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

?, 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.

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
