Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Westheimer, probably the best-known sex therapist in the world, joins forces with Grunebaum, a respected obstetrician-gynecologist, to present a positive, factual, and modern approach to intimacy and childbirth. Their book is a compendium of sound information for couples as they plan for and experience conception, pregnancy, birth, and early parenthood. The doctors explore the physical and emotional developments of each trimester and offer tips on preserving a healthy lifestyle--emotionally and sexually as well as physically--during pregnancy. Dr. Ruth's unique personality is evident, especially in discussions of "good sex" and in the "Ask Dr. Ruth" columns interspersed throughout the narrative. Examples of other issues are designing a birth plan, choosing the right hospital, and dealing with problem pregnancies. Noteworthy because it is written with both parents in mind, this paperback is recommended for individual purchase and consumer health collections.--Linda M.G. Katz, MCP Hahnemann Univ., Philadelphia Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
