    About this book
    During pregnancy, black women often experience higher incidences of diabetes, hypertension, obesity, systemic lupus, and fibroids than white women. Many have less access to affordable health care, and there are more incidents of infant mortality. For these special reasons and circumstances, they need HAVING YOUR BABY.

    This one-of-a-kind reference, from an esteemed OB-GYN who was pregnant with her fourth child during the writing, explains all the bodily changes, feelings, and medical procedures experienced by expectant mothers. With helpful checklists and comforting wisdom, Hilda Hutcherson, M.D., reassuringly addresses everything from what will happen to your emotions--and your body--during each trimester to how to prepare for labor and delivery; from the nutritional needs of your unborn child and yourself to deciding on a name; and from the warning symptoms that signal that you need to call your practitioner to the clear signs of a safe and joyful pregnancy.
