Your Pregnancy Quick Guide: Twins, Triplets and More

Glade B. Curtis, Author, Judith Schuler, Author Da Capo Press $7.95 (224p) ISBN 978-0-7382-1008-7
Curtis, an obstetrician/gynecologist, and Schuler, who holds an M.S. and has coauthored pregnancy books with Curtis for more than 20 years, admit that being pregnant with two or more babies can affect women in many different ways. Yet there are some common issues, which they address here, covering everything from complications associated with multiple pregnancies to the various emotions women may have post-delivery. Although it is by no means comprehensive, this little guide gives women valuable information on weight gain, important tests, health and well-being during pregnancy, eating for more than two (including meal plans), premature births and delivery (both Cesarean and vaginal). Personal stories from women who've had multiple births (in sidebars called ""The Good, the Bad and the Snuggly"") are a nice change of pace from the otherwise objective (though never cold) narrative. The authors favor bulleted points and give frequent warnings that their advice here is merely a starting point. For a book of its size, it has a remarkably comprehensive Resources section, listing Web sites for general information, breastfeeding information and more.
