Announcing Eating Well When You're Expecting, providing moms-to-be with a realistic approach to navigating healthily and deliciously through the nine months of pregnancy—at home, in the office, over the holidays, in restaurants. Thorough chapters are devoted to nutrition, weight gain, food safety, the postpartum diet, and how to eat when trying to conceive again. And, very exciting, the book comes with 150 contemporary, tasty, and healthy recipes that feed mom and baby well, take little time to prepare, and are gentle on queasy tummies.

A departure from its predecessor, What to Eat When You’re Expecting, which has 976,000 copies in print, Eating Well loses the whole-wheatier-than-thou attitude, and comes with a light, reader-friendly tone while delivering the most up-to-date information. At the heart of the book are hundreds of pressing questions every mother-to-be has: Is it true I shouldn’t eat any food cooked with alcohol? Will the caffeine in coffee cross into my baby’s bloodstream? Help!—I’m entering my second trimester, and I’m losing weight, not gaining. Is all sushi off limits? How do I get enough calcium if I’m lactose intolerant? I keep dreaming about a hot fudge sundae—can I indulge? Guess what: the answer is yes.

Whether you’re vegan or a red-meat eater, a carb craver or a gluten-free girl, a confirmed fast-food junkie or slow-food foodie.

Plus, how to put it all together with dozens of practical tips and 175 recipes that are as delicious as they are nutritious, as easy to love as they are easy to make.

At the heart of the book are hundreds of pressing questions that every reader has: Do I have to skip my morning latte—or my afternoon energy drinks? I’m too sick to look at a salad, never mind eat one—do I have to? Help! I’m entering my second trimester, and I’m losing weight, not gaining. How do I get enough calcium if I’m lactose intolerant?

Written with Heidi Murkoff’s trademark warmth, empathy, reassurance, and humor, it is the must-have guide for a new generation of moms-to-be.

What you need to know to have the best birth experience for you.

Drawing upon her thirty-plus years of experience, Ina May Gaskin, the nation’s leading midwife, shares the benefits and joys of natural childbirth by showing women how to trust in the ancient wisdom of their bodies for a healthy and fulfilling birthing experience. Based on the female-centered Midwifery Model of Care, Ina May’s Guide to Natural Childbirth gives expectant mothers comprehensive information on everything from the all-important mind-body connection to how to give birth without technological intervention.

Filled with inspiring birth stories and practical advice, this invaluable resource includes:• Reducing the pain of labor without drugs--and the miraculous roles touch and massage play

• What really happens during labor
• Orgasmic birth--making birth pleasurable
• Episiotomy--is it really necessary?
• Common methods of inducing labor--and which to avoid at all costs
• Tips for maximizing your chances of an unmedicated labor and birth
• How to avoid postpartum bleeding--and depression
• The risks of anesthesia and cesareans--what your doctor
doesn’t necessarily tell you
• The best ways to work with doctors and/or birth care providers
• How to create a safe, comfortable environment for
birth in any setting, including a hospital
• And much more

Ina May’s Guide to Natural Childbirth takes the fear out of childbirth by restoring women’s faith in their own natural power to give birth with more ease, less pain, and less medical intervention.
The essential sequel to What to Expect the First Year, with 11 million copies in print, What to Expect the Second Year picks up the action at baby’s first birthday, and takes parents through what can only be called “the wonder year”—12 jam-packed (and jam-smeared) months of memorable milestones (from first steps to first words, first scribbles to first friends), lightning-speed learning, endless explorations driven by insatiable curiosity. Not to mention a year of challenges, both for toddlers and the parents who love them, but don’t always love their behaviors (picky eating, negativity, separation anxiety, bedtime battles, biting, and tantrums).

Comprehensive, reassuring, empathetic, realistic, and practical, What to Expect the Second Year is filled with solutions, strategies, and plenty of parental pep talks. It helps parents decode the fascinating, complicated, sometimes maddening, always adorable little person last year’s baby has become.

From the first birthday to the second, this must-have book covers everything parents need to know in an easy-to-access, topic-by-topic format, with chapters on growth, feeding, sleeping, behaviors of every conceivable kind, discipline (including teaching right from wrong), and keeping a toddler healthy and safe as he or she takes on the world. There’s a developmental time line of the second year plus special “milestone” boxes throughout that help parents keep track of their toddler’s development. Thinking of traveling with tot in tow? There’s a chapter for that, too.
Every woman wants to eat her best. But eating well can be challenging during the best of times. During pregnancy it is aggravated with curveballs such as nausea, cravings, or life. Before you ruin your healthful intentions, check out The Well-Rounded Pregnancy Cookbook, which offers a compromise by providing 100 recipes that meet every mother’s needs by adapting them to her moods.

Feeling nauseous? Turn Pine Nuts and Golden Raisins into a lemony-soup. Craving comfort foods? Modify Asian Cabbage Salad into a traditional but healthy treat. Ready to shed your baby pounds? Transform Fettucine with Mushrooms and Slow-Roasted Tomatoes into a beautiful salad. Feeling good today? Try some Broiled Salmon with Caramelized Fennel and Sweet Onion paired with Crisp Roasted Sweet Potatoes. And the Lemon Cookies and Devilicious Cupcakes are great for any mood.

Easily customizable recipes also mean that mom-to-be and her family can sit down and enjoy the same meal, no matter how she’s feeling. With helpful tips and options that minimize prep time, The Well-Rounded Pregnancy Cookbook is a must-have for any expectant, new or not-so-new mother, who needs a flexible solution for preparing delicious, healthful, meals!

As the founder of Mothers & Menus, Inc. and a busy mom of three, Karen Gurwitz knows how hard it can be to find time to take care of yourself. In The Well-Rounded Pregnancy Cookbook, she encourages you to tune in to your body’s needs and give yourself permission to honor your cravings. Her voice and the cookbook are a great accompaniment to your journey of motherhood, whether you are in the early stages, or have been on it for quite some time.


From the Trade Paperback edition.
Some things about babies, happily, will never change. They still arrive warm, cuddly, soft, and smelling impossibly sweet. But how moms and dads care for their brand-new bundles of baby joy has changed—and now, so has the new-baby bible.

Announcing the completely revised third edition of What to Expect the First Year. With over 10.5 million copies in print, First Year is the world’s best-selling, best-loved guide to the instructions that babies don’t come with, but should. And now, it’s better than ever. Every parent’s must-have/go-to is completely updated.

Keeping the trademark month-by-month format that allows parents to take the potentially overwhelming first year one step at a time, First Year is easier-to-read, faster-to-flip-through, and new-family-friendlier than ever—packed with even more practical tips, realistic advice, and relatable, accessible information than before. Illustrations are new, too.

Among the changes: Baby care fundamentals—crib and sleep safety, feeding, vitamin supplements—are revised to reflect the most recent guidelines. Breastfeeding gets more coverage, too, from getting started to keeping it going. Hot-button topics and trends are tackled: attachment parenting, sleep training, early potty learning (elimination communication), baby-led weaning, and green parenting (from cloth diapers to non-toxic furniture). An all-new chapter on buying for baby helps parents navigate through today’s dizzying gamut of baby products, nursery items, and gear. Also new: tips on preparing homemade baby food, the latest recommendations on starting solids, research on the impact of screen time (TVs, tablets, apps, computers), and “For Parents” boxes that focus on mom’s and dad’s needs. Throughout, topics are organized more intuitively than ever, for the best user experience possible.
