Synopsis: A respected obstetrician/gynecologist analyzes the psychological effect of each stage of pregnancy on the mother, father, and the rest of the family and shows how to prepare them for prenatal care and the arrival of the new baby.
From Booklist: Active planning for a pregnancy enhances the physical and interpersonal readiness of mother, father, and other family members for the demands of conception, gestation, childbirth, and the first days together with the new child. This warm, practical guide explores making the decision to have a baby, interviewing and choosing a helping practitioner, selecting place and method for delivery, the emotional and physical timing of conception, medical history, and occupational hazards during the first trimester. Bovo considers each of these aspects in depth, bearing in mind the impact each has upon all family members. Obstetrician Bovo provides month-by-month guidance to physical and emotional changes, prenatal visits, what the mother should be doing, the baby's development, complications, when to call the doctor, and questions that may arise. The final chapters address labor and delivery, going home, and special pregnancies. Appendixes note resources for mothers, fathers, siblings, and special-needs children as well as organizational sources of information. Complementing all the data, some generally not available elsewhere, are appealing photographs. Kathryn Carpenter
