Description

Women are celebrating pregnancy like never before: with an attitude of cheerful anticipation, optimism, pride, growth, and empowerment! The Joy of Pregnancy reflects this positive spirit by emphasising what's normal, fun, and even funny about pregnancy. In this thoroughly revised and updated second edition of her path-breaking book, author Tori Kropp covers recent advances in medical knowledge and changes in typical hospital procedures. The Joy of Pregnancy's month-by-month format provides the essential information that expectant parents crave: how the baby is developing, how the mothers body is changing, how to prepare for birth and baby, and the pros and cons of various pregnancy and childbirth-related choices parents face. Kropp's tone is reassuring and authoritative, but also non-judgmental and often humorous. Questions and answers from her online community Stork Site, highlighted tips, and quick-reference facts make the text fun to read as well as informative. With this book by their side, expectant parents will be prepared to take an active role in ensuring a healthy, happy, and truly joyful pregnancy.

Author Biography

Tori Kropp, R.N., has delivered thousands of babies at the prestigious California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco, where she has worked for two decades. The birth process has been a fascination of Toris since childhood, and even as an experienced nurse, she still considers pregnancy care to be more of a passion than a career. After studying anthropology and psychology as an undergraduate at Michigan State University, she earned her nursing degree from Manatee College in Florida. Tori chose to work in perinatal nursing because it allows her to have a hands-on role in childbirth. An active member of the health care community, Tori is a member of the Association of Womens Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses, and the California Nurses Association. In 1990, after observing that pregnant women were coming into the hospital more and more worried and anxious about labor, Tori founded a unique pre- and post-natal teaching program: PillowTalk, Modern Childbirth Education. Her strategy in these classesteaching women not to overwhelm themselves with information and to focus instead on trusting their bodies and enjoying their pregnancieswas an instant success. In the mid 1990s, Tori used this same evenhanded, positive approach to pregnancy in founding Stork Site (R), a community website for expectant and new parents. Bursting with activity, this site became one of the Internets first successful communities and later became a part of ivillage.com. Tori has been interviewed on national television and radio and in national print publications, including CNN, Good Morning America, The Wall Street Journal, New York Post, Washington Times, Atlanta Journal Constitution and Chicago Sun-Times. She lives in Marin County, California, with her family. Her website is TheJoyOfPregnancy.com
