Sunshine Coast Chiropractor, Dr. Stacey Rosenberg, has released her first book “Natural Pregnancy, Natural Baby – Natural Remedies for Pregnancy, Birth and Post-Partum Discomforts.”

Dr. Stacey and her staff have been providing chiropractic care in Gibsons, BC since March 2001. While pregnant with her second child in 2006, she expanded her practice into an integrated health clinic called the Gibsons Health and Wellness Centre®. That same year, she also got inspired to write a book on natural pregnancy by the wealth of information provided by the local midwives and Bellies and Babies network as well as additional professional training that Dr. Rosenberg undertook. Many hours of ‘labour’ later, it is finally ready!

“Natural Pregnancy, Natural Baby” is 150+ pages of prevention, tips, techniques, remedies, and resources to help ease the common complaints of pregnancy, birth and the post-partum period. It includes nutrition, pre-natal bonding, comfort measures, herbs, homeopathy, ergonomics, chiropractic, acupressure, yoga, breast-feeding advice, Hypnobirthing® and much more!

REVIEWS:
"Dr Stacey has compiled essential information for a woman ́s safe and effective health needs throughout pregnancy. It is an ideal resource for both practitioners and parents. I love it!" - Jeanne Ohm, DC ICPA Executive Coordinator and family wellness practitioner; Mother of 6

"Natural Pregnancy, Natural Baby" is a well thought out compendium for the expectant mother, put together by an author who has first hand knowledge of the process and can back it up with the right dose of research and scientific background thus allowing the reader to critically sort through the advice and opinions available whether or not they choose a natural pregnancy.
One can read the book from front to cover or simply pluck out the passages or chapters most relevant to ones situation. From getting a recipe using herbs to counter iron deficiency or clarifying the nutritional supplementation guidelines, to describing & illustrating exercises to facilitate the birth process, Dr Rosenberg ́s book shines a light on the myriad of alternatives and empowers the reader to not only enjoy the fruits of ones ‘labour’ but to savor the ride as well.
The pleasant bonus of this book is that its audience, in addition to those involved in welcoming a baby and their caretakers, expands to all individuals who have an interest in preventative and natural care or merely wish to use complementary methods to enhance their own health and wellbeing.
- Ingrid Ferrer, BSc., BSc.(clinical), DC.

About the author (2008)

Meet Dr. Stacey Rosenberg. Chiropractor, wife and mother of 2 busy children. Dr. Stacey can now add author to her many accomplishments as she has completed her first book entitled, Natural Pregnancy, Natural Baby - Natural Remedies for Pregnancy, Birth and Post-Partum Discomforts. Dr. Stacey was pregnant with her second child, and feeling the third trimester nesting urge. This being her second child, she didn't need to shop for baby essentials so she decided to channel the energy into re-organising and re-vamping a few handouts on herbs and homeopathy used in pregnancy and labour that she had received from Bellies and Babies and her midwives. I had a file folder about 3 inches thick full of photocopied sections from pregnancy books and herb books, chiropractic technique and obstetrics textbooks as well as the Hypnobirthingreg; course notes but a lot of it was bits and pieces from here and there and no one source had all the information that I found personally helpful all together in one place, explains Dr. Stacey. So as I finished the re-doing the herbs handout, I decided that it looked more like a chapter than a brochure so I added the homeopathy and chiropractic and from there it just grew and grew... You may be wondering where a busy Mom with a thriving Chiropractic practice finds time to write a book. Dr. Stacey credits her work-a-holic, stick it out until you finish personality and third trimester nesting instinct! And a great family and support network! But balancing a busy life in itself is a full time job. Dr. Rosenberg has some simple strategies for keeping all the balls in the air at once. I try to make sure that work stays at work and I am 'present' at home when I am home. I have a wonderful husband who takes care of the children while I am at work; also, I have been using a coach to help with time management, business planning, reminding me to exercise, relax/meditate and breathe, eat well and take care of myself and my family.
