Are you planning a pregnancy? Are you already pregnant? Do you feel confused or powerless because you don’t know where to start?
No matter what stage of pregnancy you are at, you probably have many questions. It may be difficult to determine which questions need asking. As you scan the various pregnancy guides on the market, you will find many choices and lots of information. But how do you translate the vast amount of information into useable, practical knowledge?
The Pregnancy Power Workbook’s unique question-and-answer format will boost your pregnancy knowledge. When you seek knowledge and actively participate in the experience, you will become empowered! If you settle for a passive approach to pregnancy, by accepting information and instruction without explanations, the opportunity to become empowered will pass you by.

Professionals develop treatment plans in which individual differences and needs filter into a generic “prenatal care package.” The medical profession simplifies these complexities into a basic “quick visit” approach, emphasizing the Trust everything is fine and I will tell you if something is wrong method. Rather than becoming empowered, knowledgeable, and confident, many women assume a passive role. Unaware of what information they need or what questions to ask, they seek advice (right or wrong) from friends, family, the Internet, or books as a way to gain more control.
