Huge pregnancy books with reams of information can be intimidating for many parents-to-be. Pregnancy and Birth: Everything you need to know condenses this information into what parents really need to know. This visual guide shows parents exactly what to expect, for example during tests, scans and procedures, and helps them plan for the birth with key information on topics such as pain relief options, what to pack in the hospital bag, and the best positions for different stages of labor.
The book includes stunning photographic overviews of "your developing body" and "your growing baby". The final section, "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, etc, and a visual guide to the medical check-ups.
