What You Didn't Think to Ask Your Obstetrician: All Your Questions Answered

Raymond Poliakin, Author McGraw-Hill/Contemporary $9.94 (166p) ISBN 978-0-8092-4721-9
From the silly (""Can I dye my hair during pregnancy?'') to the deadly serious (``What is the risk of transmitting the AIDS virus to the fetus?''), this volume supplies answers to a multitude of questions about pregnancy. Readers will find out why pregnant women's vision becomes blurred shortly after putting in contact lenses, what effect cocaine may have on the fetus, if the baby can bruise the uterus with its kicks, or why you shouldn't take a sauna when pregnant. Using a no-nonsense, Q & A format, Dr. Poliakin provides a storehouse of important facts about health, fitness, doctor visits, drugs, special tests and medical complications during pregnancy. This is an excellent companion for the pregnant and postpartum woman. (September)
