This essential reference offers a comprehensive guide to every aspect of having a baby, from conception through pregnancy and birth then on through the baby's all-important first year.
Part one, Pregnancy, is a detailed coverage of what to expect from fertilization to the birth, with a month-by-month photographic approach showing what's happening to the mother's body as well as the embryo's. Issues such as choices in pre-natal testing, diet, exercise, and general health are addressed, along with what to expect at doctor's visits through the pregnancy, birthing alternatives and preparing for the baby. Part two, Babycare is a comprehensive guide to everything new parents need to know about coping with a new baby: feeding, changing, bathing, simple medical advice and learning to understand his or her needs. Part three, The First Year, is a month-by-month guide to how your baby develops, charting physical and mental progression, advising on common problems, and how to gently encourage as the baby's senses develop.
