What to Expect When You're Expecting


What to Expect When You're Expecting

Completely new and revised fourth edition

Adapted for Australia and New Zealand

By Heidi Murkoff and Sharon Mazel

RRP $44.99




With over 14.5 million copies in print, Australia's pregnancy bible, What to Expect When You're Expecting - now fully revised - is the most iconic, must-have book for parents-to-be.

This new-look fourth edition is the book for a new generation of expectant parents.  Its up-to-date information reflects what's new in pregnancy and what's relevant to today's pregnant women.  Heidi Murkoff has rewritten every section, answering dozens of new questions and including new by-demand material, such as detailed week-by-week foetal development guides in each of the monthly chapters, more on pre-conception, and a section on carrying multiples.

More comprehensive and reassuring than ever, the fourth edition incorporates the most recent developments in obstetrics and addresses current lifestyle trends: from tattooing and belly piercing to Botox and aromatherapy.

There's more than ever on practical matters: an expanded section on workplace concerns; physical - with more symptoms and more solutions; emotional - more advice on riding the mood rollercoaster; nutritional - from low-carb to vegan, from junk food-dependent to caffeine-addicted; and sexual - what's hot and what's not in pregnant lovemaking, as well as much more support for the expectant dad.

Overflowing with tips, helpful hints, and humour - a pregnant woman's best friend, this new edition is easier to use than ever before.


About the Author

Heidi Murkoff conceived the idea for What to Expect When You're Expecting during her first pregnancy, when she found that most books only added to her worries.  A whole bookshelf of What to Expect titles followed, aimed at helping parents.  Heidi writes for Baby Talk and Parenting magazines.



This is a great resource for all expectant parents - not just the first timers.  What to Expect When You're Expecting is jam-packed full of information about everything you could possibly want to know about when it comes to pregnancy, childbirth and the the first few months.

Due to the volume of information contained within, this is not a publication to read cover-to-cover, but rather like a user manual expectant parents can refer to as needed. The week-by-week development guide breaks the subject matter down into easily digestible sections (excuse the pun!) and of course the comprehensive Index allows for quick an easy reference if you're looking for something specific.

Heidi Murkoff's writing style is positive, friendly, easy to follow and informative without too much medical jargon.

If you are the type of person who likes to be informed and prepared for every possible scenario then What to Expect When You're Expecting will become your pregnancy bible too.
