Description

Zita West, midwife to Cate Blanchett, Stella McCartney and Kate Winslet, shares her expertise in nutrition to help you and your baby stay healthy naturally throughout your pregnancy. It is crucial to eat an optimum diet during pregnancy. Your levels of nutrients need to be high in order to support you through the process of pregnancy, and the baby that you’re carrying inside of you needs the full range of nutrients to be as healthy as possible. It can be difficult and tiring to make nutrient-filled meals, but Zita gives you clear information and simple, easy-to-make recipes. The first section of the book covers details such as what nutrients are important and what they do for you and your baby, and foods that are unhealthy to consume during pregnancy. The second section uses the vitamins and nutrients explained in the first section in 80 delicious recipes.

Zita West:
Zita West, the UK's trusted expert on fertility, pregnancy and birth and a pioneer in the field of fertility, has been involved in fertility and pregnancy for over 25 years, as a midwife, a nutritional advisor, an acupuncturist and as an author and consultant. Over that time thousands of couples have come to her for advice on how to get into optimum shape for all the vital stages of childbirth. Zita is acknowledged as one of Europe's leading experts on how each of us can improve our prospects at each key stage of the reproductive process through natural means or, if necessary, through medical intervention.

Zita was one of the first to offer acupuncture to pregnant women (back in the late Eighties) for symptoms such as morning sickness. She set up an NHS/alternative therapy clinic for pregnant women, in Warwick. But the "bureaucracy" of the NHS drove her away and eventually she set up her own, private fertility and pregnancy clinic. Twenty years on she employs 25 staff, including medical specialists, out of offices near Harley Street. She is the mother of two children.www.zitawest.com The author lives in UK.
