James F. Clapp III, MD, is a professor emeritus of reproductive biology at Case Western Reserve University and a research professor of obstetrics and gynecology at the University of Vermont College of Medicine. He lives in Byron, California.
In this revised second edition, physician Clapp (professor emeritus, reproductive biology, Case Western Reserve Univ., obstetrics and gynecology, Univ. of Vermont Coll. of Medicine) and exercise physiologist Cram update their leading title on the benefits of exercise during pregnancy. This title is best aimed at professional athletes who are expecting or pregnant women working in the fitness industry who want to continue exercising throughout their pregnancy; it is not for someone beginning an exercise program. The information is scientific in nature and includes charts, graphs, exertion scales, and notes to many scientific studies. -VERDICT Only academic libraries with collections for prenatal workers need acquire, but libraries with the first edition should buy this update.
