Your Brain on Porn

94 ratings

Summary

Revised and updated in December 2017. When high speed Internet became widely available a few years ago, growing numbers of people began to worry that their porn use was running out of control. Far from preparing them for fulfilling relationships, viewing an endless stream of porn videos led to unexpected symptoms. Perhaps most surprisingly, for the first time in history erectile dysfunction was becoming a significant problem for young men. This led to one of the largest informal experiments in the history of science. Tens of thousands of people have tried abstaining from sexually stimulating material in a process they call "rebooting." Many of them reported startling changes, from improved concentration and elevated mood to a greater capacity for real-life intimacy. Gary Wilson has listened to the stories of those who have tried giving up Internet porn and related them to an account of how the reward system of the brain interacts with its environment. And now a growing body of research in neuroscience is confirming what these pioneers have discovered for themselves - Internet pornography can be seriously addictive and damaging. In Your Brain on Porn Wilson provides a concise introduction to the phenomenon of Internet porn addiction that draws on both first-person accounts and the findings of cognitive neuroscience. In a voice that is generous and humane, he also offers advice for those who want to stop using Internet pornography. The publication of Your Brain on Porn is a landmark in our attempts to understand, and remain balanced in, a world where addiction is big business.

Summary

Based on the hit documentary that inspired a vibrant online community, this innovative approach to birthing shows women how to maximize childbirth's emotional and physical rewards. With more than 4 million babies born in the United States each year, too many women experience birth as nothing more than a routine or painful event. In her much-praised film Orgasmic Birth, acclaimed filmmaker Debra Pascali-Bonaro showed that in fact childbirth is a natural process to be enjoyed and cherished. Now she joins forces with renowned author and activist Elizabeth Davis to offer an enlightening program to help women attain the most empowering and satisfying birth experience possible. While an orgasmic birth can, for some, induce feelings of intense, ecstatic pleasure, it is ultimately about taking control of one's own body and making the most informed decisions to have a safe, memorable, and joyful birth day. Whether women choose to give birth at home, in a hospital, or in a birthing center, Orgasmic Birth provides all the necessary tools and guidance to design the birth plan that's best for them. Featuring inspiring stories from mothers and their partners and filled with practical advice and solutions, this one-of-a-kind resource is the next frontier of natural, intimate childbirth.

Summary

The first 40 days after the birth of a child offer an essential and fleeting period of rest and recovery for the new mother. Based on author Heng Ou's own postpartum experience with zuo yuezi, a set period of “confinement”, in which a woman remains at home focusing on healing and bonding with her baby, The First Forty Days revives the lost art of caring for the mother after birth.  As modern mothers are pushed to prematurely “bounce back” after deliver­ing their babies, and are often left alone to face the physical and emotional challenges of this new stage of their lives, the first 40 days provide a lifeline - a source of connection, nourishment, and guidance.  The book includes 60 simple recipes for healing soups; replenishing meals and snacks; and calming and lactation-boosting teas, all formulated to support the unique needs of the new mother. In addition to the recipes, this warm and encouraging guide offers advice on arranging a system of help during the post­partum period, navigating relationship challenges, and honoring the significance of pregnancy and birth.  PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

The Postnatal Depletion Cure

6 ratings

Summary

While postpartum depression has become a recognizable condition, The Postnatal Depletion Cure is the first book to treat the nutrient depletion, sleep loss, and emotional shifts that afflict women up to a decade after giving birth. Most mothers have experienced exhaustion, pain, forgetfulness, indecision, low energy levels, moodiness, or some form of baby brain. And it's no wonder: The process of growing a baby depletes a mother's body in substantial ways - on average, a mother's brain shrinks 5 percent during pregnancy, and the placenta saps her of essential nutrients that she needs to be healthy and contented. But with postnatal care ending after six weeks, most women never learn how to rebuild their strength and care for their bodies after childbirth. As a result, they can suffer from the effects of depletion for many years, without knowing what's wrong as well as getting the support and treatments that they need. Any woman who has heard What to Expect When You're Expecting needs a copy of The Postnatal Depletion Cure. Filled with trustworthy advice and protocols for successful recovery from a compassionate expert in women's health, The Postnatal Depletion Cure will help every mother restore her energy, replenish her body, and reclaim her sense of self.

Summary

In Sex Outside the Lines, Dr. Chris Donaghue describes the holes in society's definition of "normal", taking a sharp eye to institutions such as marriage, cheating, virginity, identity, and sexual orientation. He also examines all the ways that accepting society's "truths" have led to the demise of long-term relationships and sexual pleasure. All of this misinformation is showing up in your bedroom and preventing you from having the sex life you're entitled to. In Donaghue's years of training in sex and couples therapy, he has developed highly successful methods for freeing clients from sexual hang-ups, enabling them to let go of shame and embarrassment. Donaghue pulls apart cultural phobias with a "sex positive" therapy practice, a kind of sexual deprograming that helps people see and accept the desires they have - even if they don't align with societal expectations - are really natural, healthy, and part of having a great sex life.

Summary

There are approximately 3,712 ways for a guy to look stupid during pregnancy - this book's here to help you avoid all (most) of them. And here's your first hint: Focus on what you can be doing for her rather than what's happening to her. She's pregnant. She knows that. You know that. And her one 152 baby books tell her exactly what she can expect. Your job is to learn what you can do between the stick turning blue and the drive to the delivery room to make the next nine months go as smoothly as possible. That's where John Pfeiffer steps in. Like any good coach, he's been through it. He's dealt with the morning sickness and doctor visits, painting the baby's nursery and packing the overnight bag, choosing a name, hospital, and the color of the car-seat cover. All the while he remained positive and responsive - there with a "You're beautiful" when necessary - but assertive during the decision-making process. (He didn't want to wind up with a kid named Percy.) And now it's your turn. She might be having the baby, but you have plenty of responsibilities.

