Happy Baby, Healthy Mom Pregnancy Journal
In his Perfect Hormone Balance for Pregnancy program, Dr. Robert A. Greene describes how hormones impact every aspect of a woman's pregnancy (from morning sickness to weight gain), and prescribes a diet, exercise, nutrition, and lifestyle plan to help women achieve hormonal balance through each stage of pregnancy. The HAPPY BABY, HEALTHY MOM PREGNANCY JOURNAL presents these principals as an accessible week-to-week guide, complete with prompts for writing about the pregnancy as a means of relieving stress and expressing excitement over the big event.Organized by trimester, the journal gives an overview of the hormonal activity and common pregnancy symptoms associated with each month, and provides weekly tips for alleviating these symptoms through gentle, non-medical means. The journal also provides weekly updates on the development of the baby, a prompt for recording weight gain, and an exercise/stretching chart.Central to the journal are a series of questionnaires that assess different aspects of a woman's physical and emotional well-being throughout the pregnancy, such as morning sickness, mood, sleep, and nutrition. At the appropriate week, the journal provides a prompt for taking a questionnaire and noting the results, so that the writer stays in touch with her symptoms and is prepared with questions to ask her doctor. The journal also includes specific pages for taking notes during prenatal visits, recording test results, and creating a birth plan.
