Paperback - 2016
Rate this:
Yvette Allen-Campbell and Dr. Suzanne Greenidge-Hewitt have created the ultimate pregnancy guide for today's black woman. Most pregnancy books are geared towards white culture in language and approach as well as health issues. While most of the development is the same regardless of race, there are health and cultural issues specific to women of color. But the biggest point of difference is a book written by black women- an educator and a top doctor - for black women.

Black, Pregnant and Loving It includes information on the specific health issues common to pregnant black women, from hyperventilating to dehydration, as well as skin and hair concerns. You'll learn how to select a doctor or midwife, which diet is best for you and your baby, how to identify your body's needs as well as a month-by-month view of what to expect. In addition, there are also flashbacks to older methods of childbirth and black folk myths and superstitions.

Overall this is a complete pregnancy guide rooted in modern science for the health and well-being of the black community.
