From the moment she discovers she s pregnant, every woman becomes obsessed with the life that s developing inside her. Linda Geddes was no different, except that as a journalist writing for New Scientist, she had access to the most up-to-date scientific research. What began as a personal quest to find the truth behind headlines and information that didn t patronise or confuse became a weekly column and is now this brilliant book, answering everything you ve ever wondered about having a baby, from the first pregnancy symptoms to birth and through the baby s first year.
The answers to all those burning questions that none of the other pregnancy books provides.

"What a BRILLIANT book! The antidote to anecdote, a great survey of current evidence. Just what the midwife ordered!" * Professor Alice Roberts * "Finally! A book on pregnancy, birth and babies that cuts through the myths, side-steps preachy prescriptions, and turns to the evidence. Bumpology transforms common parental anxieties into fuel for a fascinating journey through the science of the bump." * Hannah Devlin, Science Editor of The Times * "[Bumpology] answers the questions that tantalise every mother" * Daily Mail * "Linda Geddes is not afraid to ask anyone about anything! From the stream of contradictory advice to pregnant women and new parents to those little moments of wonder, Geddes digs into all of them, looking for the evidence and exploring the science. In this book she shares what she's found, with the straightforward answers and easy-going humour that is so welcome in early parenthood. Don't get pregnant without it!" * Tracey Brown, Sense About Science * "[Geddes] combines scientific research with a light and humorous tone to answer burning questions" * The Bookseller *
