What to believe when you're expecting: a new look at old wives' tales in pregnancy

Book Cover
Average Rating
Rowman & Littlefield,
Pub. Date:
Pregnant women encounter advice from many directions about how to have a healthy pregnancy - not only from health care providers, but from relatives, friends, and the Internet. Some of these pieces of advice (on topics that range from inducing labor to telling the baby's gender to improving breastfeeding) have been handed down from woman to woman for generations, and don't appear in any medical textbooks. Dr. Jonathan Schaffir explores the origins of these old wives' tales, and examines the medical evidence that proves which ones may be useful and which ones are just entertaining. On topics ranging from getting pregnant to the best way to recover from childbirth, the book settles the questions of what a woman should believe when she hears such advice.
