Review quote

Take A Deep Breath will keep parents from hyperventilating! It is the perfect handbook of breathing written by an impeccable surgeon who is, first and foremost, a mom. If this book were required for every new parent, it would save pediatricians a lot of time and parents a lot of heartache. -- Cara Natterson "Author of 'Worry Proof: A Pediatrician (and Mom) Explains Which Foods, Medicines, and Chemicals to Avoid to Have Safe and Healthy Children'"show more
