Book Review- Your Baby, Your Way
We are pleased to bring you a new book that we will be carrying at Integrative Pediatrics. It is titled, “Your Baby, Your Way,” and is written by Jennifer Margulis Ph.D. In Your Baby, Your Way, award-winning journalist Jennifer Margulis explores our current cultural practices during pregnancy, childbirth, and the first year of a baby’s life; challenges advice given to new mothers; and encourages parents to question what they’re told about prenatal and infant care. Margulis explains how financial interests often skew the treatment we give to mothers and infants, investigating topics such as:
- Why cesarean births are increasingly prevalent
- Why more women don’t breastfeed
- How the diaper industry perpetuates delays in potty training
Based on meticulous research and in-depth interviews with doctors, midwives, nurses, health care administrator, and scientists, Margulis’s impassioned and eloquent critique is shocking, groundbreaking, empowering, and revelatory. Your Baby, Your Way inspires parents and arms them with the information they need to make decisions about their own health and the health of their babies.
You can find this great book in our office and on Amazon. We hope you enjoy it!
