Or, puisque de grands changements s'opèrent dans le corps de la femme enceinte, la majorité des principes d'entraînement traditionnels ne s'applique plus à sa situation. C'est pourquoi ce livre propose des exercices respectant spécifiquement les besoins musculaires et articulaires qui évoluent au cours des neuf mois de la grossesse et des six mois suivant la naissance de l'enfant. Cet ouvrage contient également de judicieux conseils et de nombreux programmes pour prévenir et soulager les douleurs associées à la grossesse et à la période postnatale, pour prévenir ou éliminer les inconvénients fréquents, pour corriger les problèmes de posture les plus courants et préparer le corps à l'accouchement afin de faciliter le travail. La nouvelle maman pourra ainsi reprendre le contrôle de son corps après l'accouchement et revenir en toute sécurité à l'entraînement ou au sport.

Abstract
When Meaghan O'Connell got accidentally pregnant in her twenties and decided to keep the baby, she realized that the book she needed -- a brutally honest, agenda-free reckoning with the emotional and existential impact of motherhood -- didn't exist. So she decided to write it herself.
And Now We Have Everything is O'Connell's exploration of the cataclysmic, impossible-to-prepare-for experience of becoming a mother. With her dark humor and hair-trigger B.S. detector, O'Connell addresses the pervasive imposter syndrome that comes with unplanned pregnancy, the fantasies of a "natural" birth experience that erode maternal self-esteem, post-partum body and sex issues, and the fascinating strangeness of stepping into a new, not-yet-comfortable identity.
Channeling fears and anxieties that are still taboo and often unspoken, And Now We Have Everything is an unflinchingly frank, funny, and visceral motherhood story for our times, about having a baby and staying, for better or worse, exactly yourself.

Abstract
Another Twinkle in the Eye is an essential guide for anyone contemplating another pregnancy after perinatal mental illness. The decision to bring a child into the world is rarely one that is taken lightly. When a previous pregnancy and early parenthood has resulted in poor maternal and/or paternal perinatal mental health, making a conscious decision to have another baby can be even more challenging.
This unique book provides facts, resources, and discussion points to support people in making informed and comfortable decisions. It is also an essential resource for health professionals who support or are involved in the decision-making process of couples planning another pregnancy.
The author combines personal experience with real-life stories from other parents. Also included are contributions from healthcare professionals. The book offers comprehensive coverage across five key areas: Reflection on the previous pregnancy, miscarriage or stillbirth, Decisions to be made when considering another pregnancy, Ways to plan for and to have a healthier experience, The role of healthcare professionals and facilities, and Self-help and complementary techniques for good mental health in the perinatal period.

La grossesse est une période de bouleversements qui soulève de nombreuses questions, notamment sur l'alimentation. Est-il vrai qu'on doit « manger pour deux » ? Comment traiter les nausées ? De quelle façon composer des menus simples et variés ? Qu'en est-il de l'acide folique, du fer, des produits naturels ou des suppléments vitaminiques ? Sous les traits d'une journaliste, l'auteur mène ici l'enquête et nous fait partager ses rencontres avec un médecin, une nutritionniste, un chef cuisinier et une sage-femme. A la fois dynamique et très concret, ce guide plein d'astuces allie l'aspect pratique à la rigueur scientifique et fait le point sur les précautions à prendre, les habitudes et les croyances alimentaires concernant la grossesse.

Abstract
Il n'est pas toujours facile de comprendre d'où l'on vient, la grande histoire de la conception et de la naissance. On se pose souvent des questions sur son corps et sur le mystère de son existence. Il faut du temps et beaucoup d'amour pour qu'une graine de vie se forme, se développe jusqu'à devenir un petit bébé. C'est une grande aventure entre un papa, une maman... et Dieu aussi.
