Gwyneth Paltrow's Maternity Must-Haves

I’m sure you’ve heard of Gwyneth Paltrow’s weekly “lifestyle journal” GOOP, delivered directly via email.

Well she recently put together a pregnancy addition with all of her maternity favorites — from nursery decor to must-read books.

And I have to say, I very much agree! While she, of course, featured designer maternity jeans and covet-worthy nursery furniture that most of us can’t afford, she also included plenty of down-to-earth picks for the non-celebrities amongst us. (And no one ever accused the girl of not having style.)

Here are 10 of my favorites from GOOP:

  • Dr. Gowri Motha and the Gentle Birth Method 1 of 10
    Dr. Gowri Motha and the Gentle Birth Method
    I haven't read this particular book or practiced the Gentle Birth Method myself, but Gwyneth is a firm believer of this obstetrician-turned-doula who was "invaluable" during her pregnancy. Anyone who aims to reduce the stress and difficulties of labor is okay in my book.
