The only authoritative guide specifically for pregnant working women, this book addresses all the subjects one expects to find in a comprehensive book on pregnancy plus issues of special concern to wage-earning women. Is my workplace safe for my developing baby? When should I tell my employer that I am expecting? What laws protect me if I must take medical leave? Answers to all these and more.

The author covers everything from early pregnancy to labor and delivery to the postpartum period. What I like most are the practical tips for how to arrange your life, not after you go back to work, but before. The author, a woman OB/Gyn, and working mom, even discusses sex!
The index is helpful. The text is clear and easy to read. I loved the comments by real patients. Everything is explained intelligently but with common sense, and not in a scary way. I list this book, with four others, in my OB packet. It's a little expensive, but worth it. I love it.

Her facts are accurate and reflect the latest "state-of-the-art" medical and technical knowledge.
She addresses issues about the human emotional element that are sometimes forgotten in books of this nature.
I highly recommend this book to all women of child-bearing age.
By the way, I had to tell my boss and co-workers early because of morning sickness... and they are all estatic and very understanding. My boss is a male - but was very professional about the whole thing. I'm glad I told them.

This book is similar to many other pregnancy books but it interjects a little "how to" for working women. The majority of the book is not focused on working women. Read morePublished 22 months ago by nikki
