Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Despite the glut of pregnancy books, moms-to-be often can’t find answers to questions like, “Can I eat peanuts?” Geddes, a science journalist with two young kids, was one of them. So in this fascinating guide, she set about sharing little-known tidbits about everything from when fingerprints start developing (between the third and fourth month) to whether newborns sweat (full-term ones typically can from day one). She wisely devotes most of her chapters to topics not included in many other books, though she also tackles many common concerns, such as, “How much alcohol is safe to drink during pregnancy?” Not everything is black and white, including the answer to that one. Geddes is not a medical doctor, but she adds credibility to her book by citing many physicians and studies. One MD, for example, sensibly advises pregnant women to avoid falling-off and getting-hit activities such as horseback riding or skiing after the first trimester, when the bigger baby is no longer protected by pelvic bones. Geddes could write a specialty Trivial Pursuit game with these facts. --Karen Springen


"What a BRILLIANT book! The antidote to anecdote, a great survey of current evidence. Just what the midwife ordered!" Professor Alice Roberts "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 "[Bumpology] answers the questions that tantalise every mother" Daily Mail "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 --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
