Advice from a Pregnant Obstetrician: An Insider's Guide
At long last, a guide to pregnancy that offers a view from both sides of the stirrups: Advice from a Pregnant Obstetrician combines expert medical advice with woman-to-woman reassurances, from an author whose credentials are impeccable. Dr. Shari E. Brasner writes as a double insider: as a respected obstetrician who has spent years delivering babies at Manhattan's prestigious Mount Sinai Hospital, and as the recent mother of twins. Her book is opinionated, sympathetic, and steeped in expert knowledge. As only an obstetrician can do, she walks the reader through prenatal visits as seen through doctors' eyes, providing the answers to the questions her patients are always anxious to ask, offering concise medical explanations and opinions for every test and decision made during pregnancy. As only a woman who has been pregnant herself can do, she provides empathy, hands-on experience, and the ultimate insider's perspective the whole way through. Advice from a Pregnant Obstetrician is the only medical and emotional resource pregnant and soon-to-be pregnant women will need -- and the one they will seek out at bookstores.
