The Best Vegan Pregnancy Books For You & Your Baby Bump

by | November 16, 2019

The question of what exactly one should expect when expecting is a common one — and with good reason.

A first (or second or third) pregnancy can be a point of overwhelm under “normal” circumstances, never mind the added pressure of proving to your dismissive in laws that you an your baby can thrive on a plant-based diet.

We’re here to help you put an end to your worries with three not-to-be-missed vegan pregnancy books!

The Kind Mama by Alicia Silverstone

“Prepare your baby house” are the magic — if a bit unexpected — motivational words written by Alicia Silverstone in her holistic guide, The Kind Mama. 

This beautifully photographed book draws on Silverstone’s own experience as an expectant mother, as well as the knowledge and experience of obstetricians, midwives, nutritionists, and holistic health counselors. 

Dive into Silverstone’s world as she explores foods that heal and nourish, ways to improve comfort when pregnant, how to boost energy levels, and how to stay healthy during each trimester.
