By the pregnancy experts at Mayo Clinic ...

At the birth of any baby, the words loved ones want to hear are, "Baby and mom are doing great!"

Mayo Clinic Guide to a Healthy Pregnancy is devoted to helping achieve that happy result through better knowledge.

Based on the knowledge and years of experience by Mayo Clinic experts, this book offers scores of tips and insights to nurture and protect your unborn baby at each stage of pregnancy. It discusses what to expect week by week, month by month. By becoming better informed about pregnancy and childbirth, you'll make better choices leading to better outcomes …

  • The mother-to-be will get medicine's latest knowledge about the growth of her baby, and changes in her own body from conception to birth. Fifteen individual chapters discuss the distinct milestones in each stage of pregnancy.
  • Understand the process of labor and childbirth including cesarean birth.
  • Get guidance on the many issues expectant parents face — managing work and travel during pregnancy … choosing among pain relief options for childbirth … thinking about when to have another child.
  • Find answers to common questions moms-to-be ask their doctors, in a quick and easy alphabetical reference.
  • Prepare for the arrival of your newborn, get tips on taking your baby home and learn about postpartum care for mom.

You'll also learn approaches to the complications that can occur during and after pregnancy, how to deal with pre-existing conditions and how your baby can be affected. Many complications can be avoided with proper care, or managed effectively with today's improved techniques.

We've also included helpful information for dads and partners … making choices about diet, exercise and medications during pregnancy … what to expect at prenatal checkups.

Few events match the significance of bringing a new life into the world. Yet pregnancy and childbirth are accompanied by many questions and concerns by the mother and those closest to her. Mothers and others can turn to this authoritative reference for answers, reassurance and practical guidance.

For example, what types of genetic screening and prenatal testing may be right for you … how may you respond to potentially serious issues such as depression, early labor and gestational diabetes … should you consider natural methods of childbirth?

Also, what chemicals or devices in your home could pose a risk to your unborn baby … should you choose breast-feeding or bottle-feeding … should you bank cord blood?

Mayo Clinic Guide to a Healthy Pregnancy answers many more questions covering every stage of pregnancy, childbirth and taking your baby home. This guide is a trustworthy, comprehensive and fully up-to-date resource for parents to be.
