Publisher Comments:

The pregnancy resource you can trust: medically reliable information, mom-to-mom advice.

If you want the real deal on pregnancy, you've come to the right book! Drs. Yvonne Bohn, Allison Hill, and Alane Park are three top obstetricians who have personally welcomed more than 10,000 babies into the world. But they've been on the other side of the ultrasound too--as mothers themselves, they have each experienced the joys and anxieties of pregnancy firsthand. Morning sickness . . . unexpected contractions . . . midnight feedings . . . even serious complications . . . theyve been there! Now they share everything you need to know about this exciting, life-changing journey.

Written in a clear and friendly style, The Mommy Docs' Ultimate Guide to Pregnancy and Birth offers the most up-to-date medical guidance. It's packed with real-life stories from new moms and practical tips straight from the Docs' office. From pre-conception to postpartum, you'll find answers to your most pressing questions, including:

  • Can birth control pills cause fertility problems?
  • When will I start showing?
  • Which prenatal tests do I really need?
  • Is my baby getting the right nutrition?
  • Is it true that I can't touch a cat, eat sushi, or color my hair for nine months?
  • If I get a cold, is it safe to take medication?
  • How do I create a birth plan?
  • What if I go into labor alone?
  • If I've had a cesarean delivery before, will I need to have one with my next pregnancy?
  • How can I make breastfeeding easier?

This extraordinarily comprehensive guide also includes chapters on diet and exercise, high-risk pregnancies, and the most often-repeated myths. Complete with illustrations of your baby's development, The Mommy Docs' Ultimate Guide to Pregnancy and Birth is your reassuring resource for a healthy and stress-free pregnancy.

 

Synopsis:

From three top ob/gyn's--the personalities of the television series Deliver Me--comes this comprehensive pregnancy resource that's medically reliable and mom-to-mom relatable.

Synopsis:

Having delivered more than 10,000 babies combined, this team has seen it all! Drs. Bohn, Hill, and Park witness the thrills of pregnancy every day--but they've also seen far too many women struggle, not necessarily because of high-risk medical factors but instead from a lack of accurate information. Some of these half-truths and old wives' tales are even perpetuated on the pages of the most trusted pregnancy guides on the market.

The Mommy Docs' Ultimate Guide to Pregnancy and Birth is packed with the most up-to-date, relevant, and thoroughly researched advice filtered through the authors' daily lives as dedicated ob/gyn's and mothers. Written in a clear and friendly style, each chapter includes sections devoted to frequently asked questions (Can I deliver naturally if I've had a C-section in the past?) and oft-repeated myths (If my belly is shaped this way, won't I be having a boy?). Trimester by trimester, from before conception to after delivery, this extraordinarily comprehensive and reassuring guide provides everything a modern woman needs to know for a healthy, happy, and stress-free pregnancy.
