It's a cover-to-cover revision of America's bestselling guide to getting pregnant, with updated information about genetic screening, ovulation tracking, fertility treatments, and risks like Zika.

What to Expect Before You're Expecting , with over 250,000 copies in print, has everything that eager-to-be moms and dads need to know about getting pregnant, from getting their bodies ready to make a healthy baby to getting that healthy baby on board faster. You'll find baby-friendly foods to order up (say yes to yams); fertility-busters to avoid (see you later, saturated fat); how to pinpoint ovulation, time baby-making sex, keep on-demand sex sexy, and separate conception fact--it takes the average couple up to 12 months to make a baby--from myth--position matters.

With the latest on health insurance coverage, preconception travel and the Zika virus, sex selection techniques, antidepressants, and information on family-building options for single women and same-sex couples. Plus, for the 1 in 8 couples who experience infertility, the latest on both low-tech and cutting-edge fertility treatments, from medications to IVF and surrogacy. It's everything you need to know for that baby-making adventure.

This book is helpful to a certain extent, but it is of the "What to Expect" style, as you'd guess. Some people love it, but I'm not a huge fan.

I read or looked through many of the "pre-conception plan" books available through the JoCoLibrary System and this one is by far my favorite.