Summary

What to listen to after What to Expect....  A badass, feminist, and personal deep-dive into the science and culture of pregnancy and early motherhood that debunks myths and dated assumptions, offering guidance and camaraderie to women navigating one of the biggest and most profound changes in their lives. Like most first-time mothers, Angela Garbes was filled with questions when she became pregnant. What exactly is a placenta? How does a body go into labor? Why is breast best? What are the signs and effects of postpartum depression? But as she discovered, it’s not easy to find satisfying answers. Your OB will cautiously quote statistics; online sources will scare you with conflicting and often inaccurate information; and even the most trusted books will offer information with a heavy dose of judgment. To educate herself, the food and culture writer embarked on an intensive journey of exploration, diving into the scientific mysteries and cultural myths that surround motherhood to find answers to her questions that had only previously been given through a lens of what women ought to do - instead of allowing them the freedom to choose the right path themselves. In Like a Mother, Angela offers a rigorously researched and compelling look at the physiology, biology, chemistry, and psychology of pregnancy and motherhood, informed by research, reportage, and her own experience. With a journalist’s curiosity and discipline, a mother’s urgency, and a food writer’s insatiability, she explores the science behind the pressing questions women have about a number of subjects, including postpartum hormones, breast milk, and miscarriage. Infused with candor and humor, born out of awe, appreciation, and understanding of the human body and its workings, Like a Mother is a full-frontal look at what’s really happening underneath your skin (and to it) and why women need to know.

Summary

The hidden intelligence of hormones and their role in empowering women to succeed sexually, reproductively, and socially. Did you know women walk more, eat less, socialize more, meet more men, dance more, and flirt more when they're ovulating? Or that PMS may have evolved to get rid of boyfriends with unfit sperm? Behind the "fickle" differences in what women find sexy about men, or what they like to wear, there's a hidden adaptive intelligence that has been shaped over eons. Rather than making women irrational - as the conventional and irredeemably sexist wisdom goes - the female hormonal cycle has been exquisitely fine-tuned to give women the advantages they needed to succeed in our ancestral environments, and perhaps also today. In this provocative and paradigm-shattering book, Martie Haselton, the world's leading researcher on sexuality and the ovulation cycle, takes a deep, revealing look at the biological processes that so profoundly influence our behavior, and sets forth a radical new understanding of women's bodies, minds, and sexual relationships, one that embraces hormonal cycles as adaptive solutions to genuine biological challenges. At the core of Hasleton's new Darwinian feminism is her remarkable discovery that humans, like our animal cousins, possess a special phase of sexuality, called estrus, which comes with a host of physiological and behavioral changes. Combining the scientific rigor of a leading researcher with the wit and candor of a best friend, Haselton explains how hormonal intelligence works - both its strengths and its weaknesses - and how women can track and understand their desires, fears, perceptions, and fantasies across the twenty-eight-day cycle and over the course of their lives. Rigorously researched, entertaining, and empowering, Hormonal offers women deep new insights into their bodies, brains, relationships, and affairs, allowing them to make better-informed choices about sex, marriage, friendship, contraception, and more. Above all, Hormonal is a clarion call to appreciate and embrace the genius of female biology.

Summary

With more than 1.3 million video views each month and over 52 million total views on her YouTube channel, Howland's (aka Mama Natural) funny but informational videos have empowered millions of women to embrace natural pregnancy and parenting. Now Howland is turning to books, offering up the first week-by-week natural pregnancy book for soon-to-be moms. For the last half century, control over childbirth has been in favor of doctors. Many pregnancy guidebooks are conventional, fear based, and written by male physicians deeply entrenched in the old-school medical model of birth. But change is underway. A groundswell of women are taking back their pregnancies and childbirth and embracing a natural way. Genevieve Howland, the woman behind the enormously popular Mama Natural blog and YouTube channel, has created an inspiring, fun, and informative guide that demystifies natural pregnancy and walks Mom through the process one week at a time. The Mama Natural's Week-by-Week Guide to Pregnancy and Childbirth is the modern (and yet ancient) approach to pregnancy and childbirth. "Natural" recognizes that pregnancy and birth are normal and that having a baby is a wondrous biological process and rite of passage - not a medical condition. This book draws upon the latest research showing how beneficial and life changing natural birth is for both babies and moms. Full of weekly advice and tips for a healthy pregnancy, Howland details vital nutrition to take, natural remedies for common and troublesome symptoms, and the appropriate (and inappropriate) use of interventions. Peppered throughout are positive birth and pregnancy stories from women of all backgrounds (and all stages of their natural journeys) along with advice and insights from a certified nurse midwife (CNM) plus a registered nurse (RN), a doula, and a lactation consultant. Encouraging, well researched, and fun, The Mama Natural's Week-by-Week Guide to Pregnancy and Childbirth will be an essential companion for women everywhere to embrace natural pregnancy and reap all the benefits for both baby and mama.

In Birth Without Fear, January Harshe - founder of the global online community Birth Without Fear - delivers an honest, positive, and passionate message of empowerment surrounding everything that involves having a baby. It's a guide that fills in the considerable cracks in the information available to women and families when they're preparing to welcome a child - covering care provider choices, medical freedom, birth options, breastfeeding, intimacy, postpartum depression, and much more.  Birth Without Fear shows moms, dads, partners, and families how to choose the best provider for them, how to trust in themselves and the birth process, and how to seek the necessary help after the baby has arrived. In addition, it will educate them about their rights - and how to use their voice to exercise them - as well as how to cope with the messy postpartum feelings many people aren't willing to talk about. Unlike other pregnancy books, Birth Without Fear will also help partners understand what mothers are going through, as well as discuss the challenges that they, too, will face - and how they can navigate them.

