Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

You're expecting more than one baby? Congratulations! Like all mothers-to-be, you're experiencing the full spectrum of human emotions: joy, fear, confusion, and excitement; maybe all at once. As a woman pregnant with more than one baby, you're feeling all these things...only more so!

In When You're Expecting Twins, Triplets, or Quads,Dr. Barbara Luke, a renowned expert on the prenatal care of multiples, outlines a practical, nutrition-based program to keep you and your babies healthy and offers a comprehensive tour of what you can expect during your unique pregnancy and childbirth experience. Women who follow this program experience significantly fewer complications during pregnancy — and their babies are born weighing 20 to 35 percent more than the average twin, triplet, or quad! Included is crucial information on:

  • finding a qualified maternal/fetal medicine specialist

  • dietary guidelines for maximizing birth weight

  • safe limits on exercise and physical activity

  • taking a leave from work and negotiating your best deal

  • reducing your risk for pregnancy complications

  • recognizing signs of preterm labor and what to do about

Effective, encouraging, and up-to-date, When You're Expecting Twins, Triplets, or Quads is essential for you and your babies.
