With over 14.5 million copies in print, Australia's pregnancy bible What to Expect When You're Expecting- now fully revised - is the iconic, must-have book for parents-to-be.

This new-look fourth edition is the book for a new generation of expectant parents. Its up-to-date information reflects what's new in pregnancy and what's relevant to today's pregnant women. Heidi Murkoff has rewritten every section, answering dozens of new questions and including new by-demand material, such as detailed week-by-week fetal development guides in each of the monthly chapters, more on pre-conception, and a section on carrying multiples.

More comprehensive and reassuring than ever, the fourth edition incorporates the most recent developments in obstetrics and addresses current lifestyle trends: from tattooing and belly piercing to Botox and aromatherapy.

There's more than ever on practical matters: an expanded section on workplace concerns; physical - with more symptoms and more solutions; emotional - more advice on riding the mood rollercoaster; nutritional - from low-carb to vegan, from junk food-dependent to caffeine-addicted; and sexual - what's hot and what's not in pregnant lovemaking; as well as much more support for the expectant dad.

Overflowing with tips, helpful hints, and humour - a pregnant woman's best friend, this new edition is easier to use than ever before.

                Has all the necessary information for conception, pregnancy, birth and beyond, however the writting style is a little condescending and very cheesy, I had trouble reasing it because of this.

                  Wonderful reference book for pregnant women. Being a Midwife I recommend this book to family and friends. Well written with sensible common sense advice.
                  I would recommend highly it is one book that will prove to be invaluable for the mother to be and her family.

                  Heidi Murkoff

                  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.
