The most empowering, informative, and reassuring pregnancy guide for moms-to-be is now thoroughly revised! This new edition of Great Expectations: Pregnancy and Childbirth still has everything moms loved about the first book, including the quick-reference format and appealing mom-to-mom voice. Prospective moms will find the most current and comprehensive week-to-week section and Internet resources, as well up-to-date advice on prenatal testing, weight and nutrition, pregnancy for older women; c-sections, and newborns.
Great Expectations: Pregnancy and Childbirth gives readers the confidence they need to ask their obstetrician, midwife, or family practitioner the right questions at the right time.
