Product description


"The advice in The Wise Woman’s Guide to Your Healthiest Pregnancy and Birth is invaluable, hard to find elsewhere, and simply a precious gift to moms and our future generations.”

—Elissa Epel, PhD, coauthor of The New York Times bestseller The Telomere Effect

“I experienced firsthand Patricia's unparalleled talent, as both an athlete recovering from injury, and as a new mother navigating how to safely regain my strength. This book weaves together the most critical information for any woman embarking on the journey of motherhood, regardless of stage or age. I have no doubt it will become essential reading for generations.”

—Jenna Lee Babin, journalist and founder of SmartHer News  

“Having too often witnessed the dis-ease of pregnancy, my hope is that The Wise Woman’s Guide becomes integrated into all aspects of a woman’s clinical care, from preconception to postpartum. This book speaks from a place of wisdom, and its holistic approach has been the spark for innumerable healing journeys in athletes, patients, and especially mothers. The foundational approach to breathing, movement, and nourishment in this book provide the basis for the journey of a lifetime."

—Brian Hainline, MD, NCAA chief medical officer, professor, New York University Department of Neurology, co-editor, Neurological Complications of Pregnancy

The Wise Woman’s Guide to Your Healthiest Pregnancy and Birth made me want to have another baby, even though I already have three boys! All too often, pregnancy is a time filled with fear and trepidation when it should be a period of magic, wonder, healthfulness, empowerment, and confidence. The insights, medically founded advice, holistic perspective, and sheer wisdom inside this book are delivered with strength and grace, providing words women must hear as they embark upon pregnancy.”

—Laura Gentile, senior vice president of marketing, ESPN, and  founder, espnW --This text refers to the paperback edition.
