My Top 10 Pregnancy, Post Natal and Female Health Centric Texts


1.  Fat Around the Middle – Marilyn Glenville – easy to read and understand, great for clients who really need to get the message that STRESS is making and keeping them fat!

2.  The Female Body Breakthrough – Rachel Cosgrove – a kick ass text, she tells it how it is and shows you how to get blinding results from pretty easy to do changes in nutrition and beefing up your workouts – a personal favourite.

3.  From Belly Fat to Belly Fat – Dr C W Randolph – great if you have clients who are pre-menopausal or menopausal and just can’t seem to shift the fat.  Some tough love here but I guess the mantra is ‘want something different, got to DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT!  I personally, followed this book to help me with my Oestrogen domininance issues.

4.  Women’s Bodied, Women’s Wisdom – Dr. Christianne Northrup – my bible!  Even Oprah has a copy permanently by here bedside.  If you train women, get this!!!

5.  Pregnancy & Childbirth – A Holistic Approach to Massage and Bodywork – Suzanne Yates – beautiful, sentient – my bodywork bible.

6.  Anatomy and Physiology For Midwives – Coad with Dunstall – one of the major texts on the reading list for student midwives.  Heavy on the science but what did you expect 🙂

7.  Optimum Nutrition Before, During and After Pregnancy – Patrick Holford – Does what it says on the tin from the ever-on-it Mr. Holford.

8.  Fitness for the Pelvic Floor – Beate Carriere – Foundation text for the ‘Movement Based Pelvic Floor Exercise’ crew! 

9.  The Metabolic Effect Diet – Jade & Keoni Teta – BIG BIG science made simple, the Teta brothers rock!  Got stubborn fat all of a sudden?  They’ll help you understand what’s going on and fix up, dramatically!

10.  Balancing Hormones Naturally – Kate Neil & Patrick Holford – Again, does what it says on the tin.  Great advice and tips for regaining endocrine balance. – Passionate About Pregnancy & Post Natal Health & Fitness Education FOREVER!
