Description
For its fourth edition, the best-selling pregnancy book of all time has been given a completely fresh and contemporary feel. With her finger on the pregnancy pulse, Heidi Murkoff has revamped the entire book, revisiting and updating each aspect, plus adding all new, asked for sections. The book now has a week-by-week pregnancy development section in each of the monthly chapters. There's also more lifestyle information, addressing women's concerns with workplace issues, skin and hair products (is it safe to add hair color), diet (how much weight gain is the right weight gain? And why is the answer always changing?) and fashion. There's new full chapter on pre-conception and one on carrying multiples. There's greatly expanded chapter for the father-to-be. And all information on pregnancy complications has been move to the end of the book, so that you only need refer to it if necessary. Two generations of moms-to-be have relied on "What to Expect" turning to its frank, friendly voice to clear answers to their questions about prenatal health.
