Like most women, Laurie Rich expected her pregnancy to be perfect. Instead, she had ten major, painful and debilitating complications that kept her bedridden for seven months, ending with a five-week hospital stay and her premature delivery by cesarean section. During this time, Laurie searched in vain for a book that would tell her what was happening to her and why. That is why she decided to write the book she wished she had read while she was pregnant. The result is this invaluable guide, packed with comprehensive information and reassurance for the many women who, like Laurie, develop such conditions as:
Hypertension, preeclampsia and eclampsia.
Intrauterine growth retardation syndrome.
Placenta previa, placental abruption and other causes of bleeding during pregnancy.
There is also a wealth of advice on coping with such problems as multiple pregnancy and cesarean delivery and a special chapter for fathers--who are too often neglected when complications arise. Filled with both help and hope, this information-packed book is essential reading for all expectant mothers.About the Author:
