Description
From award-winning science journalist Linda Geddes, a fascinating and practical companion for expectant parents that makes sense of conflicting advice about pregnancy, birth, and raising babies.
Can I eat peanuts during pregnancy?
Do unborn babies dream?
Can men get pregnancy symptoms too?
How much do babies remember?
How can I get my baby to sleep through the night?
The moment she discovers she's pregnant, every woman suddenly has a million questions about the life that's developing inside her. Linda Geddes was no different, except that as a journalist writing for New Scientist magazine she had access to the most up-to-date scientific research. What began as a personal quest to find the truth behind headlines and information that didn t patronize or confuse is now a brilliant new book. In Bumpology, Geddes discusses the latest research on every topic that expectant parents encounter, from first pregnancy symptoms to pregnancy diet, the right birth plan, and a baby's first year.
