In this cutting-edge work, neuropsychologist Dr. Susan Andrews shows why too much stress during pregnancy can increase the risk of childhood problems--and how you can stay in balance and boost your baby's potential with simple, effective stress solutions. As "Stress Solutions for Pregnant Moms" shows, managing stress could be just as important to your child's health as avoiding smoking and alcohol while pregnant.
Emerging new evidence is now linking too much stress during pregnancy to a higher risk for childhood emotional, physical, and behavioral problems, including preterm birth, ADHD, and learning disabilities. Not all stress, of course, is bad. The problem comes when we fail to recognize that the buildup of pressure and tension is tipping us into a danger zone.
In "Stress Solutions for Pregnant Moms," the first book of its kind, Dr. Susan Andrews provides effective and easy-to-use solutions to help pregnant women everywhere quickly measure and gently manage their stress levels:
* Self-assessments to discover your daily stress levels � Checklists of warning signs of too much stress
* A simple formula to calculate exactly how much relaxation and stress reduction you personally need each day to keep your body in balance
* A resource guide filled with more than 30 techniques to relax and lower dangerous cortisol levels--allowing you to reduce wear and tear on your body and boost your baby's potential for physical and emotional well-being.
