This sourcebook for expectant parents combines advice from gynecologists, obstetricians, fetal medicine physicians, midwives, psychologists, dieticians, geneticists, pediatricians, and teachers from North America and the UK. It covers what happens during pregnancy and labor, prenatal care, healthy eating and exercise, managing emotions and intimacy, fatherhood, and childbirth classes and labor choices. Stone and Eddleman (obstetrics, gynecology, and reproductive science, Mount Sinai School of Medicine) then provide chapters on the newborn, taking care of the baby and oneself, and overcoming problems. Reference pages on genetic counseling, pregnancy, complications, emergencies, miscarriage, newborn medical problems, birth abnormalities, and other topics are included. Many color illustrations are incorporated throughout. There is no bibliography.
