Created by leading pregnancy expert Dr. Robert A. Greene, this unique journal offers you a week-to-week plan for staying healthy and symptom-free during pregnancy and the postpartum months following the birth of your child. The Happy Baby, Healthy Mom Pregnancy Journal is filled with indispensable tips about healthy eating for two, keeping fit, and relieving discomfort. It also guides you through each doctor’s appointment, offers advice about prenatal testing, and includes questionnaires for tracking common and no-so-common pregnancy symptoms. Unlike any other pregnancy planner, this journal also provides prompts and writing space for capturing the joy, excitement, and intimate thoughts of anticipating the new arrival. Journaling has proven to be incredibly helpful in reducing stress and, in doing so, can improve how you feel — mentally and physically — throughout this life-changing time.

"When you have a baby everyone tells you to enjoy and record every moment because they go by so fast, and that’s so incredibly true. But nobody tells you when you get pregnant to take lots of pictures and record even the yucky moments because there will come a time when you will wish you remembered. The Happy Baby, Healthy Mom Pregnancy Journal can help you do just that but in addition to being a place to record the dirty details it also offers a week-to-week plan devised by Dr. Robert Greene for obtaining optimal health throughout pregnancy and the first 12 crazy weeks of the postpartum period. It contains indispensable tips about healthy eating for two, keeping fit, and relieving those oh so many discomforts. It also guides you through each doctor’s appointment, offers advice about prenatal testing, and includes questionnaires for tracking common and not-so-common pregnancy symptoms. I am a firm believer in 'Congratulations on conceiving!' gifts and this will be yet another of my go-to-gifts for expecting mamas."
