All Pregnant Woman Should Read This

It is a medical book so it may take some getting used to the lingo, if you aren't already acquainted with medical terms, but that is non existent compared to what information a soon to be mother will receive! I have seen this information work over and over again for woman from all over the world. I have seen moms who usually deliver babies early go to their due dates, I have seen moms who's blood pressure was so high their were scheduled for induction only to be told everything is OK after implementing higher protein,salting food to taste, and more vegetables to their diets. I really wish this book was more in mainstream reading for women, it's worth it's weight in gold.

All Caregivers & Mom's To Be Must Read!

After using this doctor's website for myself and referring other pregnant Mom's to it, I went ahead and got the book. A great easy read that is essential for all women to have heatlhy pregnancies and babies! Tom Brewer was a great doctor and women's advocate!

Eating Well - It can be a matter of life and death.

I read this book in preparation for becoming a childbirth educator. What an eye-opener this book is. Metabolic toxemia is a terrible condition (disease) that can cost a mother her baby's life and her own. Toxemia has one very simple prevention - eat! Study after study presents the facts - a well-balanced diet is an important part of a healthy pregnancy. The book includes a lay-out of what a healthy pregnancy diet should include and gives you ideas on how to achieve your goals. A very important book for all obstetricians, or anyone who cares for pregnant women. A very important book for the woman who wants to take charge of her own health and pregnancy.

Provides essential information on toxemia

Dr. Brewer's book, Metabolic Toxemia of Late Pregnancy, is a difficult book to read for the non-medical person but it provides essential information on toxemia and how to avoid this potentially deadly disease of pregnancy. It is written by a doctor for a doctor. As a clinician studying over 500 women with toxemia over a 10 year period, he presents convincing proof in the form of case studies, that he understood the disease, how to treat it, and how to prevent it. I would recommend any pregnant woman who is at risk or showing signs of developing toxemia to suggest the book to their doctor.
