Few life experiences feature emotional swings as extreme as those of pregnancy—it’s a monumental mix of both intense excitement and skip-a-beat anxiety. How do you respond to such a situation? If you’re like most, you scour websites, read books, browse blogs, and pick the brains of every friend, family member, and store clerk who’s ever had a baby. You talk about the ups and downs, the cravings and the nausea, the maternity clothes and the stretch marks. During this 280-day journey, this sometimes scattered mind-set is perfectly natural—and healthy. But often you need help cutting through the clutter. In YOU: Having a Baby, Dr. Mehmet Oz and Dr. Michael Roizen, America’s Doctors, will help ease your tension by teaching you not only about what you can do but also why you should do it. They’ll explore the biology of your body with amazing insights about a cutting-edge new field called epigenetics, which gives you the power to change the genetic destiny of your child. And they’ll give you all the ins and outs of nutrition, exercise, hormones, fetal development, and many more pregnancy-related issues. Using their signature wit and wisdom, they’ll test your knowledge, bust many myths, and reassure you that your maternal instincts are usually pretty darn good.
