The myths of pregnancy and childbirth are all dispelled in Nancy Murphy's easy-to-read and factual account Preparing for Pregnancy, Birth and Motherhood, which is a 'must read' for any woman planning to have a baby. Much emphasis is placed on health prior to conception and how this can influence the developing baby whilst antenatal and later on throughout the child's life. However, Preparing for Pregnancy, Birth and Motherhood provides a detailed account of the entire nine-month process, providing an accessible and invaluable guide about pregnancy and birth to both parents. The hallmark of Nancy Murphy's book is the level of detail, which is informative without being overly scientific, or indeed, overwhelming. Preparing for Pregnancy, Birth and Motherhood will prove to be an invaluable companion for all prospective parents and a parenting reference book in the coming months and years ahead.
