The Pregnancy Power Workbook: The 200 most important questions to ask about your pregnancyWhen you’re pregnant, you may not know where to start your learning journey or what questions to ask. That’s the idea behind The Pregnancy Power Workbook – a unique method that helps you find the information you want and turn it into knowledge. It changes the way you learn about your pregnancy. It provides an unprecedented system that goes step by step through the maze of prenatal care. Rather than inundating you with facts, figures, statistics, and details, it presents basic questions and answers that speak directly to the most common concerns about pregnancy.

Whether you are planning a pregnancy, or you are already pregnant, The Pregnancy Power Workbook’s distinctive format will boost your understanding of the miracle of pregnancy. It will give you the tools you need to become your own personally empowered pregnancy expert.

• How to ask the right questions at the right time and enjoy easy to understand answers.
• How to prepare for your prenatal visits, maximize your comprehension and expertise.

The simple answers help you translate the vast amounts of information into useable, practical know-how. The Pregnancy Power Workbook is also packed with additional features, including a personal pregnancy timeline, pregnancy and lab flow sheets, and an ultrasound awareness sheet – these help you stay on top of your prenatal care, keeping you informed and up to date, no surprises!
