Everything Else You Need to Know When You're Expecting

The New Etiquette for the New Mom

Paula Spencer

St. Martin's Griffin

Can you ask your friends to do your baby's laundry? When should you tell your boss you're pregnant? How do you let your mother-in-law know that you're not naming the baby after her? And what if your water breaks in public? Everything Else You Need to Know When You're Expecting is the complete guide to the old and new customs, traditions and etiquette for expectant and new parents, and those who love them. After years of both professional and first-hand experience, Paula Spencer has compiled the answers to those questions every woman asks herself as soon as she knows she's expecting. Topics include Pregnancy at Work, Handling Busybodies, and Tricky issues (such as the all-too-common anxiety about starting labor in a crowd--or an elevator). There are also detailed explorations of such classic concrns as Naming, birth announcements and shower gifts.
