Interviewed by Susan Lutz, ATH Editor of Organic Living
Pregnancy can offer challenges on the organic path - from finding time and energy to shop and cook, to managing health and stress and of course, ultimately the birth. Lauren, author of Ginger is the New Pink: My journey towards healing with vegan whole foods, and editor at Crazysexylife.com returns to All Things Healing to share some of her experiences of keeping up with a healthy life for her and her baby on the way...

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Bottle-fed baby kitties are often sole kittens. Thus they don't have much snuggle time with litter mates. Stuffed animals can replace the need to snuggle. This kitty never stops the snuggle-fest.

When pregnant, your new baby should be many things to you, but it shouldn't be a pain in the...pelvis! Outside of having a major trauma, such as a fall or car accident, symphysis pubis dysfunction (SPD), is most commonly associated with being pregnant. Up to a third of pregnant women are affected with this and around one in four women have pain up to four months postpartum, with some even up to twelve months after the birth...
Editor´s Note from Abbey Denaro: As a woman's body changes during pregnancy, pain often accompanies other physical changes. Among them is symphysis pubis dysfunction. Read Dr. Aimee's article to find out if you have this dysfunction and what you can do about it.
Editor's Note from David Arenson: The Baby Spa was invented by Sonia Rochel, a new-born nurse in Paris, as a result of many years of observation and reflection. The video shows for the 1st time some intimate moments of the caring and gentle caressing therapy for babies up to 2 months old. The approach is a learning and inspiration for birthing, and caring for the inner child. What legacy will we leave as a collective? A legacy of living as mature adults who have found a Higher Power, a Power called Self-Love, a Power called God, Freedom, Joy.

Since having a baby, I’m increasingly grateful that my husband and I are so aligned in our values—including how we live, speak, and relate with our daughter. We have both been intuitive since we were 14, and meditating or chanting since our 20’s...
Editor's Note from Lisa Phoenix: This article by Ann O'Brien offers an amazing approach as well as great communication guidelines if you are a new parent or if you are looking to deepen your communication skills on an intuitive level with a child of any age. We need to learn to “listen” to our children but also learn to “trust” what we are intuitively receiving from them as well.

Editor´s Note from Cheryl Murphy: According to Samantha Peris, registered holistic nutritionist and owner of Nu-Roots.com, diet may play a huge role in trying to get pregnant and what better time is there to incorporate, healthy, whole foods into daily living?
