Publisher's Summary

Whether your pregnancy was meticulously planned, medically coaxed, or happened by surprise, one thing is certain - your life will never be the same.

If you are pregnant, or planning a pregnancy, then this book will be an asset to your journey. In practical wording and presentation, it covers essential topics such as antenatal screening, foetal development, and high-risk pregnancy.

The first stage of pregnancy can be challenging. You may not have informed others yet, but are still having to cope with symptoms, such as tiredness and nausea, with no outward signs of pregnancy.

  • Chapter one can help you prepare for the "whys and wherefores" of symptoms, along with some tips to help you cope.
  • If you are confused about the tests you will require, through pregnancy, look no further. Pregnancy: The Ultimate Guide to Pregnancy and Birth has a thorough guide to the relevant blood tests and antenatal scans.
  • Nutrition in pregnancy is vitally important for mother and baby. The myth about "eating for two" is simply not true. It is advised that only an extra 350 to 500 calories are needed in your second and third trimesters. Without the correct balance of vitamins, minerals, nutrients, and calories, you are putting both you and your baby at risk. Excess calories, in the way of fats and sugar, can cause gestational diabetes and birth complications. This guide will help you understand the dietary requirements of pregnancy and covers foods that should be avoided.
  • Exercising may not always be at the forefront of your mind, when pregnant; especially in the initial stages, if suffering morning sickness; or the late stages when just standing can be a chore! Along with diet, exercise can help maintain a healthy weight throughout pregnancy.

This book is huge.

Definitely covers more than any other week to week guide, like preconception and postpartum. Plus it's the only natural guide available - contains so much valuable health info. Love it.

An excellent content guidebook from the Author.

This is a great book for it teaches you on how to continue being motivated. Getting started is easy but it is the journey that can be daunting. This good book focuses on the journey and how to reinforce your motivation every step of the way. I would recommend this to anyone who is starting out and wanting to learn the basics.

The book is very informative for first-time parents. I and my husband were all at sea as to how to go about things since I discovered that I was expecting but this book has given us good bearing and information about how we should approach the coming months. We think all expecting parents should own a copy!

Very helpful book.

Very helpful book. I am not a mother yet but it is something I think I can use for the future should I choose to be one. I know that nothing comes with instructions but this can help me out a lot. Has some nice tips within it that I think both first-time parents and parents who've had many children can learn. All in all, very helpful and nice insight.

This is absolutely the perfect gift for a newly pregnant friend or family member! I remember being terrified by the clinical feeling of all the things that could go wrong thanks to books like "What to Expect When Expecting" - but this book keeps it easy going and helps to ease that constant feeling of worry! It's fun
