Consumers’ Association has just published a revised and up-to-date edition of this comprehensive guide to pregnancy and childbirth. The book is a straightforward account for women of what should happen when all goes well, and also deals with what might happen if anything goes wrong; it gives information on rhesus incompatibility, threatened miscarriage, toxaemia, rubella and other infectious diseases in pregnancy, and advises on how to cope with a stillbirth. Types of anaesthesia and pain-relieving drugs, methods of assisted births and caesarean section are described. Apart from medical aspects, Pregnancy Month by Month explains what financial benefits are available and how and when to claim them.
