What to Expect 5.0

July 12, 2016

Heidi Murkoff sent off her proposal for "What to Expect When You're Expecting" two hours before going into labor with her first child,?Emma.

Fast-forward to the new fifth edition, out this summer, of what has become known as the pregnancy bible. It features a pregnant Emma on the cover, and Murkoff's first grandchild, Lennox, on the back.

Murkoff said this new "delivery" offers up-to-date information on everything from Zika virus to cord-blood-banking to whether marijuana edibles are safe during pregnancy (it passes through the placenta, so she suggests you pass on the pot).

The 644-page book also is peppered with new "For Fathers" boxes and includes new sections on coping with pregnancy loss, birth control choices post-partum and medications during pregnancy. Published by Workman, the soft-cover book retails for $15.95.
