University Hospitals Physician Authors Working Woman's Pregnancy Book
Date:5/5/2008

CLEVELAND, May 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Marjorie Greenfield, M.D., obstetrician- gynecologist at University Hospitals MacDonald Women's Hospital, is hitting bookstores next week with The Working Woman's Pregnancy Book.

From pre-conception planning, infertility issues, and the physical and emotional changes of each trimester, to labor and birth, breastfeeding and adjusting to parenthood, this up-to-date guide discusses in a warm and engaging tone all subjects facing new mothers. This unique 500+ page book also covers issues of special concern to those women who hold jobs during their pregnancies, such as:

-- Is my workplace safe for my developing baby?

-- When should I tell my employer that I am expecting?

-- How can I handle the discomforts of pregnancy when I need to work?

-- What laws will protect me when I take medical leave?

Dr. Greenfield draws from her experiences as an obstetrician and a working mom, and from more than a hundred interviews with mothers ranging from factory workers to high-powered attorneys, to create a unique resource for working women.

"I wanted to write a pregnancy book that spoke to women in the workforce," said Dr. Greenfield. "Having a baby brings particular challenges to women who are trying to maintain their careers, and I wanted to provide factual information plus tips and encouraging words from moms who have been there, to help them get through."

The Working Woman's Pregnancy Book includes checklists for multitasking moms-to-be, helpful illustrations, stories and advice from experienced mothers and information on everything from planning a pregnancy to balancing life after the baby is born.

A well-known expert in her field, Dr. Greenfield is also the author of Dr. Spock's Pregnancy Guide as well as hundreds of articles for the Web. She maintains a personal web site and blog, available at http://www.marjoriegreenfield.com.

The Working Woman's Pregnancy Book is published by Yale University Press with ISBN 978-0-300-11324-2 (paperback). It hits bookshelves on May 8, 2008.
