Francesca Naish and Janette Roberts have helped thousands of couples to have happy, healthy babies with their guides to better conception, better pregnancy and better birth and bonding.

"Following your maternal instinct is important so this book discusses ways to improve that instinctive response. When you follow those instincts, life becomes much easier for the whole family. When you respond instinctively, mothering becomes the simple, natural, joyful, activity it was meant to be and you develop a stronger bond with your baby that translates into a more fulfilling relationship as your baby grows...."

ON THE "NATURAL WAY" SERIES
Conception, pregnancy, birth, bonding and breastfeeding are all natural events, but in today's society these normal aspects of a woman's reproductive life are often considered medical conditions that require intervention, management and treatment.
In response to the growing recognition that a natural approach is a better alternative, Francesca and Janette created the Natural Way series to empower expectant and new mothers with a sense of ownership and knowledge about their body and that of their newborn.
Time and time again, they have proven that when these transformative events unfold in a natural, healthy way, the positive effects for mother and baby resonate for life.
