Overview
Can I eat peanuts during pregnancy?
Do unborn babies dream?
Can men get pregnancy symptoms too?
How much do babies remember?
How can I get my baby to sleep through the night?
The moment she discovers she's pregnant, every woman suddenly has a million ques-tions about the life that's developing inside her. Linda Geddes was no different, except that as a journalist writing for "New Scientist "magazine she had access to the most up-to-date scientific research. What began as a personal quest to find the truth behind headlines and information that didn't patronize or confuse is now a brilliant new book. In "Bumpology," Geddes discusses the latest research on every topic that expectant parents encounter, from first pregnancy symptoms to pregnancy diet, the right birth plan, and a baby's first year.

For Geddes, a London-based science journalist and mother of two, this book began as a 14-part blog written for New Scientist magazine during her first pregnancy. As questions multiplied, the ensuing book became “a two-and-a-half-year obsession with the science of bumps, birth, and newborn babies.” Divided into three sections (“Bump,” “Birth,” and “Babies”), the text covers a wide range of questions: mundane, quirky, fascinating, and somber. Each section is then broken down into such topics as “Food and Drink,” “The Pregnant Body,” “The Big Push,” and “Weaning.” This structure helps readers focus on their specific interests, though the book might just as easily be read as an entertaining romp through the new parent’s mind. Geddes explains her method of sifting through the research, noting that many studies need to be carefully dissected, and often citing the Cochran Collaboration, a respected group with a mission to “cut through the confusion.” Because of the author’s journalism background, Geddes’s writing and science-based explanations are substantive yet accessible.
