It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you; He will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed. Deuteronomy 31:8

A Little Think


By Lucy J. Puryear, M.D.
Houghton Mifflin Company

A "must read" for expectant moms...all about your emotions, your mental health, and your happiness during and after pregnancy! Dr. Lucy Puryear is a practicing psychiatrist specializing in women's reproductive health. She appears on news specials and talk shows as an expert/expert witness. Hers is the first book to explore the full range of emotional experience for pregnant women. Reading the book is like being with Lucy, warmly encouraging, gently wise. You'll go back to this book again and again for its solid experience and reliable research that will cut down on your "wondering time," giving you more time to enjoy expecting!

Lucy's reassuring advice covers how to make a birthing plan for emotional well-being; how and when to get essential rest; real-life bonding with your baby; how to make decisions about necessary medications during pregnancy, postpartum depression, eating disorders, and more. You'll read just how normal you are in your feelings about whether you'll be a good mom and the loss of control you experience when taking on a newborn!

The emotional roller coaster of pregnancy is a universal experience for women, but it is not universally discussed the way Dr. Puryear lays it out. Let her navigate the uncharted waters for your pregnancy "trip" to ensure smoother sailing!
