Botanical Medicine for Women’s Health
Winner of the 2010 American Botanical Council’s James A. Duke Excellence in Botanical Literature Award!
Botanical Medicine for Women’s Health is an evidence-based book that blends the art and science of women’s health, botanical medicine, and conventional medicine from my perspective as an herbalist-midwife-MD, with contributions from expert colleagues.
Naturally Healthy Babies and Children
Foreword by Dr. William Sears
I wrote this book in the 1980s when I was in my 20′s and my own children were small. Like my midwifery clients, I wanted my children to enjoy excellent health and didn’t want to expose them to unnecessary medical interventions if and when they did get sick.
The Natural Pregnancy Book
Foreword by Ina May Gaskin
As a pregnant momma I had so many questions — how do I eat naturally and meet my baby’s nutritional needs, which herbs and supplements are safe and effective for my nausea, restless legs, and other concerns, how do I prepare for an optimal birthing experience, what about sex during pregnancy….you name it.
Natural Health After Birth
I remember well how lovely — and emotionally tumultuous — those first days, weeks, and months as a new momma can be, whether it’s your first baby or your fourth!
Vaccinations: A Thoughtful Parent’s Guide
Deciding whether or when to vaccinate is one of the most important–and stressful—health-care decisions you have to make. Like many parents you are probably confused and concerned about vaccine safety, whether, when, and how to give vaccines, and don’t know what information to rely on for answers.
I wrote this book with my husband, Tracy Romm EdD, a former high school teacher/principal. We were growing increasingly appalled at the growing numbers of kids who were being diagnosed with ADHD.
