There's a pretty lil green book called the Complete Organic Pregnancy ($10).

The text guides mamas–to–be down a "green" path of healthy living for themselves and their unborn child without scaring them into a hole.

Authors Deirdre Dolan and Alexandra Zissu identify hidden toxins and other harmful agents that mums can avoid or replace. An eye opening read, the book even dishes on certain cosmetics that aren't good for mommy or her fetus.

Divided into sections, the book helps parents through different phases of parenthood: transforming, growing and living. Having the stages broken out helps expecting parents figure out what needs tending to and when. The paperback also features personal diaries from well–known "green" parents and recipes from organic chefs. A fan of most any cuisine, I was psyched to see ideas on how to cook organic.

Birth, parenting and life after baby bring an element of uncertainty so many parents will delight in knowing they have made their womb and surroundings as safe as organically possible.
