Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This comprehensive, beautifully packaged guide celebrates the unique culture and heritage of African-Americans while providing all the information expectant parents need

Created specifically for the needs of the African-American mother-to-be, this wonderfully comprehensive reference contains everything the pregnant woman needs to know about conception, prenatal care, labor, delivery, and baby care.

Wonderfully conversational in tone, this intuitive step-by-step guide provides the latest information on:
-- Health risks such as high blood pressure, diabetes and sickle cell anemia, which blacks suffer from disproportionately
-- Adapting traditional down home cooking recipes to provide healthful eating for mother and baby
-- The special needs of single mothers
-- Spiritual, emotional, and mental health during pregnancy
-- Cultural information passed down from generation to generation
-- Interviews with midwives, doctors, fitness experts, and nutritionists.

Mama's Little Baby is the first book to provide complete, accessible, and reassuring information for all expectant black mothers (and fathers) looking forward to a healthy, happy baby.
-- Fully illustrated with more than 100 photographs and drawings
-- The What to Expect When You're Expecting for the African-American audience

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [479]-480) and index.
