Few life experiences feature the extreme emotional swings as pregnancy does -- it's a monumental mix of both intense excitement and skip-a-beat anxiety. If you're like most, you scour web sites, read books, browse blogs, and pick the brains of every friend, family member, and store clerk who's ever had a baby. You talk about the ups and downs, the cravings and the nausea, the maternity clothes and the stretch marks. During this 280-or-so day journey, this sometimes-scattered mindset is perfectly natural -- and healthy. But sometimes you need help cutting through the clutter.
Acting as mythbusters for the hundreds of questions surrounding pregnancy with the same scientific, informative, and entertaining ways that have made them America's Doctors, Dr. Mehmet Oz and Dr. Michael Roizen will help ease your tension by teaching you not only about what you can do, but also why you should do it. They'll explore the biology of your body with amazing insights about a cutting-edge new field called epigenetics, which gives you the power to change the genetic destiny of your child. And they'll give you all the ins and outs of nutrition, exercise, hormones, fetal development, and many more pregnancy-related issues. There's even a section for dads.
Using their signature wit and wisdom, they'll test your knowledge, give you oodles of tools you can use, and reassure you that your maternal instincts are usually pretty darn good. After all, the doctors want the exact same thing as you do during this journey -- a healthy baby (and a healthy mom).
