Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

BellaOnline.com
“Detailed and the only book the older pregnant mom needs…A wonderful, comprehensive guide that covers any concern a pregnant woman over 35 could have. A definite must-read!”

InfoDad.com, 4/11/13
“Comprehensive, clear, plainspoken and informative…The basics here are worthwhile even for women who have had children before…Written for women but also invaluable for men who want to understand what their partners are going through in pregnancy and how they can help lessen some of the physical and emotional impacts, Your Pregnancy After 35 is an outstanding resource.”
