Midwifery Today, Issue 40, Winter 1996
Good nutrition is the single most important building block for a healthy pregnancy and a strong, healthy baby. Issue 40 interviews Dr. Tom Brewer, whose undying campaign to nourish pregnant women has saved tens of thousands from toxemia. Dr. Michel Odent shares his wisdom on nutrition and health. Eating disorders during pregnancy, vitamin K, ethics, and a triumphant birth story are some of the other highlights of this issue. The International Midwife section gives us the first installment of an extraordinary article on the Inuit written by anthropologist Betty-Anne Daviss.
