Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"More readable, more attractive, and more accessible” is how pregnant couples describe the latest edition of this million plus-copy seller! And, of course, it’s got all the latest medical information and advice. The new edition is designed to expand the retail market for this authoritative and complete guide.

Pregnancy, Childbirth, and the Newborn: The Complete Guide is already one of the bestselling pregnancy books on the market, with more than one million copies in print! Now newly revised and redesigned, this comprehensive, authoritative “bible” provides expectant couples with abundant, valuable information about pregnancy, labor, birth, the postpartum period, and newborn care.

 

This award-winning book presents the latest research-based information on pregnancy, birth, and early parenthood, including:

•   New information on complementary-medicine approaches such as acupuncture

•   Updated information on interventions during childbirth

•   Revised statistics and discussions on cesarean birth and vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC)

•   New advice on informed decision-making, one of the hottest topics in maternity care today

•   Plus much, much more!

The book has been redesigned so it’s more accessible and reader-friendly, with more photos, illustrations, and boxed features that allow for important information to be highlighted. Also included in the new design are fun and informative sidebars, such as “Common Q&As” about pregnancy, childbirth, and newborn care; “In Their Own Words,” in which parents describe their pregnancy, childbirth, and early parenting experiences from their point of view; and “Fact or Fiction?” in which the authors present common misinformation and the facts. New to this edition is an accompanying website, www.PCNGuide.com, where readers can find additional maternity care information as well as helpful forms and worksheets.

Synopsis:

Now completely updated, expanded, and redesigned, expecting couples will find the latest edition of this authoritative and complete pregnancy “bible” to be more readable, more visually appealing, more accessible and, of course, the medical information and advice has been completely updated:

-Accessibility: We’ve used a magazine layout featuring more photos, illustrations, and boxed features to call attention to the most interesting and salient information.

-Readability: The book reads less like a prenatal training guide and more like an interesting, informative book about pregnancy and childbirth (actually, it’s both). Readers will find lots of new boxed features, including “Q&A” (containing frequently asked questions with answers); “Two Views” (first person accounts by mothers who present opposing views about common childbirth issues); “In Their Own Words” (mothers describe their experiences, e.g. with labor or discomfort or pain-relief drugs in their own words); “Fact or Fiction?” (the authors present common misinformation and the facts); “Advice from the Authors” (which presents precisely that).

-Attractive Layout: The new look is more graphic, more visual, and borrows proven techniques from magazines and newspapers to make reading and finding information easier and more productive.

-Updated Medical Information and Advice:

•   Revised discussion on nutrition/serving sizes during pregnancy to reflect the latest information from the USDA

•   Information on complementary induction approaches, like acupuncture

•   Fully updated information on options for labor pain medications

•   Revised discussions on warning signs of complications, interventions during childbirth, preterm labor risk factors, prenatal exams and tests, and exercise during pregnancy to reflect the latest knowledge

•   Revised statistics and discussions on cesarean birth and vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC) to reflect the latest knowledge

•   Revised childhood immunization schedule and information on the vaccines

•   Revised discussion on circumcision

Meadowbrook Press expects the more accessible format and more readable information to expand the market for the book, which has trained more than a million mothers for childbirth over a 30-year period.
