"A smart, approachable guide packed with practical advice for parents who want a science-backed, individualized approach to pregnancy." --Linda Avey, Co-founder of 23andMe 2020 National Parenting Award Winner Feeling overwhelmed? Confused by conflicting advice? Bumpin' will radically transform your pregnancy journey to one of confidence and optimism. With over a decade of experience advising women's healthcare and technology companies, Leslie Schrock distills cutting-edge research into your most comprehensive pregnancy guide--from conception through the newborn months. Based on the latest clinical evidence and practical advice from top experts, Bumpin' enables you to make the best decisions for your unique family. With a look at the science, it tackles every pregnancy FAQ and topics like the truth about cleaning up your cosmetics, nutrition, epidurals, and activity; and the practical, like putting together a baby budget and navigating work. Bumpin' also takes you all the way through the postpartum period because taking your baby home and recovering brings unexpected physical, mental, and life changes that are too often overlooked for you and your partner. Inside Bumpin' you'll find:
-A trimester-by-trimester overview from trimester zero (conception) through the postpartum period and return to work
-The truth about age and fertility and how to manage any issues that arise
-Research on topics like vaccinations, breastfeeding, and exercise
-The science behind your physical changes, leaks, sweats, and every other unexpected pregnancy symptom - and how to manage them to enhance your long term health
-Birth preferences and preparing for unpredictable changes
-The challenges of navigating parental leave and returning to work
-Unique advice for partners
-Budgeting, finance tips, baby registry, and hospital checklists Every pregnancy is unique and often unpredictable. For Leslie, this meant handling curveballs like miscarriage and later a birth that didn't go according to plan. She turned her personal journey into this book, written while she was pregnant, with the help of a wide network of experts she consulted along the way, including doulas, ob-gyns, midwives, therapists, prenatal trainers, and nutritionists. Warm, funny, and non-judgemental, Bumpin' will leave you feeling prepared and ready to tackle anything that comes your way. A portion of proceeds will be donated to Every Mother Counts and National Birth Equity Collaborative to support maternal and child health.
