Description:

Many of the psychological, physical; and financial problems newly pregnant women and their partners face can be worked out before pregnancy. In fact, today many obstetricians and researchers in the fields of pregnancy and parenthood are beginning to recognize the fundamental importance of prepregnancy planning. Now, for the first time, here is a guide designed just for that purpose -- a practical, positive, and comprehensive volume to help you deal with all the choices, challenges, and concerns that pregnancy brings.
