A modern guide to pregnancy that distills medical expertise into short but deep doses of actionable advice, covering the entire pregnancy and “fourth trimester,” by two renowned NYC doctors and with the calm, supportive voice of Danielle Claro, coauthor of The New Health Rules.
“The smart, supportive book that’ll help you stop the 3 a.m. Googling. . . . [U]nlike all those hours spent scrolling through mommy forums, this advice comes from a place of compassion and from actual experts.”
“I felt calmer just paging through The New Rules of Pregnancy. . . . The anxiety brought upon by some past pregnancy books is real; sometimes, too much information really is too much. But this sweet little book keeps most pieces of advice to a single page. Nutrition, stretch marks, sleep, birth plans, nursing—it’s all here, but it’s never more than a mom-to-be can handle. The overarching message from authors Dr. Adrienne L. Simone, Dr. Jaqueline Worth and Danielle Claro is to relax as much as you can, be kind to yourself and experience the magic. ‘Our mission was not only to inform, but to bring some of the beauty back to pregnancy,’ the authors write in an afterword. Mission calmly, beautifully accomplished.”
“As caring as the physicians who wrote it, The New Rules of Pregnancy contains all you need to know about the amazing sci-fi adventure that is having a baby. Wise, beautiful, and needed.”
“A mindful, intelligent guide—supportive, concise, and full of actionable advice. This is the pregnancy book I would give to my daughter.”
—Frank Lipman, MD
“A beautiful, comforting, and calming companion to any pregnancy. It’s the only pregnancy book I will ever recommend and (spoiler alert!) what I’ll be giving at every baby shower. This is the perfect How-to-Love-and-Support-Your-Already-Genius-and-Totally-Capable-Body-Through-Pregnancy guide.”
“This modern book on pregnancy brings us back to a place we never should have left—intuitive, noninvasive, common-sense care for mama and baby.”