Summary

Are you a woman between 35 and 50 experiencing PMS, migraine headaches, sudden weight gain, fatigue, irritability, tender or lumpy breasts, memory loss, fibroids, or cold hands and feet? If so, you may be experiencing symptoms of premenopause. Even if you're a decade or more away from menopause, your hormones may already be out of balance, usually caused by an excess of estrogen and a deficiency of progesterone, say the authors of What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Pre-Menopause. John Lee, MD, is a well-known advocate of the benefits of natural progesterone and the author of What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Menopause. Jesse Hanley, MD, adds sensitivity to the emotional and spiritual aspects of premenopause. The authors recommend natural progesterone cream to balance your hormones, eliminate premenopausal symptoms, and make you feel better. They also discuss the dangers of xenohormones - substances not found in nature that have hormonal effects, frequently found in pesticides, solvents, plastics, and hormone-treated meat. The book presents common symptoms of premenopause with suggested natural treatments (progesterone cream, diet, vitamins, and herbs) and substances to avoid, plus additional chapters on diet and exercise. Many case studies help to bring the information into perspective. If you are premenopausal (or close to someone who is), this is a valuable resource.

The fourth book in Dawn Dais's popular Sh!t No One Tells You series offers "been there, freaked out about that" advice for expectant parents The fourth title in Dawn Dais's popular parenting series, The Sh!t No One Tells You About Pregnancy is quite possibly the funniest, and most heartfelt, yet. After all, pregnancy is not all about scanning Pinterest for baby shower themes and registering for ironic onesies, and sometimes the less flattering aspects of gestation have a way of dimming a bit of that so-called pregnancy glow. Not to worry! Dawn is here, ready to shepherd you through the experience of one human body taking on the task of growing another human body. (Spoiler alert: It ain't always pretty.)  Dawn covers it all, sharing expert lists, tips, warnings, and even a series of Parent-Training Workouts designed to increase readers' tolerance to the various indignities of parenthood, like peeing with an audience and surviving an afternoon in Chuck E. Cheese. The Sh!t No One Tells You About Pregnancy is a must-have guide for expectant moms (and their partners!) who are looking for some counsel, comedy, and camaraderie during their ultimate countdown to parenthood.

Why you won’t harm your baby, even if you had a glass of wine before you knew you were pregnant... You can't describe the happiness you felt the moment you got the positive results of your pregnancy test.

Expecting Better

Summary

What to Expect When You're Expecting meets Freakonomics: an award-winning economist disproves standard recommendations about pregnancy to empower women while they're expecting. From the author of Cribsheet, a data-driven decision making guide to the early years of parenting Pregnancy - unquestionably one of the most pro­found, meaningful experiences of adulthood - can reduce otherwise intelligent women to, well, babies. Pregnant women are told to avoid cold cuts, sushi, alcohol, and coffee without ever being told why these are forbidden. Rules for prenatal testing are similarly unexplained. Moms-to-be desperately want a resource that empowers them to make their own right choices. When award-winning economist Emily Oster was a mom-to-be herself, she evaluated the data behind the accepted rules of pregnancy, and discovered that most are often misguided and some are just flat-out wrong. Debunking myths and explaining everything from the real effects of caffeine to the surprising dangers of gardening, Expecting Better is the book for every pregnant woman who wants to enjoy a healthy and relaxed pregnancy - and the occasional glass of wine. * This audiobook includes a downloadable PDf of charts, graphs and an Appendix from the book.

HypnoBirthing: The Mongan Method, 4th Edition

34 ratings

Summary

HypnoBirthing has gained momentum around the globe as a positive and empowering method of childbirth. Here's why: HypnoBirthing helps women to become empowered by developing an awareness of the instinctive birthing capability of their bodies. It greatly reduces the pain of labor and childbirth; frequently eliminates the need for drugs; reduces the need for caesarian surgery or other doctor-controlled birth interventions; and it also shortens birthing and recovery time, allowing for better and earlier bonding with the baby, which has been proven to be vital to the mother-child bond. What's more, parents report their infants sleep better and feed more easily when they haven't experienced birth trauma.     HypnoBirthing founder Marie Mongan knows from her own four births that it is not necessary for childbirth to be a terribly painful experience. In this audiobook, she shows women how the Mongan Method works and how parents can take control of the greatest and most important event of their lives.    So, why is birth such a traumatic event for so many women? And why do more than 40 percent of births now end in caesarian section, the highest percentage in history? The answer is simple: because our culture teaches women to fear birth as a painful and unsettling experience. Fear causes three physical reactions in the body - tightening of the muscles, reduced blood flow to the birthing muscles, and the release of certain hormones - which increase the pain and discomfort of childbirth. This is not hocus-pocus - this is science.   PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Smooth Transition to Parenthood for First Time Mothers and Fathers

