Product Details

Synopsis
Any woman looking for accurate, reliable, and authoritative information on pregnancy will appreciate this book from the world-class Mayo Clinic. The Mayo Clinic Guide to a Healthy Pregnancy offers hundreds of pages of in-depth information that new parents will find useful and informative. Features include week-by-week updates on baby’s growth, month-by-month changes that mom can expect, and a forty-week pregnancy calendar, as well as a symptom guide and a review of important pregnancy decisions. In this illustrated book you’ll also find advice on getting pregnant, meal planning, healthy exercise, and safe medication use, along with general tips on becoming a parent. This pregnancy book is the result of the efforts of a collective team of pregnancy experts who find nothing in medicine more exciting and satisfying than the birth of a healthy child with a healthy mother. The Mayo Clinic Guide to a Healthy Pregnancy is an essential pregnancy resource for parents-to-be. Back when babies were just daydreams, I recieved “What to Expect When You’re Expecting” (3rd ed.) from a pregnant friend who had an extra copy. Not knowing any better, I was quite pleased. Once I became pregnant and actually needed a guide, however, that changed. I found the book to be poorly organized, overly conversational and condescending in tone (especially given my plans to be a stay-at-home mom), and generally useless for anything other than instilling fear and paranoia. Most exasperating, though, was the “organization.” Symptoms that can arise during varying parts of pregnancy are scattered haphazardly amongst the monthly chapters. This means that the book must be read cover to cover and all material retained in memory if hunting through the index and flipping back and forth between sections doesn’t sound appealing. Enter the “Mayo Clinic Guide to a Healthy Pregnancy.” Hallelujah! Not wanting to suffer through another mediocre guide to pregnancy, I looked through every book I could get my hands on, and this was the only one that satisfied my criteria. It is written by trustworthy professionals in clear yet -professional- language, it provides information on “pregnancy, childbirth and your newborn” in chronological order, and best of all, it contains separate sections entitled, appropriately, “decision guides for pregnancy, childbirth and parenthood,” “pregnancy reference guide,” and “complications of pregnancy and childbirth,” each with a table of contents at the beginning of the section. Instead of having to take a wild guess at which chapter (or, more likely, chapters) cramping might have landed in in “What to Expect” or searching the entire index, I could find it, along with all the other things I might be wondering about, in the reference guide. Blessed simplicity! The “Mayo Clinic Guide to a Healthy Pregnancy” is a trusted companion for those who are considering becoming pregnant, or are pregnant. The text offers the best medical advice available on the subject and answers to commonly asked and difficult questions. This pregnancy book is the work of a team of world-class pregnancy experts from Mayo Clinic, who find nothing in medicine more exciting and satisfying to experience than the birth of a child.A trusted companion and an essential pregnancy resource for parents-to-be By doctors who are also parents.
