Having a baby is an exciting and challenging experience. Every birth and every baby is unique, but over 30 years of helping mothers in his clinics Dr Peter Boylan, one of Ireland's best-known obstetricians, has identified common themes and similar questions for mothers and couples.

Using clear language Dr Boylan explains what happens in pregnancy, how to care for your health and your baby's, how your baby grows month by month, and what to expect during labour and delivery. Each chapter contains answers to frequently asked questions for quick reference, and a full A-Z of common terms adds further detail.

Fully revised and updated, this fifth edition of The Irish Pregnancy Book is an essential guide to having a baby in Ireland, a user-friendly reference for expectant mothers to turn to time and time again.

Dr Peter Boylan, MAO, FRCPI, FRCOG, is a retired consultant obstetrician/gynaecologist. He practiced at the National Maternity Hospital in Holles Street, Dublin, where he was Master from 1991 to 1998.

We had first hand experience of Dr Boylan’s reassuringly no-nonsense manner ... he shot down all the internet research-driven, anxiety riddled questions [we] managed to dig up, in a firm, but kind, reassuring manner. This book makes that approach available to everyone. Do yourself a favour, buy it and avoid Google.
