Use the space at the end of each chapter to write out questions for your next appointments.
When it's time for your baby to be born, the experts walk you through each of the four stages of labour and birth and offer advice to help you have the birth experience you want and enjoy your first moments with your newborn. Once you are a new mother, Healthy Beginnings will give you the needed advice for caring for your newborn with information on postpartum care, breastfeeding, and much more.
