Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In this revised second edition, physician Clapp (former professor emeritus, reproductive biology, Case Western Reserve Univ., obstetrics and gynecology, Univ. of Vermont Coll. of Medicine) and exercise physiologist Cram (Comprehensive Fitness Consulting, LLC) update their leading title on the benefits of exercise during pregnancy. This title is best aimed at professional athletes who are pregnant or pregnant women working in the fitness industry and want to continue exercising throughout their pregnancy. This book is not for anyone beginning an exercise program. The information is scientific in nature and includes charts, graphs, exertion scales, and notes to many scientific studies.
VERDICT Only academic libraries with collections for prenatal workers need acquire, but libraries with the first edition should update.