Summary

Why trusting your natural parenting instinct could harm your baby. From the beginning of human existence and hundreds of years forward, people have been able to successfully care for their babies without the help of countless parenting books or quick searches on Google. What has changed since then that has made us chronic worriers, unable to trust our innate abilities? Society. We feel the pressure of our fast-paced world closing in on us, wanting to deliver the high expectations we set for ourselves as a result. This causes us stress, fear, and worry, so much to the point where it clouds our own judgment. Although there’s nothing that can be done about how quickly modern life evolves, you can ease your troubles and worries by doing what’s best for you in times of expecting a little one. Fill your head with the essential knowledge to simplify the process and take the guesswork out of parenthood. In Smooth Transition to Parenthood for First-Time Mothers and Fathers, you will discover: The changes you can expect both mentally and physically before and after the baby is born, yet how you can adjust to them accordingly without compromising your relationship  The key aspect to keep in mind before returning to work, especially if time management is a major concern of yours  Steps to utilize the best postnatal exercises to keep your body fit, in shape, and back to how it used to be before pregnancy  The number one mistake mothers make when it comes to nutrition that only ends up delaying the recovery process and what you should be focusing on, instead Ways to lose the baby weight naturally yet effectively and make sure it stays off in the long run  The top factors to consider before deciding whether or not (or when) to have a second child, allowing you to avoid running into hardships further down the line  Steps to rebuild intimacy with your partner once the baby is born and see past any barriers that may be causing tension in the relationship And much more... You’re not alone. Nearly all first-time parents have endless worries and questions before, during, and after birth. The difference, however, between stressful parenthood and one where you can actually take a moment to recollect your thoughts, is the quality of information and advice you receive. Although you may feel overwhelmed or as if you won’t be a good parent, it’s important to relax and view everything as a learning process. Parenting isn’t about being perfect, but rather it’s about exploring a new world and getting comfortable with the incredible changes that coincide with it, both inside and out. Nothing compares to the feeling you get when you hold your son or daughter for the first time and look into their eyes. In that moment, all you want to do is give them the world. Stop wasting your energy on worries and start fueling your baby with the love and nurturing they need to grow into happy, healthy, confident children.

Summary

Celebrity trainer and goop expert Lauren Roxburgh's program that uses pelvic floor strength to release stress, strengthen the body, and treat the physical and mental origins of tension. Located at our root, all energy and strength flow up from the pelvic floor. Our pelvic floor determines how strong our core is, how we handle stress, and how much energy reaches the rest of our body. In other words, without addressing the health of our pelvic floor, we are all missing out on a powerful key component of our overall physical, emotional, and spiritual health. The Power Source will give readers a deep understanding of how to cultivate this strength in their bodies and in their lives by following a holistic, multi-sensory program that works from the pelvic floor up. The Power Source shows how and why our pelvic floor is so important from a variety of different perspectives, ranging from purely physical body mechanics to how it impacts our nervous system to how it is the seat of all life force energy. Roxburgh demonstrates how it relates to the other areas of our body (or, as she calls them, "containers"), both physically and energetically. And, most importantly, she shares a program for how readers can align their bodies and their lives by adopting an entirely new and more powerful definition of "strength".

Porn Addiction : Comprehensive Beginner's Guide to Eliminate Porn Addiction

Summary

For most people, if they hear the word addiction, they would automatically think about drugs like heroin or meth. The truth is though, there are many more addictions out there that are just as dangerous, and porn is one of them. Porn addiction can cause the same problems with drug addiction, and it can be difficult to give up. Being addicted to porn is a behavioral addiction and is characterized by a growing compulsion to view pornographic material or content. People who suffer from a porn addiction used to have to satisfy their cravings by storing and viewing pornographic photos, magazines, and videos. They now have tools readily available to feed their addiction - thanks to the Internet. This allows them to have unlimited access to porn at any level of explicitness. An even bigger problem is that people do not view porn on the same level as drugs. They think it’s just a nasty habit that cannot cause any real problems. It can and does. This audiobook will help you with: Identifying a problem Choosing treatment The process of recovery How to deal with relapse And much more Nobody should suffer from the negative side effects of any addiction. Get help today by listening to this audiobook. This audiobook is also helpful if you want to help somebody else. The important thing is to make sure that they want help because if they do not, they will not be open to your help.

Summary

Tech investor and new mom Leslie Schrock offers a thoroughly modern guide to pregnancy - from the preparations of “trimester zero” to the challenges of the newborn months. In the last 30 years, the process of starting a family has drastically changed. Not only are there many more options for getting pregnant, but there are a dizzying array of variables from start to finish. Genetic test or no genetic test? Midwife or OB-GYN? Stroller or Baby Bjorn?  Yet all this choice can also create anxiety, especially around the most difficult realities. Miscarriages and fertility issues are common, yet often concealed. One in nine mothers report dealing with postpartum depression, but it is rarely acknowledged and even more rarely treated. Celebrities post “snap-back” photos of their slim post-baby bodies, creating unrealistic expectations for women everywhere. We have more information than ever, yet nearly every aspect of motherhood is still shrouded in judgment and mystery.  Enter Leslie Schrock, first-time mother whose own struggles opened her eyes to this widespread problem. With the frank, funny warmth of a trusted friend, she delves into everything from in vitro fertilization and prenatal testing to lactation consultants and postpartum birth control. She debunks the most pervasive pregnancy myths, explores the complementary practices, and cites the latest science (with a dash of been-there-done-that experience) to help you make the best decisions every step of the way - for both you and your baby.  So tune out all of the noise you don’t need, and take control of your pregnancy - present or future.

