Review:

Having a baby remains one of the great wonders of nature. But sometimes nature needs a helping hand and this publication is a complete companion for parents as they make the intrepid journey through pregnancy.

It features everything you would need and might want to know about the miracle of new life; from planning a family in the first place (if that was the intention) to conceiving, giving birth and receiving the correct antenatal care.

Beautiful photographs and diagrams take you through the pregnancy calendar, giving details on the baby’s physical growth, the changes to your body and the antenatal care needed at each stage.

Stoppard promotes the involvement of fathers in the process, recognising the important part they play. She also gives useful advice for the birth partner, whether the women’s partner, relative or friend.

First published in 1985, this classic has been fully revised and updated here to become an outstanding guide to pregnancy by the authoritative and well-known Dr Miriam Stoppard.

The glossy photographs and excellent illustrations make even the most complex issues easy to digest and understand.

Just about everything to do with any stage of pregnancy is covered in sufficient detail, including pain relief during labour, suggested positions for delivery and natural childbirth.

And it does not shy away from controversial matters: for example it tells you about the effects of drugs on your baby.

There is also a common complaints chapter and a sample birth plan, plus a rights and benefits section in the appendix, which gives details of when benefits can be claimed and offers advice on the information you will need to give to your employer.

Everything is well set out. All the information is in a logical order and easy to access. This book is highly recommended for parents-to-be. --Carole Butterworth
