Pregnancy Miracle Review by a Licensed Midwife
I absolutely promise that not only is this course of miracles easy to read, but its core focus is music to my alternative health ears. The author offers great advice-listen to your body, keep your own fertility charts and be empowered and in charge about what comes next.
She educates and inspires the reader to correct any health imbalances, from detailed information on fasting and cleansing, to intricate details of Chinese medicine that will appeal to those that like to self-treat (it’s also just as easy to get an idea of what your imbalance might be, and then go see a good acupuncturist to confirm and treat.)
Creating this crucial balance in the body can solve not only fertility problems, but menstrual and hormonal problems as well. Seemingly unrelated issues, like preterm birth are also discussed, and I was pleased to see that as we tend to think it is “different” than infertility because there is already a baby! But, as she explains (and as I agree), women that experience preterm births are often just as imbalanced as those that experience infertility and miscarriage. That was fascinating to me, to consider preterm birth as a variation of infertility.
At first it sounds strange, but if you read about Chinese Medicine and how the different body systems are affected (in pregnancy, infertility, etc.), you will understand how one imbalance can create a multitude of problems.
Titled Pregnancy Miracle, this book is truly for any woman in her childbearing years. As a veteran “patient” of Chinese medicine, I can personally attest to the amazing improvement I have experienced receiving acupuncture. Most of my experience comes from the postpartum period (although I do get acupuncture when I am pregnant).
It is my firm belief that every woman who has ever been pregnant needs to get her body back on track this way! A good acupuncturist is amazingly deft at linking all kinds of seemingly unrelated symptoms or complaints-and in the postpartum, I usually find myself with quite a few! Headaches, appetite, strange bleeding-my amazing acupuncturist sees these symptoms, of mine among others, as a spleen deficiency. Why spend the time and money to correct it? Well, I feel better, I sleep better and my hormones line up very quickly. A spleen deficiency, according to my acupuncturist, is not just common after birth but almost typical.
Neglecting to rebalance in this way could cause hormonal issues and even miscarriage-as the spleen is the organ to “hold the baby.” This is all to say that balancing in all the ways this author recommends is not optional-but vital!
Two particular points of encouragement and interest that are discussed are age and fertility and some new fertility technology. Anyone deemed “old” by the medical world will find solace in this text; Chinese medicine, in particular, does not site “old age” as a fertility deterrent!
