Product Details


“Essential reading for all pregnant women who are anxious about labor and birth. And that’s the vast majority in today’s fear-based medical environment.”
—Dr. Christiane Northrup, New York Times bestselling author of Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom

“An essential book for all pregnant women. Finding Calm for the Expectant Mom provides indispensable tools that women can use to find balance and joy throughout their pregnancy, rather than the often unexpected reality of anxiety, fatigue, and lethargy.”
—Jodi A. Mindell, Ph.D., author of Sleeping Through the Night: How Infants, Toddlers, and Their Parents Can Get a Good Night’s Sleep and associate director of the Sleep Center at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia

“Every expectant mother wonders what is normal, what to do with the mood swings and the never ending things to watch out for. In short order what should be one of the great experiences in life can be filled with stress. But there is no reason to worry because Dr. Domar is with you every step of the way. Just hearing her say, ‘stop, breathe, reflect, and choose’ lets you know that Finding Calm for the Expectant Mom is going to be a great companion.”
—Nancy L Snyderman, MD, FACS, consulting professor of global health at Stanford University

“While there is a lot of information out there on how expectant moms can stay physically healthy, this invaluable book helps women navigate the many emotional stresses of pregnancy. Dr. Domar has an innovative approach; she reassures, normalizes, and comforts with compassion and plenty of practical, research-based remedies for dealing with pregnancy-related anxiety. I just wish this book had been written when I was having my babies!! This is a must-read for every expectant mom!”
—Miriam E. Nelson, Ph.D., author of Strong Women Stay Young and director of the Sustainability Institute at the University of New Hampshire
