Benefit, caution, calm
“I will be a mother” is an honest and calm look at one of the most important periods in a woman’s life. There are many recommendations in it that will help to spend this time intensively: for example, not to give up sports, do yoga, and look after your appearance.
Lots of useful tips on how to deal with toxicosis, strengthen the muscles of the pelvic floor and morally and physically prepare for childbirth.
But the most important thing is that the information was compiled by experts who calmly, without pumping up, give answers to all the questions of concern. Nine months lucid with an assistant book.
The book is divided into trimesters. Each part describes in detail what the future mother is expecting: what can and cannot be done, what products are useful and not so good, how to cope with emotions and choose comfortable clothes.
At the beginning of the book there is a calendar that shows how the baby grows with each week of pregnancy. For example, on the 9th week it looks like an olive, on the 16th week it looks like avocado, and on the 40th week it looks like a small pumpkin.
Expectant mothers should closely monitor nutrition.
The book has a list of products that are best abandoned or used with caution. For example, do not eat pate, raw eggs and liver. Take note!
The book was written by Chiara a Hunt and Marina Foll - they founded a school for expectant mothers in London.
In Russia, the book was checked and assured by the candidate of medical sciences, neonatologist Victoria Alekseeva. She added special tips for Russian readers, because each country has its own characteristics.
Myths: belly shape, gender and classic
One of the most interesting chapters in the book is about the myths about pregnancy. For example, that the sex of the child can be determined by the shape of the mother's belly: if the tummy is low, a boy will be born, if high - a girl.
In fact, there is no evidence that the sex of the unborn child can be predicted by the shape of the abdomen. It is better to trust the ultrasound - so far this is the most accurate prediction.
Another famous statement is about music. They say that if mom listens to classical music, the baby’s intelligence will be higher.
But so far no research has confirmed this hypothesis. Of course, the classic is beautiful. But if the future mom likes the songs AC / DC or Elvis Presley, then this will not harm the baby.
Not all men can overcome the books about pregnancy that their companions read. Therefore, there are several chapters in "I will be a mother" that are written specifically for future dads. In them - all about how to prepare for fatherhood, to support his beloved during emotional outbursts, to help during each trimester.
And of course, how to behave during childbirth: when to go to the hospital, what things to take with you and what to say in order to calm the future mother.
With the birth of the baby, the questions for young mothers become even greater. And "I will be a mother" will answer the very first ones: about feeding, colic, walking and recovering from childbirth.
The main thing is that this book helps not to be afraid - pregnancy, childbirth, and care for the baby. Indeed, with such a guide in the world of motherhood is much calmer and more interesting.
