Stock Description, May Not Reflect Item


For more than a century, the health care professionals at Mayo Clinic have dedicated themselves to the well-being of the family. And in the life of the family, what more significant event can there be than the birth of a baby?

Beginning with the decision to start a family, this comprehensive book guides parents through each phase of pregnancy, birth, and baby's all-important first year. Every page offers compassionate, clear answers to the many questions and decisions that accompany conceiving, giving birth, and caring for a treasured new life.

Part One0--Pregnancy

Expectant parents learn how to choose a medical caregiver; what prenatal tests are done and why; what you can do about some of the common discomforts of pregnancy; sensible nutrition and safe exercise routines during pregnancy; balancing work and pregnancy; plus an easy-to-understand, trimester-by-trimester breakdown of what to expect as your pregnancy progresses. A special eight-page section features color photographs of how the baby develops during pregnancy.

Part Two--Childbirth

Today's many birthing options are explained in full, and a detailed description of labor and birth helps parents anticipate this powerful experience. A thorough discussion of baby's first hours addresses every parent's question: "Is my baby OK?" Premature birth, cesarean birth, complications, and adoption are discussed, and an important chapter focuses on the new mother's health after childbirth.
