The New Art And Science Of Pregnancy And Childbirth

"The New Art and Science of Pregnancy and Childbirth is very well written by experienced obstetricians who together have many decades of collective experience in the care of thousands of women through their pregnancies. They are clearly cognisant of all the fears and anxieties that every pregnant woman faces and the answers to these are found in the pages of this book. I'm sure this book will help make this special period in a woman's life even more enjoyable. I would highly recommend this book to all women."Professor Ivy NgChief Executive Officer, KK Women's and Children's HospitalSenior Consultant Paediatrician"The New Art and Science of Pregnancy and Childbirth demystifies the myriad of queries, concerns, worries and myths related to pregnancy from the stage of planning for pregnancy, through the course of pregnancy and delivery into the postnatal period.

The information is expertly presented in a clear and concise manner, from a local perspective, allowing couples to obtain a realistic expectation of how their pregnancy will progress. The book is well organised such that it can either be easily read from cover to cover or by targeting the specific chapters of interest, all of which are well cross-referenced. The breath and depth of coverage of the varied pregnancy-related issues impresses upon me the immense cumulative expertise, which has been gleaned by the authors and their contributors through their years of experience. This book truly does tell you 'What you want to know from your obstetrician'. I have no doubt that couples that are either currently pregnant or planning a pregnancy will find this book extremely useful and interesting."Dr Kenneth Kwek Yung ChiangSenior Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist, KK Women's and Children's HospitalHead, Department of Maternal Fetal Medicine and Peripartum UnitFacility Director, Singapore Cord Blood BankingCo-chair, KKH Research Committee"A clear-eyed, jargon-free book, which makes readers feel like they have several doctors holding them by the hand. Detailed photos and illustrations, as well as technical explanations will satisfy those parents who want to know everything and who are likely to hit 'google' at the slightest sign of trouble. For those more laid back, information such as when to travel and the best exercise when expecting are most useful."Miss Leong ChingAuthor of Best-selling "Chicken Soup for the Singapore Soul"and mother of three
