Pregnancy: The Beginner’s Guide
Being pregnant is uncharted territory for first-time moms. For those who are looking for solid information and reassurance, Pregnancy: The Beginner’s Guide is intended for women (and their partners) who are facing pregnancy for the first time. This month-by-month guide presents an abundance of information that will aid you in having a healthy pregnancy, including sections about mom, baby’s development, and special points of interest for the father. The format is cute and colorful, making this book a joy to page through, and illustrations, pictures, and fun facts are included throughout. Some topics touched on include nutrition, exercise, pain relief options, newborn essentials, and cesarean sections. This is very much a “mainstream” pregnancy book, however, and some of the wording and topics included (or not included) reflect a leaning towards today’s typical hospital birth. This is not a complete pregnancy book, and would be complemented nicely by additional reading and a good childbirth education class, but it does cover a good many topics in a friendly way that will appeal to women who aren’t sure where to start.
