Precise Weekly Information
If your knowledge of biology and the female anatomy is a little sketchy, then you might not have a clue about how a baby develops over the forty weeks of pregnancy. There are informative illustrations of the weekly development that will enthrall and excite you.
This wonderful book has a broad scope, but it is easy to read. Here is a list of some of the topics that are covered in the guide:
- A complete list of all the usual medical examinations and procedures that you might be subjected to all the way through your pregnancy
- Information on how to ensure that your body is getting the best nutrition

- The latest information on elective delivery

Many new parents report that this is one of the most useful pregnancy books and the best of its kind. Of course, it is not realistic to expect a book to be able to cover absolutely every eventuality on the topic of child development, but this book has enough to reassure or alert concerned parents. It is not a book to be read from cover to cover, but rather, a textbook to be dipped into as the need arises.
Members of the medical profession, especially midwives, nurses, etc. say that the information is current and reliable. The updated versions ensure that the most relevant new information is available to parents, and answers questions that they hadn’t yet thought of asking.
Put Your Feet Up, Read and Relax
As described in the title, this pregnancy book is the magical revelation of the miracle that takes place when you are pregnant. Just looking at the illustrations and photos of the weekly changes that are taking place should be enough to ensure that the mom-to-be develops a healthy glow of contentment.
Even when the going gets tough and your pregnancy is not exactly as comfortable as you dreamed it would be. The visuals of your developing baby will help you to understand what is causing some of your discomforts. It may even help you to relax and put you into a more positive frame of mind.
Involve the Whole Family
Fathers rave about this pregnancy book because it allows them to be involved to a much greater degree. It is a super book to share, as well as a way to involve siblings who are curious about your ever-expanding tummy.
You can buy this book for yourself or a pregnant friend. It is an indispensable book for anyone who wants to enjoy childbearing from start to finish. I am sure that you will be forgiven for being a little bit smug about your extensive knowledge about the weekly development of the baby inside you.
