Review Text

A genuinely helpful, balanced guide to the health-and-beauty worries of pregnancy and after. Prepared by two former fashion magazine editors, it covers Skin, Hair, Fashion, and Sex, before and after childbirth, in sufficient detail to serve as a main source of information; the sections on Diet/Nutrition and Exercise require supplementation from other sources. Although the book incorrectly identifies "stringent weight gain restriction" as the cause of toxemia, most of the information is accurate, and the emphasis is apt. When practical realities are more important than personal habits (no nail polish in the delivery room), reasons are given. Ways to pamper yourself are included, but not all require a big budget (bring your own cheerful sheets to the hospital). And despite the cover-story style ("5 ways to make your sex life rosier"), much advice will be appreciated (what to do if you have one minute, five minutes, ten minutes, etc.). A commendable collaboration. (Kirkus Reviews)show more
