful, calming advice. I have no doubt that you'll love having Erica's comforting voice guide you through this extraordinary, exciting journey.-Harvey Karp, MD, FAAP, author of the DVD/book, The Happiest Baby on the Block, and The Happiest Toddler on the Block
What a gift to new and expecting moms. You have no idea the mountain and rollercoaster you're about to embark on, but Nurture somehow gives you a peek in and gives you essential information to help ground you.- Catherine McCord, founder of Weelicious and One Potato
