Pregnancy and childbirth are not what they used to be. Back in the good ol' days, mothers-to-be visited their obstetricians once a month, did exactly what they were told, and gave birth to their babies while heavily sedated or anesthetized. Their husbands, who most likely had never even once accompanied them to the doctor, paced nervously in the waiting room, barred from the inner sanctum of the labor and delivery rooms. Today, some expectant parents still stand on the sidelines. But more choose to be active players. If you want to be a participant, not a spectator, in the birth of your baby, Pregnancy to Parenthood is your playbook.Whether you're having your first child or your fourth, Pregnancy to Parenthood is an invaluable guide to keep at your elbow until your little one blows out that first birthday candle. A step-by-step handbook, a ready reference, and a source of practical advice, it is a book you'll turn to time and time again.
