Pregnant women frequently change their behavior to protect their fetuses from harm. Unfortunately, typical sources of information currently lead them astray. 44% of obstetricians never mention to their patients the most important potentially avoidable cause of birth defects. Less than half of women are counseled about the most dangerous activity they undertake while pregnant. Women are given long lists of forbidden foods, but one category of food is 10,000 times more risky than others that appear on the same list. And many women perversely cut down their consumption of the single substance that's the most beneficial to their fetus. Debunking the Bump is a pregnancy book designed for parents with a thirst for factual information. It covers not only all the hot pregnancy topics (Is it safe to eat sushi? To drink coffee?), but also a variety of additional critical topics that aren't even mentioned in typical pregnancy books. Ultimately, the book provides an answer to the question, 'If you're a rational individual, what are the top few things you should do differently while pregnant?' The focus is on practical, actionable recommendations. Risks are put into context so women can make their own choices, aware of the trade-offs they're actually making. And every statement is backed up by a citation, so women can read the evidence directly for themselves.
