Description de l'ouvrage

11 octobre 2011
Brain Candy for expectant parents!

Pregnancy is an adventure.

Lots of books tell you the basics—“the baby is the size of [insert fruit here].” But pregnant science writer Jena Pincott began to wonder just how a baby might tinker with her body—and vice versa—and chased down answers to the questions she wouldn’t ask her doctor, such as:

• Does stress sharpen your baby’s mind—or dull it?

• Can you predict your baby’s temperament?

• Why are babies born in the darker months of the year more likely to grow up to be novelty-loving risk takers?

• Are bossy, dominant women more likely to have boys?

• How can the cells left behind by your baby affect you years later?

This is a different kind of pregnancy book—thoughtful, fun, and filled with information you won’t find anywhere else.

Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

“Do Chocolate Lovers have Sweeter Babies is utterly fascinating … and a great read.”
—Christiane Northrup, M.D., ob/gyn physician and author of the New York Times bestsellers: Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom and The Wisdom of Menopause

“Having delivered many babies in Africa and raised one of my own, I was thrilled to find plenty of old-fashioned common sense suffusing Pincott’s survey of cutting-edge research. Casual, but never careless, her light style is a fine complement to her balanced, informed scholarship. Covering everything from martinis to Mozart, Pincott’s book is full of useful thinking that will inform and comfort expectant mothers (and fathers) everywhere.”
—Cacilda Jethá, M.D., co-author (with Christopher Ryan) of Sex at Dawn: The Prehistoric Origins of Modern Sexuality

"In Do Chocolate Lovers Have Sweeter Babies?, Jena Pincott takes us on a fascinating tour through the science of pregnancy. She answers questions, shares stories, and passes on insights gleaned from her exhaustive research. Reading it is like having a friend—an extraordinarily wise, funny, and well-informed friend—walk you through the nine months before birth. Pincott tells you everything you wanted to know about pregnancy but were afraid to ask."
—Annie Murphy Paul, author of Origins: How the Nine Months Before Birth Shape the Rest of Our Lives

"Delightful! This book is destined to become everywoman's --and man's --secret guide to pregnancy. A must read."
—Louann Brizendine, M.D. neuropsychiatrist author of The Female Brain and The Male Brain

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Buy it for yourself, and buy it for all your pregnant friends! 5 janvier 2013

I'm an NPR dork -- I can't get enough of random information -- so this book was right up my alley. I bought several copies and when I find out a friend is expecting, if she's anywhere as near to my nerd level, I give them as gifts. Great great book!

Update: I've given this book to 3 pregnant friends now. One posted a public thank you to me on Facebook last night: "Thank you so much for recommending this book! I'm not even done with it yet and I love it!" and another texted me at 1am. "I can't put this book down. You are the best!".

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A break from the usual pregnancy babble. 27 mai 2012
Par Syrican - Publié sur
Finally, a pregnancy book that goes beyond the typical, "today, your baby is an apricot and has eyes - make sure you're taking your Omega-3's!". Very fun, informative and fascinating without resorting to scare tactics, pushing an agenda, or assuming the reader is wholly new to the concept of pregnancy. Also, as the author mentions, the book is structured so you can skip straight to any question and read in short, digestible standalone chapters. I'll be gifting this to every newly pregnant friend I have.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent book, thoroughly researched 27 mars 2012

I am a scientist and am also pregnant. Most of the information I acquire generally comes from scientific journals and I have very high standards when it comes to research, reporting, and bias. I found this book refreshingly honest and interesting but not pushy. All scientific evidence presented is well cited and obviously thoroughly researched. It was also a touching personal tale that I could very much identify with. I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone.

I am just towards the end of this, and can't even wait til finishing to review it. It is easily read, backed by extensively cited scientific studies, which are wonderfully explained. I am pregnant, and just mesmerized by all the things here to learn, and implement wherever relevant. I like it along with "Origins", as a practical, useful, and also extremely absorbing read about the pre natal experience, and what can influence a babies future well being. Although they are slightly different in approach, and not strictly apples to apples, I much prefer this and "Origins", to "The Better Baby Book", for exploring and explaining impact of the in utero environment on your baby. "The Better Baby Book", which I had hoped to devour and live by, seems more like a marketing tool to sell the author's supplements and "coaching services". Some interesting things there, but LOTS to be skeptical of!

I purchased this for a baby shower gift and was so intrigued by the first chapter that I read it all before I gave it away! Pincott is an intelligent, witty writer and has a way of making the science in her book understandable and relateable. If you've ever had any questions about the why's of pregnancy, this is the book to read. Loved it!