The Art of Roughhousing

Summary

Everywhere you look, physical play - what some might call "roughhousing" - is being marginalized. Gym classes are getting shorter. Recess periods are being eliminated. Some new schools don't even have playgrounds. Is it any wonder children retreat to "virtual horseplay" via video games? But Drs. Anthony T. DeBenedet and Lawrence J. Cohen are here to shake things up - literally! With The Art of Roughhousing, they show how rough-and-tumble play can nurture close connections, solve behavior problems, boost confidence, and more. Drawing inspiration from gymnastics, martial arts, ballet, traditional sports, and even animal behavior, the authors present dozens of activities for children and parents to enjoy together - everything from the "Sumo Dead Lift" to the "Rogue Dumbo." These delightful games are fun, free, and contain many surprising health benefits for parents. So put down those electronic games and get ready to rumble! PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Summary

Published to widespread acclaim, Tina Cassidy's smart, engaging book is the first world history of childbirth in 50 years. From evolution to the epidural and beyond, Tina Cassidy presents an intelligent, enlightening, and impeccably researched cultural history of how and why we're born the way we are. Women have been giving birth for millennia, but that's about the only constant in the final stage of the great process that is human reproduction. Why is it that every culture and generation seems to have its own ideas about the best way to give birth? Cassidy explores the physical, anthropological, political, and religious factors that have and will continue to influence how women bring new life into the world.

The Sweetness of Venus

1 rating

Summary

For millennia, scientists thought women were inside-out versions of men, and male anxiety about female sexuality generated ludicrous ideas and perpetuated inaccurate information. The Sweetness of Venus is a provocative, straight-talking history that exposes the denial, misunderstanding, brutality, and lies endured by this taboo part of human anatomy.  Much of the story of the clitoris has been defined by those who discovered and mapped her. However, even after the true anatomy of the clitoris was finally fully mapped with 3D imaging in 2005, it still hardly gets a mention in America's best-selling teen sex-education book for girls, and no mention at all in the parallel book for boys. Equality when it comes to sex has not been achieved. This book challenges Western culture's definition of female sexuality and will have you laughing out loud, shouting "clitoris!" with abandon, and championing sex equality and pleasure for all.

Summary

Alba Padró, desde su experiencia como madre y consultora de lactancia, te ofrece en Somos la leche las claves para conseguir que la lactancia sea un acto placentero para ti y tu bebé. La maternidad es una etapa desconocida, llena de mitos y miedos, si eres madre primeriza. Y si quieres amamantar a tu bebé, debes saber que se puede aprender a dar el pecho, que no es un acto instintivo. Disponer de información y apoyo es vital para poder decidir sobre cada aspecto de la lactancia. Somos la leche responde a las preguntas más frecuentes que se puede hacer una madre primeriza: ¿Cómo me preparo para la lactancia? ¿Qué pasa si mi bebé no se agarra bien o no gana peso? ¿Hasta cuándo debo dar el pecho y cuándo se recomienda el destete? ¿Cómo compatibilizo la lactancia materna con la vuelta al trabajo? ¿Qué cacharros necesito realmente para dar de mamar? Este libro también da respuesta a otras muchas cuestiones no tan comunes, como son las complicaciones que pueden surgir durante la lactancia, las distintas fases por las que pasa el bebé desde su nacimiento hasta el destete, la donación de leche materna y los grupos de apoyo, cómo inmunizarse ante las críticas del entorno o cómo superar el duelo y la culpabilidad que se siente con el destete o cuando no se puede amamantar con leche materna. Alba Padró es clara en este punto: lo más importante es que la mamá y el bebé se sientan bien. Please note: This audiobook is in Spanish.

Pre- and Postnatal Care for Both Baby and Mom

Summary

Stop doubting and start knowing. Motherhood isn’t as scary as you may think... Are you an expectant mother who gets anxious every time you imagine life once the baby arrives, doubting if you’ll live up to the standards to keep another human being alive? Is this your first, second, or even fifth pregnancy, yet you feel as if you need a thorough refresher once more, before going into the process? Do you constantly worry that you won’t be prepared for when the baby enters the world, feeling as if you’re bound to make a mistake? One that may even harm the baby? It’s completely natural for first-time mothers to feel overwhelmed and scared when expecting. Although the majority of women experience the beauties of pregnancy and childbirth, it doesn’t mean it gets any less daunting when the next one arrives. The main reason why women stress so much about their pregnancies though, is because of their lack of knowledge concerning the baby itself. It’s one thing to understand the changes your body goes through throughout the process, but once the baby is born, there’s a whole other focus. For that reason, it can only work in your favor to delve into the topics covering what you should know before, during, and after giving birth to your little bundle of joy. In Pre- and Postnatal Care for Both Baby and Mom, you will discover: How to come to a decision on any tough choices you may have to make leading up to childbirth and be satisfied with them, leaving you with no second-guessing  The key to adjusting to your new role as a mother and handling common baby stress factors, without losing yourself in the process  Step-by-step guidance on your baby’s first days, taking away any doubt or questions you may have and replacing them with confidence and assurance Common challenges mothers face with breastfeeding and how you can overcome these road bumps to ensure your baby gets all the nutrition it needs for healthy growth and development  Things you can expect at medical check-ups, both during and after the pregnancy, allowing you to remain at ease knowing that both you and your baby are doing well in the process  The often overlooked factors to consider when choosing a pediatrician and why the one located closest to you isn’t necessarily the best option  A baby essentials guide, covering everything from diapers to clothes shopping to bathing (No questions will be left unanswered!) And much more... It doesn’t matter how many times you’ve already given birth, it never hurts to be overly prepared and know what to do before any potential issues arise. No pregnancy is the same, so you should treat each one as if it were your first, giving it your full attention and care. Rather than torture yourself with never-ending irrational worries every day of your pregnancy and beyond, fill your head with the necessary knowledge and finally put your mind to rest. After all, nothing can ruin an experience more than anxiety and concern. Embrace motherhood with open arms and trust in yourself that you know what’s best for both you and your unborn baby. If you want to extinguish any doubts or fears you may have about motherhood and experience a healthy, happy pregnancy, then scroll up and click the “buy now” button right now.

