From the cover: “In this groundbreaking work, the authors of the critically-acclaimed Birth and Beyond offer expert guidance on all aspects of mother and baby health; from recognising symptoms and when to call the doctor through to emotional and relationship issues, and from feeding and sleeping through to exercising and resting.

Presented in an easy-to-follow A-Z format, Mother and Baby Health offers step-by-step advice on key adult, baby and family health issues. Here you will find up-to-date first aid advice, immunisation schedules and tips on daily baby care and your own physical and emotional wellbeing, plus coverage of over 200 illnesses and medical conditions. Clear explanations help you to recognise and respond to symptoms, prevent problems and consider the treatment and support that’s right for you. The range of topics includes: antenatal tests; weight concerns; placenta praevia and premature birth; nappy rash; colic and chickenpox; and fathers’ issues too.

Written in a warm and personal tone, Mother and Baby Health’s unique integrated approach considers and explains the medical and the complementary care options for each condition, and gives guidance on self-help. Specialist procedures are outlined where appropriate.

Comprehensive in its scope and easy-to-use, Mother and Baby Health talks to you like a good friend with the wisdom of experienced doctors, midwives, therapists and parents. This brilliant and unrivalled source of advice and information is an essential companion for every parent and parent-to be.”
