A Brain Is Born: Exploring the Birth and Development of the Central Nervous System
Great book for expectant mothers, June 28, 2005
Dr. Upledger’s "Brain Is Born" proves a delightful read for the curious expectant mother. This book is designed to give the lay reader detailed insight into how a baby is created and develops from fertilization until the baby is born.
I found this work fascinating. The whole time I read the book, I reminded myself to make sure and read this book when I’m pregnant. Each week Dr. Uplegder tells you want part of your baby’s brain and body is growing and how your health and emotions can affect this growing process.
The frequent drawings, while not technical, serve to lighten up a subject-neurology- that would otherwise prove daunting for some readers. If your a super curious pregnant mother that wants to be well informed about your growing baby, you’ll want to read this book.
