Fully updated to include all the latest Canadian medical guidelines and practices, the new edition of the Canadian bestseller I'm Pregnant! is a complete visual reference to pregnancy and birth.
Combining remarkable images and refreshing jargon-free text in an easy-to-read format, this fully illustrated reference details the physical and emotion changes that occur to the mother and makes it easy to follow Baby’s development week by week.
Designed to give pregnant women the confidence to make their own informed choices about pregnancy I'm Pregnant! provides clear and detailed information about every stage of Baby’s development and the remarkable adaptations the mother’s body will undergo throughout each week of this most extraordinary journey.
Author Dr. Lesley Regan says “When I was expecting my twins, I remembered feeling both astonished and intimidated by books that seem to suggest that there are right and wrong approaches to pregnancy and childbirth”.
Authoritative yet accessible, this comprehensive book also features self-help and coping strategies for the common complaints during pregnancy that do not require medical intervention, such as sleepless nights, aches and pains, and nausea.
Revised to include important new information on medications, prenatal care, screening, and diagnostic tests, maternity rights and benefits as well as an updated resource section, I'm Pregnant! is an indispensible companion to pregnancy and essential reading for every prospective Canadian parent.
