“More readable, more attractive, and more accessible” is how pregnant couples describe the contemporary edition of this million plus-copy seller! And, of course, it’s got the entire contemporary medical information and advice. The new edition is designed to expand the retail market for this authoritative and complete guide.
Pregnancy, Childbirth, and the Newborn: The Complete Guide is already one of the most bestselling pregnancy books in the marketplace, with multiple million copies in print! Now newly revised and redesigned, this comprehensive, authoritative “bible” provides expectant couples with abundant, valuable information about pregnancy, labor, birth, the postpartum period, and newborn care.
This award-winning book presents the contemporary research-based information on pregnancy, birth, and early parenthood, including:
• New information on complementary-medicine approaches such as acupuncture
• Up to date information on interventions all over childbirth
• Revised statistics and discussions on cesarean birth and vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC)
• New advice on informed decision-making, one of the most up to date topics in maternity care today
• Plus much, a lot more!
The book has been redesigned so it’s more accessible and reader-friendly, with more photos, illustrations, and boxed features that allow for important information to be highlighted. Also included in the new design are fun and informative sidebars, such as “Common Q&As” about pregnancy, childbirth, and newborn care; “In Their Own Words,” in which parents describe their pregnancy, childbirth, and early parenting experiences from their point of view; and “Fact or Fiction?” in which the authors present common misinformation and the facts. New to this edition is an accompanying website, www.PCNGuide.com, where readers can find additional maternity care information in addition to helpful forms and worksheets.
