Overview

An ambitious, thoroughly researched, and personable look at preconception health issues for all levels of interest. Before Your Pregnancy is unique because it is a dynamic video and book combination! The VIDEO is lively and information-packed; both the future mom and dad should watch it for a comprehensive, quick study on preconceptual health. The format is primarily question & answer featuring real people, stimulating graphics, and cooking and exercise demonstrations. The prospective mother usually appreciates the accompanying BOOK that offers more detailed information and a multitude of practical applications and personal experiences outlining how others have found success in preparing themselves for pregnancy.
The 41-minute educational video and 34-page booklet is being described as an essential new nutrition and exercise guide designed for couples BEFORE they become pregnant. Special tips for the father-to-be are included as well. (Note: Yes, this is very handy to refer to during pregnancy and postpartum).

Evidently, there's more to getting pregnant than this reviewer thought. Now you must prepare at least one month before you spend that romantic evening with your husband by eating properly, exercising, and avoiding harmful substances like alcohol and tobacco (skip the champagne and chocolate that night). This set of tape and workbook is full of good information on getting in shape for pregnancy and is surprisingly interesting to watch, considering that nutritional advice is not always visually exciting. Lots of great tips about maintaining a good weight, getting motivated to exercise regularly, and even improving the potential father-to-be's fertility make this package useful to women looking to increase the odds of conception and a healthy pregnancy. One quibble: the oversized box and booklet are going to make this hard to stick on a library video shelf without some major cutting and pasting.--Ellen Druda, Half Hollow Hills Community Lib., Dix Hills, NY Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