Expecting a Baby for New Moms

Summary

Congratulations! Be prepared, be aware, and be happy. When that home pregnancy test kit or blood test returns positive, your world spines off. Immediately, you start thinking of all the things you out to buy, all the ways you ought to prepare, and all the changes you will undergo.  Amid the excitement, it is normal to feel panicky because the thought of carrying a baby to term, taking care of your health as well as the health of the baby, and caring for a baby after birth is overwhelming.  The best way to prepare yourself for motherhood as well as pregnancy is to become knowledgeable. In this guide, Expecting a Baby for New Moms, we shall look at and understand the trimesters and the changes you can expect to see as your pregnancy progresses. You will also learn about how to take care of your health and your baby’s as well as how to prepare for labor and child birth. You can never be 100 percent certain you are pregnant until you take a home pregnancy test or a blood test at your OB’s office. To get the correct results, do the test after missing your menstrual period. A missed period does not necessarily mean you are pregnant, but it is one of the major signs indicating you could be pregnant.  To count the duration of a pregnancy, we start from the first day of your last menstrual period up to the 37th-40th week. These 37-40 weeks further divide into three trimesters that last 13 weeks each.  The first trimester starts on the first week, which begins on the first day of your last menstrual period all through to the 13th week. During the first trimester, although your pregnancy may not show, your body is going through many internal changes as it seeks to accommodate the growing fetus. To make this guide an easier listen and more comprehensible, we shall divide each trimester into individual weeks. Here is what to expect in every week of the first trimester. Preview of what you'll learn: What to expect in the first trimester Changes in your body Your baby’s development Cravings and unusual hunger Diet and fitness for the first trimester What to expect in the second trimester Diet and fitness for the second trimester  Much, much more!

Power Over Pornography

Summary

Jason, like many people, is an addict. His addiction doesn't center on any drug or alcohol. He's a pornography and masturbation addict, and the insidious nature of his addiction erodes his self-worth, his relationships, and his career. Jason meets David at a 12-step meeting, where David offers him a new approach to treating pornography addiction. Through a series of meetings, David guides Jason as he successfully overcomes his addiction, a process supported by glimpses into Jason's family and how his relationships improve as pornography loses its hold on his life. Jason's story is fictional. The treatment plan he follows is very real. Designed by author and pornography addiction treatment expert Brian Brandenburg, the strategies found in Power over Pornography are praised by those who, having taken part in Brandenburg's program, now pursue lives free of pornographic viewing. Brandenburg's innovative treatment plan comes at a crucial moment in the fight against pornography and masturbation addiction. A generation of Internet-savvy children has grown up with access to pornography, quite literally, at their keyboard-typing fingertips. The images and videos they view online are far more graphic than their parents can imagine. Now, the children of this generation have become young adults, with many addicted to the instant gratification of pornography. Like Jason, most pornography and masturbation addicts are male, but women are also afflicted. Maintaining normal, healthy relationships becomes almost impossible while in the grip of pornography. Anxiety and guilt over your actions worsen into clinical depression and self-loathing. Work productivity suffers, and an addict with on-the-job access to the Internet is always a few mouse clicks away from job termination and scandal. Jason and others in his situation are discovering traditional 12-step programs don't address key aspects of pornography and masturbation addiction.

The Business of Baby

Summary

Why, despite our state-of-the-art medical technology, does the United States have among the highest maternal and infant mortality rates in the industrialized world? Why do pregnant women who are planning to breastfeed receive "free" samples of infant formula from American obstetricians? Why are American newborns given a vaccine at birth against hepatitis B, a sexually transmitted disease? The Business of Baby, an eye-opening work of investigative journalism, exposes how current cultural practices during pregnancy, childbirth, and the first year of a baby's life, are not based on the best evidence or the most modern science. Rather, as the audiobook reveals, current cultural practices reflect how American moms and their babies are being undermined by corporate interests. An illuminating combination of meticulous research and in-depth interviews with parents, doctors, midwives, nurses, health care administrators, and scientists, Margulis's impassioned and eloquent critique is shocking, groundbreaking, and revelatory. The Business of Baby arms parents with the information they need to make informed decisions about their own health and the health of their infants.

Summary

Women today want to have it all; they not only want to have their own lives outside of the home and the workplace, but they want a healthy, stable relationship, to excel in their careers, and some also want to become mothers. This change in our cultural outlook, and the expansion of options for women, has led to record numbers of women deciding not to have children at all, to wait until later in life to get married, or to start trying to conceive a child. For those who decide that they want to wait, the options for birth control are many and varied, and while there is certainly nothing wrong with waiting to have children, it can be more difficult for women to conceive the longer that you wait. With more women waiting to conceive, there is a greater need for women to understand their options and for doctors to provide solutions to the problems that these women are facing. With that said, if you are considering waiting to have children, or are getting ready to start trying, you'll want to get a good idea of how your body and its cycles work, how you can use your body's natural cycle to help you prevent pregnancy, and also how you can use your body's cycle to your advantage when trying to conceive. So, let's get started!

