Instead, I got one chapter after another of needless scaremongering. The pages are filled with preachy ranting about the evils of the livestock farming industry, the companies that make toiletries and cosmetics, the government and so on. Some of the advice verges on dangerous (for example, that you should consult a naturopath or herbalist BEFORE seeing a medical doctor).
This book was a total waste of my money and time. Any vegans looking for advice on how to eat during pregnancy would be best off looking elsewhere. Thanks, Skinny Bitches, for giving us all a bad name.
When It arrived, I had a quick glance through it and decided that I wasn't going to learn very much, because I have already been vegan for 5 years and had one vegan pregnancy and this book goes into great depths explaining why you should go vegan.
Anyway, I decided to read it, and what I found was... that although I had watched earthlings and read about factory farming, this book really, really affected me and made me never want to touch meat or dairy again. I mean, I had no idea how many chemicals, hormones, anti-biotics where given to animals in factory farms, or that such a thing a Johnes (yoneez) disease even existed. (In case you are wondering, it's a disease where the cows have uncontrollable diarrhoea and sometimes the poop goes onto the udders of the cow and into the milk that people are drinking. (I mean gross right!)
Anyway, what I also got from this book, was a confidence in my decision to stay vegan during pregnancy and a knowing that it was the right thing for my baby. They discuss the different scare stories that are on the internet about potential health risks and share their take on it. For example the study that was done in the UK that showed Vegetarian mothers where 5 times more likely to give birth to a baby with Spadias. (I'd never heard of it before either, it's a deformity of the male genitals.) But basically, there have been several other studies done since this one, that have not been able to replicate the findings.Read more ›
