This book answers all the common pregnancy, birth and newborn questions... Thought-provoking and never boring, I loved it. * Mother and Baby *
Finally! A book on pregnancy, birth and babies that cuts through the myths, side-steps preachy prescriptions, and turns to the evidence. Bumpology transforms common parental anxieties into fuel for a fascinating journey through the science of the bump. * Hannah Devlin, Science Editor of The Times *
This lovely book tackles everything you'd want to know. It also provides lots of solid evidence in the form of studies and expert advice. Easy to read... I'll definitely be keeping it on my coffee table to flick through during my nine months. * Pregnancy & Birth Book of the Month *
The book is refreshingly frank and often funny. It also benefits from Geddes' constructive outrage over the misinformation and sensationalism that she says plague much of the writing about the subject. * Washington Post *
Linda Geddes is not afraid to ask anyone about anything! From the stream of contradictory advice to pregnant women and new parents to those little moments of wonder, Geddes digs into all of them, looking for the evidence and exploring the science. In this book she shares what she's found, with the straightforward answers and easy-going humour that is so welcome in early parenthood. Don't get pregnant without it! * Tracey Brown, Sense About Science *
