Publisher Offers Free Resource to Docs Working with High-Risk Pregnant Women
Evolve Publishing hopes to help doctors and families through high-risk pregnancy and the risk of a preterm birth by offering free copies of their upcoming book.
McAfee, NJ (PRWEB) November 18, 2011
Evolve Publishing is offering free advanced copies of their forthcoming book, â€œHigh-Risk Pregnancy â€“ Why Me?â€ to physicians, midwives, and nurses who care for women during high-risk pregnancy. Evolve believes that the book will help to educate others on the emotional aspects of a tough pregnancy, and aid families to better understand the medical information they encounter, as well as to provide hope during this time. The goal is to provide practitioners with a comprehensive, easy-to-read reference tool to use within their practice.
Author, Kelly Whitehead, was stressed, scared, and confused. Facing a high-risk pregnancy after the loss of her first child at nearly 23 weeks, the scientist mom was disturbed by the scarcity of detailed information available on pregnancy when thereâ€™s the chance of a premature baby. So, after two ultimately successful high-risk pregnancies, she joined forces with a top doctor and preterm birth researcher, Dr. Vincenzo Berghella to complete this book.
Candace Hurley, Executive Director of Sidelines National High Risk Pregnancy Support Network says, â€œI love Kelly’s â€˜no-nonsenseâ€™ approach to dealing with a high-risk pregnancy. Why Me? echoes Sidelines’ straightforward method of educating and empowering a woman with pregnancy complications to become the most important member of her medical team. A must read, physicians and midwives should be handing it out along with prenatal vitamins to women at risk!â€
Whitehead notes that preterm birth is a major issue within the US and around the globe. Approximately 500,000 babies are born premature every year in the U.S., where the infant mortality ranks a sad number 46, worst than most other developed nations. Millions are affected by a high-risk pregnancy. Her dream is â€œthat by helping to educate families encountering a high-risk pregnancy, they can gain some comfort and actually get to enjoy their pregnancies. I hope that the doctors who work with women during this stressful time will get the opportunity to see what itâ€™s like through the eyes of their patient.â€ For more information on receiving a free copy for your practice, email the publisher at info(at)hrpwhyme(dot)com. A portion of all proceeds from the sale of this book will go to charities dedicated to helping women and babies.
