I had the opportunity to review the Making Babies DVD series, and the Making Babies Book as well. In the Making Babies DVD series you will be purchasing 3 DVDs for $75.00. Shoshanna Easling presents her information in a very energetic and informative manner. I was impressed with the wide range of information shared in the course of 7 hours of instructive pregnancy and postpartum help.
In Making Babies DVD Volume 1 you will find recipes, remedies, herbal concoctions, and information about pregnancy in the first trimester such as dealing with morning sickness. There is some brief information about fertility and conception. This DVD is 2 hours 30 minutes long.
In Making Babies Volume 2 you will learn how to make healthy recipes, remedies, herb concoctions, and information about the second and third trimesters, exercise, birth preparations, and more. This DVD is 2 hours 15 minutes.
Making Babies Volume 3 is full of more healthy recipes, remedies, herbal concoctions, and information about birth, postpartum, loosing weight, getting into shape, and more. It is 2 hours 20 minutes long.
I found each DVD follows the general format of a lovely outdoor location where Shoshanna shows you how to make a herbal concoction or remedy. Following this is a pregnancy tip, followed by a recipe she shows you how to make in a beautiful indoor kitchen, and some more helpful tips. You are following along with Shoshanna during her pregnancy, birth, and postpartum time. I learned a great deal of herbal information I was not aware of shared in the DVD’s. Some of the tinctures and herbal recipes shared would be worth the purchase of the DVD’s on the merit of that information alone. I was impressed with the quality of the filming for these DVD’s. It made watching these very pleasant, along with Shoshanna’s cheerful sharing of information.
I enjoyed watching Shoshanna in the kitchen as she shares many healthy recipes in the DVD’s. A huge part of a healthy pregnancy and baby can be on the way you eat. I thought she shared some delicious looking recipes. At the end I was so inspired by her recipes that I want to try and use them solely for next month's menu plan. She uses lots of vegetables and good proteins without tons of exotic items that would cost you a fortune when grocery shopping. She does feel it is best to go gluten free during portions of your pregnancy and after baby's birth so there are gluten free recipes shared as well.
Following the Making Babies DVD series is the awesome Making Babies Book available for $35. Talk about being impressed! I was blown away by this 480 page book. The minute you open the book the first thing that jumps out at you is how beautiful it is. That may sound funny, but the photography is so gorgeous throughout the book. With bright lovely photos, Shoshanna’s signature energetic style jumps out at you through the pages.
Beyond that, the book begins following the Making Babies DVD’s. You will find the recipes and herbal remedy recipes from Making Babies DVD Volume 1, followed by the recipes for Volume 3 and 4. Moving on from there is a large section titled My Pregnancy Cookbook. There are over 100 recipes shared running from Beverages to Breads, Desserts, Breakfast, Main Course Salads, Sauces and Condiments, Vegetables and Side Dishes. Following this is a “Did You Know” section with basic tips and suggestions shared for a healthy pregnancy. Grandma’s Remedies section covers practical recipes for pregnancy, nursing, and beyond. A Baby Diary is included with approximately 50 pages to fill in for the 1st month of pregnancy to the birth of your child. Despite the Making Babies title I would recommend this book to any woman on the basis of healthy recipes and herbal remedies alone. I know I will be using it for next month’s menu plan!
