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

This is a well written and interesting book. It is written clearly enough for someone without a strong scientific background. However, as someone in the biological sciences, I still found this stimulating and not talking down to the reader the way many of these books can be.
