Editorial Reviews

Review

"Linda Geddes is not afraid to ask anyone about anything! From the stream of contradictory advice to pregnant women and new parents to those little moments of wonder, Geddes digs into all of them, looking for the evidence and exploring the science. In this book she shares what she's found, with the straightforward answers and easy-going humour that is so welcome in early parenthood. Don't get pregnant without it!" Tracey Brown, Sense About Science "[Geddes] combines scientific research with a light and humorous tone to answer burning questions" The Bookseller "Finally! A book on pregnancy, birth and babies that cuts through the myths, side-steps preachy prescriptions, and turns to the evidence. Bumpology transforms common parental anxieties into fuel for a fascinating journey through the science of the bump." Hannah Devlin, Science Editor of The Times "What a BRILLIANT book! The antidote to anecdote, a great survey of current evidence. Just what the midwife ordered!" Professor Alice Roberts "This book answers all the common pregnancy, birth and newborn questions... Thought-provoking and never boring, I loved it." Mother and Baby

Finally a book that disseminates the actual research. SO refreshing to read after the reams and reams of mummy hearsay on pregnancy sites. I would highly recommend this book, especially if like many, the fear of god has been instilled in you by Google.

It's a book packed with tons of solid science, yet very entertaining to read. Aiming to answer one question at a time, each section is short enough to attract attention from a pregnant brain.
Highly recommended to first time mothers.

Yet user friendly, plain English language. Topped with personal experience from the author. Apt for data lovers, subject to revision as soon as technical data is replaced by new findings.
