Reading What to Expect When You’re Expecting is a rite of passage for soon-to-be parents. I saw one estimate that over 90 percent of people who read a pregnancy book have read that one. So Sarah and I were thrilled to welcome Heidi Murkoff, author of the series, to Best of Both Worlds this week.
Heidi was looking for baby advice when she was expecting her first child. Then she realized that very few books about pregnancy had been written by people who had actually been pregnant themselves. So she decided to meet that need. Over the past four decades, her books have helped millions of people understand childbearing and childrearing.
In this episode, she talks with Sarah about her famous guide, and then about her current mission to advocate for maternal and child health.
We end with a question from a listener about how to find summer camps that can actually function as childcare. Please give the episode a listen and let us know if you read What to Expect When You’re Expecting when you were expecting!
