Abstract
An empowering approach to managing stress quickly and effectively during a high-risk pregnancy
.
Not enough women are told how profoundly stress impacts their pregnancy, especially if they are high-risk--but the truth is that stress, if left unmanaged, becomes a serious risk factor for pregnancy complications from preeclampsia and gestational diabetes to preterm labor and poor blood flow to the baby. In this cutting-edge resource--the first of its kind meant specifically for women with high-risk pregnancies--Parijat Deshpande explains why effective stress management is a critical component to prenatal care in order to manage and prevent pregnancy complications. Through peer-reviewed, evidence-based research, powerful true stories and Parijat's compelling personal journey through a very high-risk pregnancy, Pregnancy Brain presents a groundbreaking understanding of the effects of stress and stress management on pregnancy and fetal health and empowers women to take charge of their health and lower their risk of pregnancy complications and preterm birth.
In a refreshingly down-to-earth book, Pregnancy Brain shows:
* How mental and emotional stress translate into physiological changes during pregnancy predisposing you to pregnancy complications
*The power of a self-repair mechanism that's naturally built into your body can help manage and prevent pregnancy complications
*The difference between anxiety and fear and why that matters for pregnancy health
*How reshaping your relationship and experience of your body can turn off the stress response (which underlies pregnancy complications)
*How trusting the "early warning whispers" from your body can impact the course of your pregnancy
*How to build a rock-solid medical team that alleviates--instead of exacerbates--anxiety
By the end of of Pregnancy Brain, you'll find a radical new model for stress management for a healthy pregnancy. You'll understand how much power your body has to help you get through your high-risk pregnancy and how you can help your body stay pregnant as long as possible. Through gentle exercises and tools designed to swiftly manage your stress, Pregnancy Brain offers hope for creating miracles during a complicated pregnancy.

This book is about abortion, but more specifically, about abortions sought due to a poor prenatal diagnosis or due to serious maternal health complications. This book contains 46 personal stories, each one from a woman who decided to interrupt a much-wanted and oftentimes much-planned pregnancy. There is very little societal support for parents who make this decision, which leaves most parents to deal with their sadness and grief alone.

Abstract
Finding out your unborn child has been diagnosed with a poor or fatal prenatal diagnosis is devastating news sure to reverberate through your family's life forever. The emotional aspects of such a pregnancy and the practical implications of an adverse diagnosis are difficult to navigate. The Prenatal Bombshell is a warm and understanding companion guide through the journey from diagnosis and beyond once you've decided to either continue or end your precious pregnancy. Issues such as managing the pregnancy, delivery, termination, creating memories, future babies, and the long term impact of such a traumatic experience are all covered in detail. The lived experiences of other women who have gone through this journey are also included to provide hope, support, and guidance through difficult times. The Prenatal Bombshell does not attempt to convince women to make a particular choice about their pregnancy. It supports them from their choice onwards in a way that is honest, informative, and reliable. Filled with stories and testimonies, this is a helpful book to have during, and well beyond, a poor prenatal diagnosis.
