From the Publisher
You Dream of Having a Baby. You just never dreamed conceiving would be so difficult. Or you never expected to have a high-risk pregnancy. Here is a sensitive guide to the medical and emotional landscape of these conditions, written by a nurse and medical writer who battled infertility and difficult pregnancies herself, and emerged with three healthy children.
The first part of the book focuses on infertility: causes and symptoms, female and male fertility tests, the latest reproductive technologies and alternative methods of conception such as surrogate parenting. The second section covers all aspects of high-risk pregnancy, including dealing with prolonged bed rest and the use of medications to prevent preterm labor. A special chapter addresses birth defects and sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). The book includes vital new information on amniocentesis; miscarriage; premature birth; and delivery options, including vacuum-assisted delivery, cesareans and vaginal birth after cesarean.
Woven with illuminating personal stories, Getting Pregnant and Staying Pregnant will give you the thoughtful, practical advice you need to help make your dream of parenthood come true.
