Editorial Reviews

Review

“Do Chocolate Lovers have Sweeter Babies is utterly fascinating … and a great read.”
—Christiane Northrup, M.D., ob/gyn physician and author of the New York Times bestsellers: Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom and The Wisdom of Menopause

“Having delivered many babies in Africa and raised one of my own, I was thrilled to find plenty of old-fashioned common sense suffusing Pincott’s survey of cutting-edge research. Casual, but never careless, her light style is a fine complement to her balanced, informed scholarship. Covering everything from martinis to Mozart, Pincott’s book is full of useful thinking that will inform and comfort expectant mothers (and fathers) everywhere.”
—Cacilda Jethá, M.D., co-author (with Christopher Ryan) of Sex at Dawn: The Prehistoric Origins of Modern Sexuality

"In Do Chocolate Lovers Have Sweeter Babies?, Jena Pincott takes us on a fascinating tour through the science of pregnancy. She answers questions, shares stories, and passes on insights gleaned from her exhaustive research. Reading it is like having a friend—an extraordinarily wise, funny, and well-informed friend—walk you through the nine months before birth. Pincott tells you everything you wanted to know about pregnancy but were afraid to ask."
—Annie Murphy Paul, author of Origins: How the Nine Months Before Birth Shape the Rest of Our Lives

"Delightful! This book is destined to become everywoman's --and man's --secret guide to pregnancy. A must read."
—Louann Brizendine, M.D. neuropsychiatrist author of The Female Brain and The Male Brain

From the Author

cience writer Jena Pincott spent her pregnancy and postpartum months asking the questions that doctors don't answer, and finding answers that expectant mothers will not expect. In this curiosity-led exploration into the "hidden side" of pregnancy, learn how amniotic fluid carries flavors and genes can play favorites, semen can be a fetus's friend or foe, the brain shrinks then grows, and what mind-control chemicals are doing in breast milk, sweat, and tears.  

Drawing on studies in evolutionary psychology, biology, social science, neuroscience, reproductive genetics, endocrinology, and epigenetics, the influence of environment on the behavior of genes, Pincott explores questions such as:


*Why are your dreams more vivid?
*Why do skinny chicks have more daughters? 
*Is the fetus tinkering with your brain? 
*What does the baby's birth season predict about her personality? 
*What do fetuses learn when they eavesdrop? 
*Do boys really give you basketball bumps? 
*Do fidgety fetuses become feisty babies? 
*Where does maternal instinct come from? 
*Does your stress sharpen your baby's mind -- or dull it? 
*Can men breastfeed? 
*Do mommies have better brains? 
*How could Grandma's diet affect your child?

And could eating chocolate really make your baby sweeter?
