About this title


Most parenting books deal with either pregnancy or infant care. But in this comprehensive sourcebook, expectant and new parents can get both--beginning with the dramatic changes that occur after the first trimester. Lanie Carter guides the reader step-by-step through the maze of first-time parenthood.

From Library Journal:

What these two titles have in common are a focus on the prenatal period of preparation, a warm, personal tone, nonsexist language, the use of humor to present information, and recognition of the husband's role in preparing for the baby. Both are subject to the same flaw: the explanations are sometimes oversimplified to the degree that they are not useful. Each work has qualities that distinguish it. From Here to Maternity is written from the perspective of a health care provider. Marshall is a registered nurse, and her book explores fully the issues and options in the area of prenatal planning. Its purpose is to enhance the expectant couple's ability to communicate knowledgeably with their health care team; the advice on being a wise consumer is helpful. Covering such topics as adjusting to the impact of pregnancy on emotions, sexuality, fitness, medication, and making decisions about the process of delivery, this title presents a great deal of information at a reasonable price. Appealing illustrations, useful charts and sidebars, a detailed index, and a bibliography of citations from the medical literature enhance its value. Recommended. In contrast, The Miracle Year is written from the perspective of a parenting educator, self-described as a "grandmother" who envisioned the book as a substitute for the advice that an extended family might have been able to provide. It presents a brief survey of what to expect, decisions to make, and ways to cope with difficulties in the six months before and after birth. Of interest is advice on budgeting and obtaining supplies for the baby. However, the author does not cover the possible complications that can arise from pregnancy and delivery. Index not seen. Costly for the amount of information conveyed.
