What to Expect When You’re Expecting was conceived during Heidi Murkoff’s first pregnancy, when she discovered that most books only added to her questions and worries. She delivered the proposal for What to Expect just hours before delivering her daughter, Emma.
Heidi cofounded the What to Expect Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping low-income families expect healthy pregnancies. She is a senior contributing editor and columnist for Baby Talk and Parenting magazines and is a frequent guest on talk shows. She has an interactive website for expectant mothers at www.whattoexpect.com.
With 18.5 million copies in print, What to Expect When You’re Expecting is read by 93% of women who read a pregnancy book and was named one of the “Most Influential Books of the Last 25 Years” by USA Today.
Announcing the completely revised third edition of What to Expect the First Year. With over 10.5 million copies in print, First Year is the world’s best-selling, best-loved guide to the instructions that babies don’t come with, but should. And now, it’s better than ever. Every parent’s must-have/go-to is completely updated.
From the first birthday to the second, this must-have book covers everything parents need to know in an easy-to-access, topic-by-topic format, with chapters on growth, feeding, sleeping, behaviors of every conceivable kind, discipline (including teaching right from wrong), and keeping a toddler healthy and safe as he or she takes on the world.
The indispensable companion is all new and provides a realistic approach to navigating healthily and deliciously through the nine months of pregnancy—at home, in the office, in restaurants. Thorough chapters are devoted to nutrition, weight gain, food safety, the postpartum diet, and how to eat when trying to conceive again.
For the 11 million couples who are trying to conceive, it’s the prequel: Which baby-friendly foods to order up and which fertility-busters to avoid; lifestyle adjustments that you’ll want to make. How to pinpoint ovulation, time lovemaking, keep on-demand sex sexy, and separate conception fact from myth (position matters: myth!).
This new Spanish-language edition of What to Expect When You’re Expecting is a livelier, altogether more user-friendly version. The use of a less formal verb tense in the title signals a fresh spirit much more suited to the Hispanic-American audience.
What to Expect the First Year, the new baby bible with over 10.5 million copies in print, is now available in Spanish! It is the long-awaited follow-up to Que´ Puedes Esperar Cuando Esta´s Esperando, the Spanish-language edition of What to Expect When You’re Expecting.
