It’s sitting right on my desk as I write. It’s my wife’s (Alia Almoayed) latest book – I WANT A HEALTHY PREGNANCY!
Fresh out of the printers. I got the first copy!
This book has been in the making for more than two years. She wrote it while she was pregnant, and then fixed it and
perfected it after our son was born. As you can imagine, there were many delays because as she says, “working and mothering just don’t mix very well.”
Honestly, you have to get your hands on this book. It is just amazing. And it will be available in Bahrain this month.
Book launch – I WANT A HEALTHY PREGNANCY
Date: Saturday the 29th January 2011
Time: 11am-1pm (for the book signing)
Place: Organic Foods & Cafe (Seef Mall new extension – Bahrain)
Bring your kids, cousins, friends, pets (ok, maybe not the pets!).
ALL ARE WELCOME
Make sure you’re on Alia’s email list to get the news as soon as it hits the stores.
Apparently, there will also be a special gift for people on her list, but don’t tell her I told you 🙂
If you’re not pregnant (or if you are a man, like me), this book can make the perfect gift!
Even better, you should read it even if you’re a man. It gives a fantastic insight into the world of pregnant women. It will make it much easier to relate to your partner and know what you can do to help.
To find out more, click on the link below to listen to the first ever interview Alia did about the book with Radio Bahrain DJ Krazy Kevin. All the gossip, all the details! You’ll love it. You’ll even see Kevin’s picture holding his precious copy
If you prefer Arabic, this link is an amazing talk she did on Bahrain
TV about health for pregnant women. Not to be missed.

“Alia is a gifted writer. I read the book in one go. It feels so personal,
coming from the hopes, wishes, fears, and anxiety of a pregnant woman.
It is like a memoir and self-help book with a very simple way of telling a
story. Nutrition is critical to a healthy pregnancy and Alia does a great
job at giving great advice plus first-hand experience. A precious
