Best pregnancy reference I've seen
If you want to buy only one book to help you through your pregnancy, this is it. I bought several, but this is the one I reach for when I have a worrisome symptom or question or am just curious about the baby's development. The others are gathering dust on my bookshelf. It covers the pregnancy month by month including the baby's growth, physical and emotional changes the mother encounters, appointments with your health care provider and tips on what types of symptoms need to be acted on right away and what can wait for your next appointment. It also has chapters on birth, the baby's first few weeks, post-partum care for mothers, and decision guides for many questions that come up during pregnancy, childbirth and parenthood (from genetic screening to pain relief during birth to going back to work or when to have another child). Complications during pregnancy and birth are also discussed clearly, such that worries are reduced and I feel prepared (as far as that is possible) for whatever may come. An excellent index helps locate all this information quickly.
