From the New York Times bestselling author of THE FAMILY FIRM, comes a practical exploration on how second (and later) pregnancies can feel different to the first time around. On what can feel like uneven terrain, navigating or planning a pregnancy after complications can plunge you into an unfamiliar world of decision-making; conversations with medical providers can be hard and scary, and with a lack of information given to you, it can feel like you aren't given any choices about what happens to you at all. Second pregnancies can present you with a whole new set of questions and perspectives on your experience, body and wellbeing. And with around 50% of pregnancies experiencing complications, this means as much as half of later pregnancies carry this extra layer of difficulty. Will the experience of conception and pregnancy (good or bad) be the same this time around? How do you navigate pregnancy and birth with a child already around? Perhaps above all: how can you make the best decisions for yourself? THE UNEXPECTED will answer these questions, and many more.
