What to Expect When You’re Expecting 5th Edition Pdf Book Description:

This fifth edition of What to Expect When You’re Expecting continues an amazing legacy of bringing expectant moms (and their partners) the most accurate, up-to-date information available, as well as sound, practical medical advice. And it does it with a wonderful mix of compassion and practicality. I have recommended the book for years and for good reason it’s comprehensive and packed with the kind of information you would expect to hear from your favorite doctor or healthcare provider. That is, one who’s wise but with a good sense of humor, thorough but practical, experienced but enthusiastic, organized but empathetic. All the key issues most expectant parents will likely face are covered in just the right amount of detail. The diet and nutrition, exercise, and mental health recommendations are incredibly helpful, and the discussions of labor and birth live up to the high standards I’ve come to expect from Heidi. Exciting and new for this edition is that the advice specifically for dads-to-be is carefully woven into each chapter, underscoring the fact that dads are an integral, important part of pregnancy. In short, the book is literally packed with the latest in medical, genetic and obstetrical advances all presented in a clear, interesting and comprehensible fashion. As a high-risk obstetrician who has delivered thousands of babies, often to mothers with very complicated medical and obstetrical conditions, I know that a well-informed patient is the cornerstone to a successful outcome.

This book could not be better at providing that much-needed information. It is no accident that What to Expect has become the standard by which other pregnancy books are judged. Put your feet up and enjoy the read. Best wishes for a wonder-filled pregnancy. Maybe you know the story (I tell it a lot) of how What to Expect When You’re Expecting was born. Or, really, how it was conceived, because that’s exactly how it happened. I conceived a baby, and then I conceived a book. And let’s just say, I didn’t expect either. So, first, the baby. It was an “oops” pregnancy as in, Erik and I got married and just 3 months later, oops .I was pregnant. Pregnant and completely clueless. Clueless about how I’d gotten pregnant (beyond the basic biology—I had that down, but I was pretty sure I wouldn’t be able to conceive) and clueless about what to do now that I was. I searched in books (the only way we could back in the days before search engines) for answers to my questions, reassurance from my worries, a hand to hold, a shoulder to cry on, a voice to talk me down and cheer me on through the exciting but bewildering pregnancy journey Erik and I were headed on. I read and I read, but I couldn’t find what both of us desperately needed to know: what to expect when you’re expecting. So, I wrote a book—delivering the proposal for What to Expect When You’re Expecting just two hours before I went into labor with the baby who inspired it all, Emma.
