Book Description

1 Mar 2011 Everything You Need to Know

Both visual and practical, showing you the essential information that other books only tell you

Some new parents feel daunted by huge pregnancy and babycare tomes. Pregnancy & Birth: Everything You Need to Know delivers just the right amount of information in crystal-clear detail. Each title gets straight to the point, showing parents exactly what they need to do, from what to avoid eating during pregnancy to how to cut a baby's nails.

The book includes stunning photographic overviews of Your Developing Body and Your Growing Baby. Plus, Your New Baby takes parents through the first six weeks of life with a newborn, with step-by-step sequences on feeding, bathing, changing nappies, and a visual guide to the medical check-ups.

Simple, practical and highly visual, no parent-to-be should be without Pregnancy & Birth: Everything You Need to Know.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything you need to know 2 Oct 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is brilliant. I bought it when I was roughly 14weeks pregnant and wish I owned it earlier. It all seems completely up-to-date and was very reassuring during my pregnancy. it's full of practical advice and is really nicely laid out and very accessible. I think it covers everything you need to know and the sections on labour and pain relief are detailed and informative, but not too scary! There's information abut what to expect at scans and check-ups too which was nice to know beforehand. It was great for advice on what to eat too and generally how best to look after you & baby during pregnancy & beyond.

The book doesn't just cover medical and practical bits but also emoitional things, for example about post-natal depression or birth anxiety. Overall it was very useful & I would recommend it to any expectant mother.

This is an excellent pregnancy and birth guide for the new parents-to-be; it covers everything you need to know, using good quality, clear photos. It is written in a user friendly 'dip in 'format, making it perfect to pick up at any time. The options for childbirth are written concisely giving good information in order to make an informed choice for the best birth possible. It is one of the best pregnancy books I have seen in a long time,
