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

Format: Hardcover
Linda Geddes started this project when she blogged for New Scientist about her first pregnancy. This developed into a great book for dipping into - she uses current research reports to answer common pregnancy questions and myths, and makes it clear when something is possible but unproven. Everything is broken into chunks of a page or two, so it's a nice read when you have limited time or concentration.

This book speaks about random issues around pregnancy and babyhood.
As a reader you are bombarded by statistics.I am wondering how can a pregnant woman benefit from statistics about schizophrenia for example...on the book she can learn that if her baby is born this or that month and in this or that geographical area her baby has big chances of being schizophrenic...
There is not central idea nor philosophy around this book..there is nothing to learn from it..I'm also surprised by the fact that it finishes on the last phrase with a nice little image while the whole book lacks nice images, feelings etc.
