Publisher's Summary

Tech investor and new mom Leslie Schrock offers a thoroughly modern guide to pregnancy - from the preparations of “trimester zero” to the challenges of the newborn months.

In the last 30 years, the process of starting a family has drastically changed. Not only are there many more options for getting pregnant, but there are a dizzying array of variables from start to finish. Genetic test or no genetic test? Midwife or OB-GYN? Stroller or Baby Bjorn? 

Yet all this choice can also create anxiety, especially around the most difficult realities. Miscarriages and fertility issues are common, yet often concealed. One in nine mothers report dealing with postpartum depression, but it is rarely acknowledged and even more rarely treated. Celebrities post “snap-back” photos of their slim post-baby bodies, creating unrealistic expectations for women everywhere. We have more information than ever, yet nearly every aspect of motherhood is still shrouded in judgment and mystery. 

Enter Leslie Schrock, first-time mother whose own struggles opened her eyes to this widespread problem. With the frank, funny warmth of a trusted friend, she delves into everything from in vitro fertilization and prenatal testing to lactation consultants and postpartum birth control. She debunks the most pervasive pregnancy myths, explores the complementary practices, and cites the latest science (with a dash of been-there-done-that experience) to help you make the best decisions every step of the way - for both you and your baby. 

So tune out all of the noise you don’t need, and take control of your pregnancy - present or future.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

This type of book isn’t the best as audio

I think this book might be better delivered in paper, instead of being an audiobook. That way you can just flip through the pages and stop on the topics that are most relevant to you. It would also be a lot easier to access the checklists, they could be very helpful reminders if you could see them. The only way it’s gonna be helpful for me is if I transcribe from the audiobook. I can’t remember a list of 25 things just from listening to it.

I didn’t have any “ah ha” moments listening to this. But there were a number of times when I thought, “ oh I forgot to check insurance for…” or “ I should check my family history for…”
It’s good stuff you want to think about ahead of time, it’s just very dry.

Mostly good

This had some good info and touched on a number of topics that I realized I needed to look into more. What really irritated me though is that the narrator in the sample is not the person who narrates 90% of the book.

Informative

Good info. We'll delivered. A bit of a negative view and also to be honest a bit boring. But given the other books I have read I would say this one is above average for the category.

“Modern” not in my opinion

This book for me is just regurgitation of the long list of donts while pregnant with the explanation that “research on pregnant women is ethical” it just wasn’t that helpful. And I feel that the PPD section was too brief and not detailed at all. I wouldn’t recommend this one.

Everything for before, during, and after pregnancy

amazing pregnancy book! wonderfully informative but not overwhelming perfect balance of statistics, professional review, and personal story. the only downfall was it ended too soon. at the end of the book, I wanted more, not for lack of information but because it was so good.
