TheBump.com Announces The Release of New Book: The Baby Bump

From morning sickness quick-fixes to Food Safety 101, The Baby Bump covers the most-asked pregnancy questions!

NEW YORK (October 13, 2010)Becoming pregnant is hugely exciting, but with so many things to think about, it can also be hugely overwhelming.  What can’t I eat now that I’m pregnant? When will I start showing? Is there any way to prevent morning sickness? Is it okay to have sex? Is there any way to avoid buying maternity clothes? Ease all your worries with The Baby Bump, a comprehensive guide that offers expert and real mom advice on surviving those all-important nine months, and the first-ever baby book brought to you by Carley Roney and the editors of TheBump.com (www.thebump.com), a leading website for expectant and first-time parents.

Featuring tips and advice on everything future mamas want to know—including what’s safe to eat, how the baby develops week by week and what to really expect in the delivery room—reading this book is like chatting with a been-there, done-that best friend. The Baby Bump offers a wealth of fun features such as Birth Plan Checklists, a Kick Count Tracker and a Work Your Wardrobe outfit assembly guide—all wrapped in a bright, cheerful package. It’s the must-have resource for the mom-to-be.

“Few things in life raise as many questions as having a baby, and we find that women onTheBump.com are constantly reaching out to each other for advice about what to do and what not to do during pregnancy,” says Carley Roney, editor in chief of TheBump.com. “For all of those women experiencing pregnancy for the first time, The Baby Bump will help shed some light on the real dos and don’ts of pregnancy.”
