Pregnancy (The Complete Childbirth Book) - What the Indian Woman Always Wanted to Know But Was Afraid to Ask
Description
Back of the Book

Pregnancy is that wonderful occasion in life, too precious to be disrupted by irrational fears or unnecessary apprehensions caused by the lack of simple, reliable information. This book will tell you all about childbirth, answering questions about weight gain, proper diet, exercises, breathing patterns, positions to adopt during labour, and postnatal care of both yourself and the baby. Scientific and reliable, the book also offers invaluable, time-tested home remedies.

Nutan Pandit is a graduate of sociology from Mumbai University. Thereafter she did a diploma in journalism and has been freelancing for various magazines. She was converted to the faith when breathing practices helped her have easy childbirth. She started taking natural childbirth classes in 1978. She has visited the National Childbirth Trust in London and attended their classes and workshops. She also went to Dr Michel Odent’s unit at Pithivers, France, renowned for various’ unconventional methods of conducting childbirth. Pandit took classes at various nursing homes and Ganga Ram Hospital, New Delhi. She now conducts such classes in New Delhi.

It is very useful for a first pregnancy—gets you mentally prepared for what to expect.

Christine, the Netherlands
Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
Mary, Australia
Love your website and the emails
John, USA
I love antique brass pieces and your site is the best. Not only can I browse through it but can purchase very easily.
Indira, USA
Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt
GABRIEL-FREDERIC Daniel
Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
Prof Madhulika, USA
