PEA IN A POD - Third Edition
Your Complete Guide to Pregnancy, Childbirth & Beyond
Linda Goldberg

If you want to be a participant, not a spectator, in the birth of your baby, PEA IN A POD is your playbook.
The labour and birth options available to modern parents-to-be are numerous, and PEA IN A POD covers them all. Taking you from your first day of pregnancy through your child's first year, it presents everything from relaxation exercises to practice during pregnancy, to birth positions and breathing techniques—a treasure-trove of information designed to make your labor and delivery easier. This comprehensive guide offers a month-by-month breakdown of the physical changes to expect during pregnancy; describes the emotional aspects of pregnancy; and discusses the dos and don'ts of sex during and after pregnancy. It also provides a nutrition plan for the pregnant woman; exercise plans for the mother-to-be, new mother, and cesarean mother; and a wealth of hints for the father-to-be, labour partner, and new father. In addition, the basics of infant care and an in-depth discussion of breastfeeding are included. The third edition of this book reflects the most up-to-date information on nutrition, prenatal testing, labour and delivery options, infant care, and more. Over 200 photographs and illustrations summarize and highlight the text, while witty cartoons offer humorous insights into parenthood and serve as welcome proof that you're not alone in your fears and frustrations.
Whether you're having your first child or your fourth, PEA IN A POD is an invaluable guide to keep at your elbow until your little one blows out that first birthday candle. A step-by-step handbook, a ready reference, and a source of practical advice, it is a book you'll turn to time and time again.
