Healthy Beginnings, 3rd Edition


"Healthy Beginnings guided me through every step of my pregnancy, the delivery and the first few days at home with Gabrielle. It's written in very realistic terms and provided positive reinforcement every step of the way. The authors tackle the issues without being alarmist; they cover every procedure and present all the options in easy-to-understand charts and graphs. I found it to be really helpful and recommend it highly."

"The Healthy Beginnings handbook is a very thorough guide for new moms. The layout and inclusion of journal spaces for questions and records of doctor visits was quite useful. I found the information in this publication straight-forward and very reassuring. It made me feel more in control, therefore making my pregnancy and birthing experience a wonderful one. All first-time mothers should read this book."
