            High Risk: A doctor's notes on pregnancy, birth, and the unexpected

            One doctor's testament to the importance of listening - truly listening - to women and their medical experiences of pregnancy and childbirth. Although there are countless books aimed at expectant mothers and fathers, on subjects from prenatal nutrition to birthing methods, there ...is a lack of works that attempt to illuminate, unpack, and chronicle the complex, potentially life-and-death truth of this fundamental human experience. High Risk fills that gap. From an expert in maternal-foetal medicine - the subspecialty of obstetrics that concerns high-risk pregnancies - here is a timely and unflinching account of all that pregnancy, labour, and birth can entail. As an outspoken champion of women's health, a mother of four, and a humane, wry, and altogether remarkable writer, Dr Chavi Eve Karkowsky tells of miracles and joy, but also of challenge and loss - illustrating the complexity of reproduction and the health services that surround it. With historical insight and journalistic verve, she unpacks what is involved for women, for a family, and for us as a society, and explores what's at risk when these aspects of life remain clouded in mystery and misinformation.

            The Dance of Life: Symmetry, Cells and How We Become Human

            How does life begin? What drives a newly fertilized egg to keep dividing and growing until it becomes 40 trillion cells, a greater number than stars in the galaxy? How do these cells know how to make a human, from lips to kidneys to toes? Magdalena Zernicka-Goetz was pregnant at ...44 when a routine genetic test came back with that dreaded word: abnormal. A quarter of her sampled sells contained abnormalities and she was warned her baby had an increased risk of being miscarried or born with birth defects. Fortunately, Magdalena was also a leading developmental biologist and fuelled by her maternal instinct and her own cutting-edge research, she continued with her pregnancy. Six months later she gave birth to a healthy baby boy and her research went on to prove that - as she had suspected - the human embryo has an amazing and previously unknown ability to correct abnormal cells at an early stage of its development. The Dance Of Life will take you inside the incredible world of life just as it begins and reveal the wonder of the earliest and most profound moment in how we become human. Through Magda's trailblazing research as a Professor at Cambridge - where she has doubled the survival time of human embryos in the laboratory, and made first the artificial embryos from stem cells - you'll discover how early life is programmed to repair and organise itself, what this means for the future of pregnancy, and how we might solve IVF disorders, prevent miscarriages and learn more about the dance of life as it starts to take shape. The Dance Of Life is a moving celebration of the balletic beauty of life's beginnings.

            Harness the power of your own hands and use reiki techniques at home - to harmonise and heal. A reiki session produces a feeling of radiance and a sense of calm, peace, security, and harmony of body and mind. It can also alleviate pain and treat stress and anxiety. The practice i...s intuitive - tuning into internal energy, laying hands on or close to targeted areas of the body to identify blockages and using placement and pressure to encourage a healthy flow of life energy. This ancient Japanese hands-on healing system is gaining interest and popularity as more people turn to Eastern medicine - in particular, Japanese wellness traditions - for inspiration. There is so much more to reiki than the hands-on body work that it is most known for. It is about connecting with the universal energy and coming home to your true self - using meditation, mantra, visualisation, breathwork, and distant as well as hands-on healing. And the more you can do at home, outside of visits to a therapist, the more benefits you will enjoy.

            When We're 64 is a practical guide to what to do before we grow older to have a great later life. This book includes all the essentials on working longer, how to fund retirement, volunteering, where to live and what kind of house you'll need. It covers how to stay healthy--and st...ill live a full life if you develop a health condition--and reveals how your attitude towards aging could actually increase your lifespan. There are sections on relationships with family and friends, as well as caring for older relatives and how to navigate the system, plus a sensitive look at loneliness. You're likely to live longer than you think--and I can tell you now, you're not prepared for it. Today's fifty-year-olds are likely to have an astounding 36 or more years to live. So if you're approaching later life, you need to think very differently about what those extra years will hold. Filled with expert advice and new evidence and tips on how to age well, When We're 64 is an eminently readable light-hearted look at how to plan and prepare for what could be the best years of your life. When we're 64, will we be wasting away, as the Beatles once put it, or will we be healthy, financially secure, and leading full and happy lives?
