Great Resource for Expectant Mom 35+/Book Giveaway



Recently, I read the updated third edition of Your Pregnancy™ After 35 by Glade B. Curtis, MD, MPH and Judith Schuler, MS. I don’t read many books about pregnancy after 35 written by doctors because most of the books are filled with decade old statistics guaranteed to scare any expectant mom over 35 and to discourage any woman over 25 from thinking about wanting to have a baby.


However, from almost the first sentence in Your Pregnancy™ After 35, the authors struck a balance presenting realistic information combined with positivity for older moms. I knew the book was a great resource for expectant moms in their late 30s and 40s when I read: “Today, many healthcare professionals gauge pregnancy risk by a pregnant woman’s health status, not her age.” As a woman who gave birth for the first time at age 42 to a healthy baby and again at age 44 to another healthy baby, I almost screamed with delight that the importance of health was being recognized over age by a traditional healthcare provider.
I appreciate the relevant and timely topics the authors covered.  A few of the topics include:
·         First Time or Repeat Pregnancy


·         Tests for you and your baby


 ·         Tips on job-stress relief and how to deal with fatigue


 ·         Balancing pregnancy with career and/or child-care responsibilities


·         Exercise, nutrition, and weight management


 ·         Delivering and breastfeeding more than one baby


The updated third edition of Your Pregnancy™ After 35 proves its claim of being the “medically grounded, informative, reassuring guide” expectant moms or prospective moms “need to have a healthy, happy pregnancy.”


Because I was so impressed after reading this book, I contacted their Marketing Director to see how I could give away one (1) copy of the updated third edition of Your Pregnancy™ After 35 to one of my InSeason Mom readers/followers. The Director agreed to the giveaway to an InSeason Mom reader/follower located in the U.S.
