If you are thinking about having a baby, have just learned that you are pregnant, or have been enjoying a pregnancy so far and just want to learn more, this is the book for you. Healthy Beginnings is a uniquely Canadian handbook that helps guide you along the path to a healthy pregnancy so that you can give your baby the best start from preconception to birth.

The authors are accomplished physicians in the area of obstetrics and gynaecology in Canada. They have drawn generously from their own experience and from the clinical practice guidelines established by the Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada. This handbook guides you through the various steps of pregnancy - before conception, during pregnancy, through childbirth, and the first moments that you assume your new role as parents to a newborn child.

Knowing how your body prepares for birth and what your growing baby needs has been shown to make a big difference in how well your pregnancy progresses and how healthy your newborn will be. Healthy Beginnings is an invaluable reference tool, a must for the mother-to-be.
