Abstract
Grâce aux progrès de la science, nous savons maintenant que le mouvement fait partie intégrante de la santé de la future maman et de son bébé. Or, puisque de grands changements s'opèrent dans le corps de la femme enceinte, la majorité des principes d'entraînement traditionnels ne s'applique plus à sa situation. C'est pourquoi ce livre propose des exercices respectant spécifiquement les besoins musculaires et articulaires qui évoluent au cours des neuf mois de la grossesse et des six mois suivant la naissance de l'enfant. Cet ouvrage contient également de judicieux conseils et de nombreux programmes pour prévenir et soulager les douleurs associées à la grossesse et à la période postnatale, pour prévenir ou éliminer les inconvénients fréquents, pour corriger les problèmes de posture les plus courants et préparer le corps à l'accouchement afin de faciliter le travail. La nouvelle maman pourra ainsi reprendre le contrôle de son corps après l'accouchement et revenir en toute sécurité à l'entraînement ou au sport.

The author shares hard-earned wisdom on the dos and don?ts of battling misinformation. For the past 20 years, Offit has fought for sound science and public heath. Stepping into the media spotlight as few scientists have done¯such as being one of the first to speak out against conspiracy theories linking vaccines to autism¯he found himself in the crosshairs of powerful groups intent on promoting pseudoscience. Bad Advice discusses science and its adversaries. Written with wit and passion, Offit?s often humorous guide to taking on quack experts and self-appointed activists is a must-read for anyone disturbed by the uptick in politicized attacks on science.
