From one of the foremost doctors in the field and a journalist who has experienced multiple miscarriages herself comes an accessible, encouraging, and complete guide to both the causes and, more important, the prevention of miscarriage.
Though one in four American women will lose her pregnancy, with the right pre-pregnancy evaluation and ongoing care, for many women miscarriage can be prevented. During forty years of practice, Dr. Bruce Young has treated hundreds of women who experienced this heartbreaking loss and helped them bring babies to term. Now he has teamed up with one of his patients, Amy Zavatto, to write this compassionate guide that combines medical facts with insights from both the patient’s and doctor’s viewpoints. Including real-life case studies, Dr. Young provides in-depth answers to the questions: Why did this happen to me? and What can I do to prevent it next time?
Providing the most up-to-date information on physical and mental health, nutrition, and technology, here is a proactive tool and comforting resource—from an expert with real-life reasons to give every woman hope for a successful pregnancy.
