When Daphne Adler, a mother and mathematician, was pregnant, a colleague scolded her for sprinkling parmesan cheese on her pasta. After dutifully dumping her dinner in the trash, she determined to investigate to find out whether the admonishment and similar warnings were based on fact. What she discovered surprised her—and will surprise you, too. After 3 years of research where she poured over thousands of studies, Adler has reframed the parameters of what must and shouldn’t be allowable all the way through pregnancy. Her refreshing and reassuring book in any case provides us with a way to separate myth from reality. Fact or fallacy? Debunking the Bump sets the record straight with eye-opening revelations such as: • 44% of obstetricians never mention the most important avoidable cause of birth defects. • Less than half of all pregnant women are counseled about the most dangerous activity they could undertake whilst pregnant. • In the long list of forbidden foods, one category is 10,000 times more risky than others…but its danger is not emphasized. • Many pregnant women cut down their consumption of the single substance that’s the most a good idea to their developing baby. Debunking the Bump is a pregnancy book for women with a thirst for facts. It covers not only the entire hot pregnancy topics (Is it fit to be eaten sushi and drink coffee?) but also various additional subjects Adler’s exhaustive research uncovered that aren’t even mentioned in most pregnancy books. Filled with practical, actionable recommendations and clear explanations of risks and trade-offs, this unique guide will help you make informed choices so you’ll enjoy a relaxed and happy pregnancy.
