How many times have you been told that chocolate is bad for you? Maybe it’s time to have a re-think: a recent study shows that during pregnancy, and in moderation, chocolate could actually be beneficial for both mother and baby.
In the Daily Mail today, and on their website, you can read an exclusive extract from Jena Pincott’s new book Do Chocolate Lovers Have Sweeter Babies? published later this month by Souvenir Press. It uses the latest medical understanding to uncover the surprising science of pregnancy, and answer some of the most common questions.
From morning sickness to the shape of your bump, find out what your body is telling you about your unborn child. It turns out that how your body changes during pregnancy can reveal a lot about what your baby will be like when he or she arrives. You can predict their tastes and their temperament, and there’s even a way to predict the gender of your unborn child before the 16-week mark which is generally recognised by doctors as the earliest date when you can tell with any accuracy whether your baby will be a boy or a girl.
