I feel humbled to have been offered the opportunity to prepare the foreword for such an important book. Dr. Kevin Lau's endeavor to author a book on pregnancy and scoliosis is a commendable undertaking, as the topic is one that perplexes many people indeed. Who could be better able to share his expert knowledge and ability to understand the complexities of getting pregnant with scoliosis than an experienced chiropractor? Dr. Kevin Lau is a graduate in Doctor of Chiropractic from RMIT University, Melbourne (Australia) and holds a Masters in Holistic Nutrition. He is also a member of the International Society on Scoliosis Orthopaedic and Rehabilitation Treatment (SOSORT).
This is a wonderful source of information for scoliotic patients who wish to enjoy the process of their pregnancy while taking care of their baby in the healthiest possible manner. I recommend this book for anybody who wants to understand how scoliosis may affect their pregnancy and what steps can be taken in order to safeguard their health.

"As the book title says, it's an essential guide. I found the guide to be very helpful and found that it did in fact help me feel more comfortable during my pregnancy. It isn't too boring to read either, which was a plus for me."

"Overall, this book was very helpful. It gave me the information I needed to know to take care of myself and my baby during my pregnancy (I'm 4 months in now). The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because of its steep price. That said, however, I believe that you get what you pay for and this was somewhat worth it."
- Anna Yang (review from amazon.com)
"Overall this book does the trick. My wife is 15 weeks pregnant with our first child, and so far we find this book pretty useful. I like the way they put all the unlikely risks/ diseases in an appendix at the back, so as not to scare the vast majority of mothers who will have a healthy pregnancy and baby. I was impressed with the level of knowledge the author had on scoliosis as our mid wife and doctors tend to know very little or get defensive when we ask them about my wife's spine.Besides a few complaints about the layout, I find this book overall to be very useful and would recommend it."
