The Complete Guide to Later Pregnancy, Motherhood & Fertility.
This book is a complete guide for the woman who’s lived a full life before giving birth. Right Time Baby is an intelligent, entertaining book aimed at inspiring the biggest transition of any woman’s life.
A lively and informative guide, Right Time Baby dispels many of the outdated myths concerning older motherhood and gives useful advice for increased fertility and a healthy baby. Conceived as media-friendly and easy to digest, it hits the Zeitgeist and empowers later mums rather than adding to their anxiety.
The past ten years has seen the conception rate for European women over thirty-five soar. This trend is international and increasing as we get healthier. The subject is rarely out of the news with many celebrities having children later. Women today postpone childbearing due to higher education, pursuing careers and enjoying their independence. They also spend longer looking for the right partner.
The quirky, personable narrative is the book’s main voice but various inserts reveal facts, quotes, practical tips and useful information. The chapters are bite size on everything you need to know about conception, pregnancy, childbirth and the baby’s first year. It is a book to dip into covering all the medical concerns but also incorporating holistic opinions and more up-to-date integrated approaches. The book includes pregnancy yoga, parenting trends and the latest research in neuroscience, nutrition and psychology. It also covers:
