Between the time that a woman first decides to start a family and the day her menstrual cycle resumes following the birth of her child, the hormonal changes she experiences are more dramatic than at any other time in her life; yet no book has ever focused on these hormonal changes, how they affect not only the mom, but her baby's brain development as well. Now, in his new, groundbreaking book, PERFECT HORMONE BALANCE FOR PREGNANCY, hormone expert and OB/GYN Dr. Robert Greene releases the results of years of research, and provides his plan for having the healthiest pregnancy -- and baby -- by maintaining excellent hormone health. In three comprehensive sections, Dr. Greene describes his new vision of pregnancy by exploring the intimate connection between a woman's hormones and how they impact every aspect of her pregnancy, her ability to conceive, fatigue and morning sickness, libido, weight gain, blood pressure, possible complications, preterm delivery, and beyond. In Part II, Dr. Greene presents "The Perfect Balance Pregnancy Program," a plan that includes diet, exercise, nutrition, and lifestyle recommendations, with the focus on achieving hormone balance during each phase of pregnancy. Part III is devoted to troubleshooting and applies Dr. Greene's cutting-edge research on hormones to less common problems, such as sexual dysfunction, miscarriage, mood disorders, sleep troubles, and the impact of pregnancy on appearance. Throughout, Dr. Greene arms his readers with the tools they need before, during, and after pregnancy to stay healthy and feel great.
