Meet today's woman. She is capable, opinionated, informed. On any given day, you might find her graduating from university or running a major company. But there's a good chance that at some point in her life this same amazing woman will be terrified by a cup of coffee, baffled by a tuna sandwich and exhausted from sleeping in contorted positions. Pregnancy - unquestionably one of the most profound, meaningful experiences of adulthood - reduces otherwise intelligent, successful women to patients who are treated like they themselves are babies. This book is a much-needed clarion call, to educate and inspire women everywhere to make informed and confident choices, for their babies and themselves.