Sexploitation

Summary

As surprising as it may be to parents, young people today are immersed in porn culture everywhere they look. Through Internet porn, gaming, social media, marketing, and advertising, kids today have a much broader view of social and sexual possibilities, which makes it difficult for them to establish appropriate expectations or to feel adequate in their own sexuality. Even more important, no one is talking to kids directly about the problem. Parents tend to convince themselves that their children are immune to cultural influences, wait until it comes up, or hope schools and pediatricians will address the issues. Educators and doctors may be able to start the conversation, but it is fundamentally a parent's job to provide information about sex and relationships early and often to help young people find their way through their social and sexual lives. Delaying the necessary but awkward conversations with their kids leaves them vulnerable. The media, marketers, and porn and gaming industries are eager to step in anywhere parents choose to hold back. Sexploitation exposes the truth to parents, kids, educators, and the medical profession about the seen and unseen influences affecting children, inspiring parents to take the role as the primary sexuality educator. With more information, parents will gain conviction to discuss and develop values, expectations, boundaries, and rules with their kids. Kids who enter their teens with accurate information and truths stand a better chance of developing an "inner compass" when it comes to sex and relationships, which sets them up for a healthy adulthood. In her comic and straightforward style, Pierce brings together the latest research with anecdotal stories shared with her by high school and college students in the thick of it.

Summary

A micro-preemie fights for survival in this extraordinary and gorgeously told memoir by her parents, both award-winning journalists. Juniper French was born four months early, at 23 weeks' gestation. She weighed one pound, four ounces, and her twiggy body was the length of a Barbie doll. Her head was smaller than a tennis ball, her skin was nearly translucent, and through her chest you could see her flickering heart. Babies like Juniper, born at the edge of viability, trigger the question: Which is the greater act of love - to save her or to let her go? Kelley and Thomas French chose to fight for Juniper's life, and this is their incredible tale. In one exquisite memoir, the authors explore the border between what is possible and what is right. They marvel at the science that conceived and sustained their daughter and the love that made the difference. They probe the bond between a mother and a baby, between a husband and a wife. They trace the journey of their family from its fragile beginning to the miraculous survival of their now thriving daughter.

Summary

Dave Barry exposes natural childbirth for what it is: a pop phenomenon of the 1960's that, along with paisley bell-bottoms and creative sideburns, deserves a rest. His new book gives parents-to-be the hard facts they need. He examines the new federal law requiring prospective fathers to free themselves from their self-made macho prison - to laugh, cry, love and just generally behave like certified wimps. Barry reveals, for the first time, the secret chant for painless childbirth. He also reveals why no secret chant could possibly take a woman's mind off the fact that she is in such pain, that she wants a gigantic comet to crash into the earth and kill her and her husband and the doctor and the nurses and everyone else in the world.

Pregnancy, Childbirth, and the Newborn

Summary

The up-to-date and authoritative pregnancy guide that has sold 1.5 million copies - by recognizing that "one size fits all" doesn't apply to maternity care Parents love this book because it puts them in control; experts love it because it's based on the latest medical research and recommendations from leading health organizations. Pregnancy, Childbirth, and the Newborn provides the information and guidance you need to make informed decisions about having a safe and satisfying pregnancy, birth, and postpartum period - decisions that reflect your preferences, priorities, and values.  Unlike pregnancy guides that can overwhelm and alarm by telling you up front all the things that can possibly go wrong, this book first describes normal, healthy processes, their typical variations, and the usual care practices for monitoring them. Only then does it cover possible complications and the care practices and procedures for resolving them. Throughout, the presentation is crystal-clear, the tone is reassuring, and the voice is empowering. And the language is inclusive, reflecting today's various family configurations such as single-parent families, blended families formed by second marriages, families with gay and lesbian parents, and families formed by open adoption or surrogacy. From sensible nutrition advice to realistic birth plans, from birth doulas when desired to cesareans when needed, from reducing stress during pregnancy to caring for yourself as well as your baby after birth, this pregnancy guide speaks to today's parents-to-be like no other.    PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

27 Ways to Increase Your Child's IQ

1 rating

Summary

Powerful strategies to unlock your children's potential and position them for academic and career success.

According to Jordan Peterson, professor of psychology at the University of Toronto, "If you want to be the best at what you are doing, then having an IQ above 145 is a necessity - maybe pushing 160 in some situations."

In today's complex society, people with an average IQ of around 100 who are aspiring to achieve extraordinary academic success or become the best in their field will be at a disadvantage. In most professions, people with a high IQ are at an advantage over those with an average IQ. High-IQ people are good learners. They are flexible, adaptable, and excellent problem solvers - qualities that are essential for academic and career success.

This unique book provides essential information for parents who want to help their children increase their IQ. Decades of scientific research is distilled into 27 powerful, easy-to-understand strategies that parents can use to maximize their child's IQ and unlock their true potential.

In this book, you will discover:

What parents need to consider before conceiving

What mothers can do during pregnancy to boost their child's IQ

How a child's IQ is affected by the attitude and behavior of parents

The "Pygmalion Effect" and how it impacts performance at school

Which early-age activities help to build a child's IQ

Why diet is critical to IQ and how foods can increase or decrease IQ

A little-known technique to increase IQ by 40 points

And much more.

The New Rules of Pregnancy

Summary

Finally, a calming pregnancy book that cuts through the noise to tell expectant mothers exactly what they need to know - and what they can stop obsessing about and over-researching.  In The New Rules of Pregnancy, two leading OB-GYNs guide you, the modern pregnant woman, through all aspects of pregnant life in an easy-to-digest, compassionate, and motivating way. Instead of a detailed week-by-week look at your baby’s development, it’s all about you and how to help your pregnancy go as smoothly as possible. It assumes an intelligent, busy listener (who, somewhere inside, is shouting, “Just tell me what to do!”). Every aspect of pregnant life is covered - from the practical details (how to fly pregnant) to the complex issues (“What makes it postpartum depression?”).  The book also covers that critical “fourth trimester” - “Nursing” and “How to Feel Like Yourself Again” - because once the baby is born, self-care typically goes out the window, and you really need someone to have your back. Its strong point of view and expertise come from gynecologist Adrienne Simone and obstetrician Jaqueline Worth - two renowned New York doctors dedicated to bringing patients the safest, calmest, least invasive pregnancies possible. The book’s voice - motivating, supportive, real - comes from Danielle Claro, coauthor of The New Health Rules.

