Elizabeth Somer, the Complete Guide to Eating Before, During, and After Your Pregnancy. There is no shortage of books on how pregnant women should conduct their lives, especially when it comes to eating. But here experienced nutritionist and author Somer (her works include Nutrition for Women and Food and Mood) has capsulized basic nutritional information in an easy-to-use, helpful guide. Some advice is a little unrealistic, such as suggesting that women consume no caffeine at all during pregnancy. Generally, though, this resource offers both basic tips on good health and more advanced nutritional recommendations. Also included are recipes that fit most active lifestyles. A nice addition to a librarys pregnancy shelf. Mary Frances Wilkens Synopsis An authoritative new resource from the author of Nutrition for Women, this text includes the most current information linking maternal nutrition to infant behavior, birth defects, and other topics of concern, such as the physiological and emotional changes that occur during pregnancy. Tables, charts & worksheets. Synopsis Provides the most current information linking maternal nutrition to infant behavior and health while addressing such areas as teen pregnancies, after-forty pregnancies, and AIDS.
