Product Information

The first book to combine comprehensive information with accessible attitude. Having a baby is life-changing. It's intense, inspiring, exhausting, outrageous, amazing, transformative - and that's just the way you feel when you find out you're pregnant. FROM THE HIPS is what every new mother is looking for from a pregnancy book: a reliable resource crammed with the most accurate and up-to-date information about having a baby told in a friendly, positive, supportive, and encouraging tone.

The authors, both young mothers themselves, talked to hundreds of women from diverse backgrounds with diverse beliefs and experiences. The result is a comprehensive look at all the myriad choices, complications, physical and emotional changes, and expectations women face when becoming mothers.

Packed with information as well as quotes and stories from women sharing their unique experiences, FROM THE HIPS covers:

  • Part One: Pregnancy --everything you need to know, from how to make early decisions like choosing a healthcare provider to the realities of the pregnant body; the emotional aspects of pregnancy; and pregnant life, like working through pregnancy
  • Part Two: Birth--birth basics, what to expect, how to come to grips with what you can and can't control, and postbirth protocol
  • Part Three: Becoming a Parent--the post-baby body (healing and body image); the post-baby brain (how to handle the new stresses and challenges); post-baby life (including sex, finding balance, asking for help, resolving conflict

I hated this book - From The Hips

By Not the book for me

from Seattle

Comments about From the Hips:

I purchased this book right when I found out I was pregnant. From the looks of it, I thought it would be fun and interesting. All it did was freak me out, and felt like all it told me was what NOT to do. What I was really looking for was something that explained what my body was going through and the different stages of pregnancy. If that is what you're looking for it's not this book.
