3 Things I have learned from Dr Sara Gottfried

Written by: Dianne Edmonds Posted on 03 Sep 2016 0

Four years ago I began to encounter the work of Dr Sara Gottfried as she was working on her first book, The Hormone Cure. Now published and a New York Times best seller, this book began the journey to learning about deeper levels of self care and reinvesting time back into ourselves to balance hormones, particularly important in the life of a mother.

Jennifer Blackford 13/01/2017 5:35:58 PM I love this concept. My motto for this year is, 'Stop, Slow Down and Focus on One Thing'.

Eran Braveman 21/10/2015 9:46:32 PM Great post. A little shorter explanation but it worth reading. You have to provide a little more <a href="http://www.lightingstyle.com.au">lighting</a> on this topic.

Dianne 3/07/2015 2:19:47 PM Thank you Wendy. That is good feedback for us. We are planning to include more on this topic, including aqua, on the pelvic floor and fitness. Appreciate your time to comment.

Wendy Sutton 3/07/2015 10:00:47 AM I am a fitness instructor and Aqua Instructor at Todd Energy Aquatic Centre, New Plymouth, New Zealand. I am always keen to get more information on how I can help pregnant clients in and out of the water. Any new information in regards to pelvic floor exercises is always welcome.

Marianne Ryan 12/06/2015 6:28:14 AM Thank you for such a nice write up about my book Dianne. And an even bigger thank you for all the support you gave me, especially during the "early" stages of writing it. xx

Beth 1/12/2014 12:42:10 PM I purchased this for my daughter when I had a grandchild. My daughter found it very helpful and of course my grandson is just perfect.

Sam 1/12/2014 8:29:15 AM I highly recommend this book. I learnt so much about better caring for my son, we are both so greatful.

Dianne 2/08/2014 9:34:46 PM Thanks very much for your encouraging words about the site and it's valuable use. After taking the advice of Dr Sara Gottfried and "Pressing the Pause button", we will be continuing to work on the site.

Nina Liz 2/08/2014 6:47:45 AM I find the pregnancy centre site a valuable resource. I hope that Dianne will continue to keep the site active and current. The content, layout and accessibility support site use for not only pregnant women, but women throughout the developmental spectrum.
