Back in the good ol' days, mothers-to-be visited their obstetricians once a month and gave birth under heavy sedation, while dads paced nervously in the waiting room. If you choose to be more active in the birth experience, Pea in a Pod is your perfect playbook.

After presenting an overview of birthing options and caregiver choices, Pea in a Pod offers a detailed description of conception and fetal development, along with the physical and emotional changes to expect during pregnancy. It also provides nutritional guidelines, exercise plans, information on prenatal tests and procedures, and a wealth of hints for the expectant father and labor partner. Labor variations are

discussed along with common interventions and medications. Final chapters focus on infant care, detailing such topics as breastfeeding and childhood immunizations. The birth of a baby is a significant event in a parent's lifetime. Pea in a Pod will help make your journey from pregnancy to parenthood both memorable and rewarding.
