From the Inside Flap
A much-needed antidote to our modern, assembly-line approach to childbirth, this new book is designed as a guide for all who wish to participate in the wondrous process of bringing new life into the world. Its ideas derive from two sources: the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda, with its emphasis on body, mind, and spirit, and the latest Western scientific prenatal research. By integrating the best information from these two very different perspectives, this remarkable book gives readers the tools to ensure that our children are nourished by thoughts, words, and actions from the very moment of conception.
"Magical Beginnings, Enchanted Lives is rich in practical information, including strategies to help enliven the body intelligence of unborn babies by nourishing each of their five senses, as well as through Ayurvedically balanced nutrition and eating with awareness. Specific yoga poses and meditation techniques reduce the mother's stress and improve the infant's emotional environment, as do tips for conscious communication with a partner. Exercises prepare parents for the experience of childbirth itself, followed by natural approaches to dealing with the first weeks of parenting, from healing herbs to enhancing your milk supply to coping with postpartum depression.
Inspiring, expansive, and remarkably informative, this unique book from acclaimed experts in mind-body medicine will profoundly enhance the experience of pregnancy and birth for both parents and baby.

I thought that the book would have a holistic and ayurvedic approach as described, (as in India pregnant women follow many holistic practises which ease labour and support the baby's healthy development)but hardly found any useful or new information.
To me it seemed that the author, Deepak Chopra, who I personally met, simply wanted to make money with this book.
As I mentioned before, the information you can read, is based on western allopatic knowledge and the rest, (10%) is about dealing with the mind and emotions..so, I would not recommend this book.
If you're looking for a book to understand something other than the biological changes taking place during pregnancy, then this is the one to read.
