You'll find clear explanations of
--what foods to avoid and why
--the role of vitamins and minerals and how to choose the right supplements
--how what you eat affects your labor and delivery
--dietary guidelines for pregnant women over thirty-five, as well as for pregnant teens
--how diet helps prevent common problems, from morning sickness and food cravings to heartburn and muscle cramps
--which foods and nutrients speed your recovery after the baby is born
