Announcing a new, cover-to-cover revision of America’s pregnancy bible. What to Expect When You’re Expecting can be a perennial New York Times bestseller and something of USA Today’s 25 most influential books of the past 25 years or so. It’s read by in excess of 90% of women that are pregnant who read a pregnancy book–essentially the most iconic, must-have book for parents-to-be, with more than 14.5 million copies in publications.
Now comes the Fourth Edition, a whole new book for a different generation of expectant moms–featuring a fresh look, a new perspective, along with a friendlier-than-ever voice. It’s stuffed with the most up-to-date information reflecting not just what’s new while carrying a child, but what’s relevant to women that are pregnant. Heidi Murkoff has rewritten every portion of the book, answering a large number of new questions and including an awful lot of new asked-for material, like a detailed week-by-week fetal development section in all of the monthly chapters, an expanded chapter on pre-conception, and the latest one on carrying multiples. More comprehensive, reassuring, and empathetic than previously, the Fourth Edition incorporates essentially the most recent developments in obstetrics and addresses by far the most current lifestyle trends (from tattooing and belly piercing to Botox and aromatherapy). There’s greater than ever on pregnancy matters practical (including an expanded section on workplace concerns), physical (with additional symptoms, more solutions), emotional (more guidance on riding the atmosphere roller coaster), nutritional (from low-carb to vegan, from junk food–dependent to caffeine-addicted), and sexual (what’s hot and what’s not in pregnant lovemaking), together with much more support for your very important partner in parenting, the dad-to-be.
Overflowing with tips, suggestions, and humor (a pregnant woman’s best companion), this new edition is a lot more accessible and much easier to use than ever before before. It’s everything parents-to-be have arrived at expect from What to Expect… only better.
