Wonderful Book

This was the first book I bought about pregnancy. I bought it on sale even before I found out I was expecting. The book is very well organized and very easy to read. It contains great explanation for every possible question you may have about your pregnancy. It is also very richly illustrated with photos, drawings and charts. I still keep it next to my bed and read it every now and then. I'd definitely recommend this book for my friends when they get pregnant.

Authoritative Answers to Hundreds of Questions

As we know, doctors have become increasingly busy. You are lucky if you can get all your questions answered. To be well informed about pregnancy and birth, it does help to read as many books as possible on the subject. The information presented here covers every stage of pregnancy from conception to childbirth. It also covers the baby's first six weeks. The advice is given by a team of two obstetricians and a midwife in a highly accessible format. Dr. Christoph Lees specializes in obstetrics, Dr. Karina has practiced in various teaching hospitals and is also a consultant. Grainne McCartan has worked as a community midwife. The book is organized into eight color-coded thematic sections for easy reference. Being pregnant today is far different than being pregnant 25 years ago. Today's mother prepares for pregnancy, takes prenatal care very seriously, understands how her baby is developing, is well-informed on changes in her body, knows how to stay fit and healthy, understands issues in pregnancy, is prepared for labor and birth and has all this information at her disposal in this handy reference. New mothers who did not plan their pregnancy will be happy to learn that the birth control pills they are taking will rapidly clear from their bodies and won't hurt the baby. What happens at a prenatal visit? Did you know that Toxoplasmosis is a parasitic disease passed on to humans by domestic cats? A good reason to make your husband change the litter box. I didn't realize that pregnant women should also wear gloves when doing yard work. You will enjoy reading about which herbal remedies are fine to take in pregnancy. Ginger can help the digestive system and prevent nausea. There are so many items in this book you will want to read about. It is better to be well prepared for all the items in this book. What happens if you have a breech birth? What are the stages of labor? What if I am having twins? How do I breastfeed? What happens if my baby must be in intensive care? How should I exercise before and after the birth. Can I have sex at all stages of my pregnancy? What happens in the first, second and third trimesters? What does my baby look like as he/she grows? Should I refuse an invasive test? How will my family adjust to a new baby? What is postpartum depression? Pregnancy and childbirth is uncharted territory for new mothers-to-be. With this book in hand, you will have the guidance you need to help you have a happy, healthy pregnancy and labor. ~The Rebecca Review

A must have for expectant mothers

I used this book more than any other book during my pregnancy. I have given it to all my friends that are pregnant. It is a great step by step of what is happening with your baby and your body.

A+ Pregnancy Handbook

This book is used in my first trimester pregnancy classes. I looked at over 30 books to use in my classes. Hats off to Dorling Kindersley for a job well done!! The pages are bright and crisp. The pictures are laid out in just the right spots. The book covers pre-conception to Birth and beyond. It is a perfect first time mother's handbook. Enjoy!!

Excellent resource.

I found the book to be an excellent resource. Informative and easy to understand, from all aspects of conception, birth, and early child care I thoroughly recommend it.
