The MommyMDGuide to Pregnancy and Birth
Rallie McAllister, MD, MPH and Jennifer Bright Reich
Pregnancy and Birth
The MommyMDGuide to Pregnancy and Birth is such a unique concept and an unbeatable combination of reliable (livable) resource of practical helps and suggestions for coping with all the bodily changes during pregnancy and the life changes of impending motherhood. What group of women better suited to offer such dynamic (and often side-splitting real-life antidotes) than sixty female physicians who reminisce on their own pregnancy and birth experiences?
Co-authors Rallie McAllister, MD, MPH, and Jennifer Bright Reich, have compiled more than 900 tips and suggestions for soon to be moms and dads. Written in a week by pregnant week style, every chapter opens with what’s happening in your baby’s development followed by what’s happening in mom’s body (and what to do to make mom and baby both healthy and comfortable).
Reading a chapter a week is like opening a present every seven days and discovering how much your baby has grown and developed…it provides a fresh dose of wonder and a boost of encouragement through the sometimes-exhausting experience of carrying a little one. Readers will appreciate the honest and candid remarks relating to each chapter’s topic by these physicians as they tell it like it is and then tell readers what they did (or didn’t do) and what they learned with each pregnancy. This resource will give moms and dads lots to think about, discuss, and ponder…and every page is sure to bring a smile and a burgeoning sense of excitement at the miracle of pregnancy and birth.
