Positive Pregnancy Fitness

Sylvia Klein Olkin, Author Avery Publishing Group $12.95 (0p) ISBN 978-0-89529-373-2
Olkin held her first yoga-oriented Positive Pregnancy Fitness class in 1975, and since then over 10,000 women have benefited from her holistic guidance on prenatal health, birthing and the postnatal period. Although occasionally marred by New Age jargon, this illustrated handbook is full of so much sound physiologically based information that it deserves a wide audience. Throughout the text, she places an emphasis on maintaining a calm, assured mood, and toward that goal, she offers execises for strengthening the body, breathing methods, stress management procedures and nutritional advice that are supplemented by explanations of the birth process and a primer for nursing mothers.
