9780020790310: Now That You're Pregnant

"One symptom of pregnancy is that one does not remember all the important things pregnancy, childbirth, and the post-partum period require. Now That You're Pregnant is the answer to all of us who might otherwise be overwhelmed by the new demands a pregnancy requires. Having all the vital reminders and information in one book is a wonderful way to manage and organize this exciting period in one's life." —Elisabeth Bing, FACCE, Co-founder of ASPO/Lamaze "Month by month, everything you need to ask or think about during your pregnancy. It's all here in one very organized place!" —Susan Strecker, Editor in Chief, Baby Talk magazine So you're pregnant! Congratulations! This is a wonderful and exciting time in your life, but one that requires that you make many decisions and keep track of an unbelievable amount of information. Now That You're Pregnant will serve as a valuable reminder of what has to be done and an all-in-one-place record of what you've already decided and what you still have to do. Now That You're Pregnant covers everything, including things like:

  • choosing an obstetrician and pediatrician
  • deciding where to have the baby (hospital, birthing center, or home?)
  • finding a safe exercise program
  • assembling the layette
and has plenty of space for writing things down, whether it be all the items you've borrowed from family and friends or whom you need to send birth announcements to. Don't be scrambling for information you "put somewhere" or be faced with decisions you should have made months ago—let Now That You're Pregnant be your constant companion.

About the Author:

Louise Edeiken and Johanna Antar are mothers and professional organizers offering a wide range of services, with a special interest in catering to mothers-to-be. Louise lives in New Rochelle, New York, and Johanna lives in New York City.

From Publishers Weekly:

Edeiken and Antar, both former mothers-to-be, got acquainted at a monthly meeting of the National Association of Professional Organizers. Each had calmed her ``obsessive-compulsive inclinations'' during pregnancy by means of exhaustive research. Their book is meant to calm others with similar inclinations. This fruit of their joint labor is actually a complex workbook for each stage of pregnancy: some pages consist of blanks for reader entries on child care agencies or birth attendant visits in the hospital. (And sometimes the rubric for jottings is as general as ``Notes, Thoughts, Etc.'') Helpful data offered by the authors include a bibliography of baby books, a list of support sources and countless questions one might want to ask of health professionals. But Edeiken and Antar are apparently opposed to the concept of the annotated bibliography, and this limits the usefulness of their immense effort. Too often, they simply list crucial questions without instructing us further--for instance, under ``Decide If You Will Use Cloth or Disposable Diapers,'' they indicate that we should consider ``Which is healthier for the baby (i.e., rashes, disease)?'' Well, which is it? One's need to buy the book depends on whether reading lengthy lists of questions like these calms--or incites--fears.
