A first-of-its-kind guide to nourishing your pregnancy
with wisdom from Jewish tradition.
B’sha-ah Tovah! You’re pregnant! With all the changes happening to your body right now, it would be easy to focus only on the physical aspects of this life-changing event. But pregnancy is also a spiritually meaningful period in life, a time to reflect and comfort the soul.
The Jewish Pregnancy Book is the first resource to nurture the body, mind and soul of the pregnant woman by combining up-to-date medical information with spiritual nourishment from Jewish tradition.
• For the soul—Ancient and modern prayers and rituals for each stage of pregnancy, as well as traditional Jewish wisdom on pregnancy.
• For the body—Pre-natal Aleph-Bet yoga, a unique blend of yoga and spirituality inspired by the letters of the Hebrew alphabet.
• For the mind—Medical information on topics such as fetal development, pre-natal testing, and potential pregnancy problems, as well as discussions from a contemporary Jewish perspective on ethical issues such as selective reduction and home birth.
In clear, easy-to-follow, accessible language, this groundbreaking handbook guides you through the miraculous and challenging process of creation, engaging your whole being in a uniquely Jewish way.
“A superb contribution to the field of pregnancy, especially geared to the Jewish reader. I recommend it highly for its completeness. The material on pre-natal diagnosis is potentially very important to Ashkenazi Jews. I also recommend this book because of the very well-chosen prayers.”
Dr. Ruth K. Westheimer, author (with Jonathan Marks) of Heavenly Sex: Sex in the Jewish Tradition
“Informed by good science, Jewish insight and the wisdom of the body as expressed through yoga … a rich collection of information, inspiration and support for expectant parents.”
Anita Diamant, author of The New Jewish Baby Book: Names, Ceremonies & Customs—A Guide for Today’s Families and The New Jewish Wedding
Sandy Falk, MD, is a clinical instructor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Harvard Medical School and practices at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.
