Magazine Review: Sacred Pregnancy - Spring 2013 edition

Let me just start by saying: SUBSCRIBE TO THIS MAGAZINE! Dooooo eeeet! Dooo eeet now!

It took about an hour and a half to open on my computer. I have no earthly idea why and will chalk it up to my computer being old and well-loved. I almost, almost gave up and said I couldn't do the review. That would've been my loss and I'm glad I didn't do it.

Visually, this magazine is just stunning. I never wanted to read anything, because I was so enamored with its visual beauty. Eventually, though, I did tear myself away to read through the content. I wasn't sorry I did.
Some of the writing took my breath away. There was a story about a vision one woman had of the daughter she would later birth. Wow. Just wow. Also, I'm taking the idea for the "gratitude banner" and making it my own. Soon, my son's room will be adorned with a banner of my thankfulness for the wonder that is him. The placenta smoothie recipe sound amazing. Every story, every photo, even every ad spoke to me. I am in love!

The only thing I would change is the recipes for baby food. I'd delete them. I would've loved them a couple years ago, but have now learned of baby led weaning and believe in that wholeheartedly. Skip the baby food. That being said, those recipes look so yummy, I might make them for myself!

Overall, this magazine is a big winner. I want to read it while curled up with a some sort of hippie tea (I don't drink tea, so I don't know which one I'd drink, but I know that's what I picture) on a bean bag on a warm autumn evening near the window at sunset. Yes, the vision I have of myself reading this magazine is that specific. Don't ask me why, but it's all good and warm and pure and enlightening and empowering.

Bottom line: subscribe. Subscribe now. Give the gift of subscriptions, too. Trust me, you won't be sorry.
