About the Author

Erica Chidi Cohen is a doula, lactation counselor and trained chef. She is also the co-founder and CEO of LOOM, providing education, services, and inclusive community to the reproductively-curious, pregnant and parenting. Raised in the United States and South Africa by a doctor father and nurse mother, she began her career in the world of contemporary art and public relations, but found herself drawn to helping others achieve their wellness goals. Stimulated but unfulfilled, she decided to act on her desire to positively impact the lives of women and families by training to become a doula. She soon built a successful solo practice which quickly gained national visibility due to her judgement-free philosophy that women should receive unconditional support no matter how or where they choose to birth. Erica empowers people to trust themselves and navigate pregnancy and early parenthood with confidence. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband.

Reviews

"A great read for the modern parent! It's what I would recommend to my own friends to read"- Abby Epstein, Director The Business Of Being Born
"Beyond having a seemingly encyclopedic knowledge of all things pregnancy, birth, and baby, Erica Chidi Cohen truly cares about the wellbeing of all mothers, babies, and partners. This book is for everyone-regardless of their birth preferences, background, or beliefs. The knowledge my husband and I gained reading this book has us feeling prepared, empowered, and ready for whatever lies ahead."- Whitney Port, author, fashion designer, and television personality
"What a gift to new and expecting moms. You have no idea the mountain and rollercoaster you're about to embark on, but Nurture somehow gives you a peek in and gives you essential information to help ground you."- Catherine McCord, founder of Weelicious and One Potato
"Erica's loving, practical, and judgment-free approach is rich in useful, calming advice. I have no doubt that you'll love having Erica's comforting voice guide you through this extraordinary, exciting journey."-Harvey Karp, MD, FAAP, author of the DVD/book, The Happiest Baby on the Block, and The Happiest Toddler on the Block
"Erica is one of the warmest, kindest women I know, so it's no surprise that Nurture reveals how to take gentle care of yourself during pregnancy, childbirth, and motherhood (as you gradually develop what she calls your "mother muscle"). Nurture supports all different approaches-home births, epidurals, breastfeeding, bottle feeding-so you can choose your own path with Erica's reassuring advice. It's like having an expert doula and friend at your fingertips. I'd recommend this book for the nightstand of every expectant mother."-Joanna Goddard, founder of the women's lifestyle website Cup of Jo
