It’s a cover-to-cover revision of America’s bestselling guide to getting pregnant, with updated information about genetic screening, ovulation tracking, fertility treatments, and risks like Zika.
What to Expect Before You’re Expecting has everything that eager-to-be moms and dads need to know about getting pregnant, from getting their bodies ready to make a healthy baby to getting that healthy baby on board faster. You'll find baby-friendly foods to order up (say yes to yams); fertility-busters to avoid (see you later, saturated fat); how to pinpoint ovulation, time baby-making sex, keep on-demand sex sexy, and separate conception fact—it takes the average couple up to 12 months to make a baby—from myth—position matters.
With the latest on health insurance coverage, preconception travel and the Zika virus, sex selection techniques, antidepressants, and information on family-building options for single women and same-sex couples. Plus, for the 1 in 8 couples who experience infertility, the latest on both low-tech and cutting-edge fertility treatments, from medications to IVF and surrogacy. It’s everything you need to know for that baby-making adventure.

About the Author
Heidi Murkoff conceived the idea for What to Expect When You're Expecting during her first pregnancy, when she found that most books didn't answer her questions and only added to her worries. A whole series of What to Expect titles followed, aimed at helping and reassuring parents. Now dubbed 'the pregnancy bible', the iconic What to Expect When You're Expecting is currently in its fourth edition.
