When I became pregnant, the first thing I did was head down to the Herbivore store in search of good reading material. I remember that Michelle asked if I needed anything, and me, sort of puzzled, wondered aloud where the books on vegan pregnancy were. “NOWHERE” she exclaimed. “You should write one!” We had a little laugh about that, then had a good squeal about babies and pregnancy. That was the beginning of our friendship.
And now, almost 2 years later, well . . . I took her advice! I wrote a handbook to help plant-eaters navigate their pregnancies, and Herbivore is going to publish it!

The Vegan Pregnancy Survival Guide is a comprehensive reference book that covers it all – from straightforward nutrition and strategies for maximizing meals, to choosing cruelty-free antacids and how to throw a vegan baby shower – and *everything* in between!
I am thrilled to be working with such amazing, inspiring people on this project, and I’m honored to be able to share this information with the world. Look for The Vegan Pregnancy Survival Guide to hit the ‘shelves’ in early summer 2011!