Pornage

Summary

Dentro al porno ci siamo tutti. Gaudenti e bacchettoni, adolescenti e attempati, single e fidanzati. È il video hot che teniamo in sottofondo mentre scriviamo una mail al capo. È il messaggio sexy che ci compare sullo schermo del telefono alla fine di un appuntamento noioso. È il brivido che ci attraversa in metropolitana immaginandoci avvinghiati allo sconosciuto seduto davanti a noi. Ma è anche l'adulto che si eccita pagando per essere trattato come un bambino, mangiare omogeneizzati e giocare col pongo, o il filmato a luci rosse di un ultrasettantenne i cui amplessi vengono visualizzati in rete da milioni di utenti entusiasti. Con "Pornage" Barbara Costa ci spalanca le porte del sesso contemporaneo: un universo in cui la tecnologia più all'avanguardia si unisce alla perversione più raffinata e le sperimentazioni in camera da letto aprono la strada al cambiamento sociale.  In questo audiolibro il porno diventa una lente di ingrandimento attraverso la quale guardare il presente, lo specchio osceno in cui la collettività si riflette e dalle cui immagini viene a sua volta plasmata. Come nella inedita cartina geografica dell'Italia ricavata dai risultati delle ricerche su Pornhub regione per regione, o in quella che mostra la diffusione dei nuovi modelli di famiglia nati dal poliamore e dal superamento delle identità di genere. "Pornage" è un racconto in cui si mescolano l'alto e il basso, la fisicità delle escort e la "pura utopia" - come la definisce Giampiero Mughini nella sua prefazione - delle fantasie pornografiche. Un'opera che delinea il mondo che abitiamo e quello che abiteremo. Perché nei porno in virtual reality possiamo godere dei nostri sogni di onnipotenza futuri e le sex realdolls di oggi, obbedienti robot del sesso dotate di intelligenza artificiale, sono già gli ibridi uomo-macchina di domani.

Your Perineum

Summary

The perineum is a group of muscles that are shaped like a “hammock” between the pubic bone and the tailbone. It supports the abdominal organs such as the bladder, uterus, and rectum, and controls the evacuation of stools, gas, and urine. It also promotes the sensation of pleasure during sexual encounters and facilitates the passage of the baby during childbirth.  It is therefore a core support area of the body which is often overlooked. A healthy perineum prevents urinary or anal incontinence, pelvic organ descent, and allows for a fulfilling sex life.

What No One Tells You About Pregnancy

Summary

Okay, you're pregnant...and now? Did they make you believe it will all be easy, pink, shiny, and gorgeous? Bullshit. The truth is, it won't be easy.  You will have to deal with the changes in your body, the morning sickness, the (unsolicited) advice from everyone around you, not to mention the strain of carrying a weight in your belly for nine months. This is going to be a difficult period, but it will undoubtedly be an unforgettable experience. Do you feel truly prepared to face this trip? Do you think you know everything there is to know about this topic? If you are going through this beautiful but demanding period of your life and want to prepare yourself psychologically in the right way, then this guide is for you. This book is a valuable guide for expectant moms (and their partners) who aren't looking for some counsel but sincere words from those who have already gone through this journey. Elizabeth Ramirez will offer you a journey through emotions not only of childbirth, but of the nine months leading up to the happy event. "It is necessary to live the emotions," she says, "to welcome them with joy and positivity, even when we see some clouds on the horizon." Elizabeth Ramirez explains that the idea of writing this book stems from a desire to put her experience as a doula and her passion for writing at the service of people who are in a delicate moment in their life. She wanted to talk about pregnancy in an alternative way that's far from rhetoric and to tell women everything that she has never been told and that, instead, would have made a positive difference. Here's everything you need to know to prepare for the healthiest possible pregnancy and at the childbirth of your healthy baby. The author gives you practical tips on how to get your body into the best baby-making shape, which lifestyle habits are better to quit, and what are your physical and emotional transformations in these nine months. Whether you are in your first pregnancy or you just want to listen to a modern and up-to-date guide on this topic, here's everything you were never told about being pregnant.

Summary Bundle: Diet & Pregnancy includes Summary of In Defense of Food and Summary of Ina May's Guide to Childbirth. Summary of In Defense of Food: "The human animal is adapted to, and apparently can thrive on, an extraordinary range of different diets, but the Western diet, however you define it, does not seem to be one of them." (Michael Pollan) This is a manifesto about a food lover who is passionate about restoring the natural order of things and making his listeners eat real food instead of the far unhealthier alternative.  Pollan believes that by just paying a little more for well-grown food and buying less, we are able to become healthier individuals who are doing our part for the community and protecting the environment. Summary of Ina May's Guide to Childbirth: "It is important to keep in mind that our bodies must work pretty well, or there wouldn't be so many humans on the planet." (Ina May) You don't have to depend on drugs in order to have a painless labor. Your body is a powerful tool capable of achieving wonderful things, including mitigating the pain of birth.  Ina May will teach you how massage can deliver a better experience than being medicated while having your children. She will also walk you through what happens during labor and how to make it pleasing. There is a lot of ground to cover but don't worry! This book is easy-to-listen and really informative. What if you could learn 3X more in 2X less time? How much faster could you accelerate to reach your goals?  Start accelerating your growth today by clicking on the "buy now" button.
