New Pregnancy Book Challenges the old Rules!

During Pregnancy we are bombarded with information telling us how we should, eat, drink, sleep and exercise to keep ourselves and our babies in the best possible health.

It can be extremely hard to work out what's right as with most topics one person says one thing and another can completely disagree.

Take for instance my profession Pre and Post Pregnancy Exercise.
I advise all women not to do Full push ups, crunches, frontal planks and pilates 100's after 15 weeks pregnant as it increases diastasis recti-abdominal muscle separation BUT there are still so many other professionals promoting these 'wreck your belly' type of exercises!

So when one woman Emily Oster has come out and stood up against many controversial issues surrounding pregnancy it is bound to create a stir especially when she suggests that drinking wine is ok! Her new book is called 'Expecting Better'!

There are many topics discussed in the book but a couple discussed below in the news piece are: sushi, alcohol and bedrest.
