This is an easy-to-use, practical guide for women who are experiencing pain and discomfort during their pregnancies, and for those who want to do their best to prevent an uncomfortable nine months. In clear, nonmedical language, women are told why unexpected aches and pains occur during pregnancy. Exercises are provided to ease pregnancy discomfort, along with instructions on how and why the exercises are beneficial, as well as when they are not suitable. Each exercise is illustrated with a photograph for easy reference. Break-out boxes with handy hints such as which exercises will be good in labor and which ones are suitable for specific pains such as lower back or coccyx pain are also included.
