Before she was a beloved pregnancy blogger, certified birthing doula, and childbirth preparation educator, author Bailey Gaddis met her own pregnancy by buying a bunch of books — which, for the most part, made her even more confused, insecure, and scared.

Adopting the principles and philosophy of feng shui, the Chinese system of cultivating inner and outer harmony, this book guides women to their balanced center and supports them in tapping into the primal energies brought forth in the birthing experience.

JERRY LYNCH, author of LET THEM PLAY, on how mindfulness can help parents & coaches better support their kids, who just want to play
By Publicity Admin
Kids play sports because they love playing and having fun with their friends, but it can be very stressful for parents, who often sacrifice their weekends and thousands of dollars for camps, traveling to away games, and employing special coaches.

But when we can just let our kids play and have fun, they get exactly what they need, which is the best kind of success. Jerry Lynch, author of Let Them Play: The Power & Joy of Mindful Sports Parenting, shares some tips on how mindfulness can help parents and coaches better support their kids.

By Samy AbulEla
Increasing numbers of parents grapple with children who are acting out without obvious reason. Revved up and irritable, many of these children are diagnosed with ADHD, bipolar illness, autism, or other disorders but don't respond well to treatment.

Her new book Reset Your Child’s Brain explores a four-week program she had pioneered to treat what she calls Electronic Screen Syndrome, and produce a life-changing shift in brain function that help get children back on track, all without cost or medication.
