Synopsis: This ground-breaking book is bursting with up-to-date medical information that will guide prospective parents through pregnancy, childbirth and the first 6 weeks of their baby's life. Every aspect of pregnancy and birth is covered in depth: conception; antenatal care; the three trimesters and what to expect in each one; diet and exercise; preparing for the birth; birth and pain relief; following the birth and the first six weeks. This book is unique in its clarity of information, the structure of the content and the latest research given. Dr Penelope Law writes about high-profile issues such as home births, obesity and diabetes, 35+ mothers and pre- and post-natal depression. Her tone is approachable and honest. She tells parents what they are entitled to ask for during their antenatal care, labour and birth, and repeatedly encourages women to take control and choose the care they are offered. The last section of the book is an A-Z of Complications, making this the ultimate guide to pregnancy. One Born Every Minute is a Bafta award-winning Channel 4 reality TV series documenting the day-by-day experiences of pregnant mothers and their families in the labour ward of a major teaching hospital. The 4th series of the show is currently on air, regularly attracting viewing figures of almost 3 million. The 5th series is already commissioned for broadcast on C4 in January 2014. The UK series is shown on two channels in Australia and franchise series have been sold to France, the US and Germany so far.
