Overview

YOU: Having a Baby: The Owner's Manual to a Happy and Healthy Pregnancy by Michael F. Roizen, Mehmet Oz

America's favorite doctors Michael Roizen and Mehmet Oz cover pregnancy from conception to birth.

Few life experiences feature emotional swings as extreme as those of pregnancy—it’s a monumental mix of both intense excitement and skip-a-beat anxiety. How do you respond to such a situation? If you’re like most, you scour websites, read books, browse blogs, and pick the brains of every friend, family member, and store clerk who’s ever had a baby. You talk about the ups and downs, the cravings and the nausea, the maternity clothes and the stretch marks. During this 280-day journey, this sometimes scattered mind-set is perfectly natural—and healthy. But often you need help cutting through the clutter. In YOU: Having a Baby, Dr. Mehmet Oz and Dr. Michael Roizen, America’s Doctors, will help ease your tension by teaching you not only about what you can do but also why you should do it. They’ll explore the biology of your body with amazing insights about a cutting-edge new field called epigenetics, which gives you the power to change the genetic destiny of your child. And they’ll give you all the ins and outs of nutrition, exercise, hormones, fetal development, and many more pregnancy-related issues. Using their signature wit and wisdom, they’ll test your knowledge, bust many myths, and reassure you that your maternal instincts are usually pretty darn good. After all, the doctors want the exact same thing as you do during this journey—a healthy baby (and a healthy mom). Be assured that YOU: Having a Baby will be one of your favorite passengers on this wonderful ride.

I kept seeing this book in stores and I would skim through it. I seen it was available on nook so i decided to get it. The pictures and half of the pages aren't showing up on my nook. It was a big wast of money I can't even read it.

I picked this book because a review said it would not scare a pregnant woman (things that can go wrong) like other books. Not true! This book scared me the most. It even says if you lay on your back, the baby will suffocate due to lack of oxygen. Then how can you give birth in a hospital bed?

This book tells you exactly what you need to know. I was concerned about cramps, and this was the first book that I read that said it was normal. What a relief! I will love this book forever for the peace of mind that it gave me.

This book has been fun to read. Dr. Oz gives cute illustrations to help you visualize the sometimes mundane technical explanations and overall is well written and informative.
