About this title


A "survival guide" for parents who are expecting twins. This physician-endorsed book will help expectant parents know exactly what they're up against, including those things they can do and must understand to enhance and promote the best possible outcome to their pregnancies. From making an informed choice of physicians and hospitals, the book will educate parents about nutrition during pregnancy, multiple pregnancy management and birth, preterm labor (recognition, treatment, and prevention), home uterine activity monitoring and self monitoring for contractions, activity modification and bedrest during pregnancy, preventing preterm birth and managing preterm labor. It will help expectant parents understand that their pregnancies are high-risk, and that self education and awareness can help promote a dialogue with their physicians that will help them to become well informed, active "partners" with their physicians rather than just patients. This information can be lifesaving! The book also identifies possible complications of pregnancy which,understanding the insidious signs and symptoms, a parent can often avoid or report early enough to salvage a pregnancy. The book also deals with breastfeeding, bringing babies home, and includes information on infant care and "coping" for parents. An A-Z guide to help parents succeed with their multiple pregnancies!
