Tech investor and new mom Leslie Schrock offers a thoroughly modern guide to pregnancy—from the preparations of “trimester zero” to the challenges of the newborn months. With the frank, funny warmth of a trusted friend, she delves into everything from in vitro fertilization and prenatal testing to lactation consultants, debunking pregnancy myths and citing the latest science to help you make the best decisions every step of the way—for both you and your baby.
“The information in this book is VERY useful.”
“It’s presented differently than the classic baby books that seemed to teach some outdated information in hard-to-read chapters. This gives you everything you need to know in a more pragmatic way.”
“It is the perfect book for the millennial mom. They even have a “padsicle recipe” for postpartum recovery which I don’t think you’ll find in the other books!”
I loved the postpartum information in general. It touched on subjects like swaddling techniques, eating while parenting (which I forgot to do a lot) and setting “visiting hours” in the hospital (i.e. setting boundaries for visitors and how to protect your newborn from germs).”
“I love this book. I’m giving it to all my pregnant friends.”
