Pregnancy and Childbirth: As They Grow

Pregnancy and Childbirth: As They Grow

by Paula Adams Hillard, Dodi Schultz, Gideon G. Panter

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Sound and accessible, this volume collects information and advice originally printed in Parents magazine's ``As They Grow'' column. Hillard and Panter, both obstetricians and gynecologists, begin with a discussion of how a doctor determines whether a woman is pregnant, and go on to cover lifestyle and body changes during pregnancy, common problems, choosing a place and attendant for childbirth, what happens to child and mother during delivery and postpartum concerns. The doctor-authors understandably do not take an anti-medical intervention stance (one chapter is entitled ``The Case for Forceps''), which may alienate proponents of entirely natural childbirth. But most readers will find this a sensible, authoritative guide. January
