Book Description

April 7 2009
Healthy Beginnings is the ultimate step-by-step guide to pregnancy and childbirth. It is a uniquely Canadian resource developed by the Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada (SOGC), the national body that sets Canadian clinical practice guidelines for obstetrics and gynaecology in Canada. From preconception to early postnatal care, Healthy Beginnings is an indispensable resource for mothers, mothers-to-be and caregivers. This handbook is an accessible guide with up-to-date, expert information that helps readers better understand how a body prepares for birth, and what a growing baby needs.  This knowledge has been shown to make a big difference in how well a pregnancy progresses and how healthy a newborn will be.

Healthy Beginnings is an excellent tool for expecting parents. It prepares them for the long, natural process that covers pregnancy, labour, birthing, maternity and breastfeeding. This must-have book is chock full of advice and sound information, so much so that it virtually turns into a user's guide to pregnancy, comforting new parents and raising their confidence level!

President, AOGQ

If you are thinking about having a baby, have just learned that you are pregnant, or have been enjoying pregnancy so far and just want to learn more, this is the book for you. Healthy Beginnings is a uniquely Canadian handbook that helps guide you along the "path" to a healthy pregnancy so that you can give your baby "the best start from preconception to birth."

The authors are accomplished physicians in the area of obstetrics and gynaecology in Canada. They have drawn generously from their own experience and from the clinical practice guidelines established by the Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada. This handbook guides you through the various steps of pregnancy-before conception, during pregnancy, through childbirth, and the first moments that you assume your new role as parents to a newborn child.

Knowing how your body prepares for birth and what your growing baby needs has been shown to make a big difference in how well your pregnancy progresses and how healthy your newborn will be. This is an invaluable reference tool, a must for the mother-to-be.
