Authors Glade Curtis and Judith Schuler have good news for thirty- and fortysomething moms: your health may be more important than your age. Your Pregnancy After 35 is a realistic and reassuring guide for couples who have delayed parenthood. The authors, an obstetrician and pregnancy educator, provide straightforward and sensible advice about medical issues, including age and risk in pregnancy, genetic counseling, multiple births, exercise, and weight management. In addition, the milestones and social challenges of pregnancy are clearly addressed, including topics like sharing the news with friends and coworkers and how pregnancy affects marriage and career. Each topic is illustrated with anecdotes from Dr. Curtis's 20 years in practice as an obstetrician/gynecologist. As more couples choose to delay childbearing, Curtis and Schuler's book can provide optimistic and encouraging words about the belated adventure of becoming parents. --Barbara Mackoff --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
