Abstract
Grâce aux progrès de la science, nous savons maintenant que le mouvement fait partie intégrante de la santé de la future maman et de son bébé. Or, puisque de grands changements s'opèrent dans le corps de la femme enceinte, la majorité des principes d'entraînement traditionnels ne s'applique plus à sa situation. C'est pourquoi ce livre propose des exercices respectant spécifiquement les besoins musculaires et articulaires qui évoluent au cours des neuf mois de la grossesse et des six mois suivant la naissance de l'enfant. Cet ouvrage contient également de judicieux conseils et de nombreux programmes pour prévenir et soulager les douleurs associées à la grossesse et à la période postnatale, pour prévenir ou éliminer les inconvénients fréquents, pour corriger les problèmes de posture les plus courants et préparer le corps à l'accouchement afin de faciliter le travail. La nouvelle maman pourra ainsi reprendre le contrôle de son corps après l'accouchement et revenir en toute sécurité à l'entraînement ou au sport.

Abstract
When Meaghan O'Connell got accidentally pregnant in her twenties and decided to keep the baby, she realized that the book she needed -- a brutally honest, agenda-free reckoning with the emotional and existential impact of motherhood -- didn't exist. So she decided to write it herself.
And Now We Have Everything is O'Connell's exploration of the cataclysmic, impossible-to-prepare-for experience of becoming a mother. With her dark humor and hair-trigger B.S. detector, O'Connell addresses the pervasive imposter syndrome that comes with unplanned pregnancy, the fantasies of a "natural" birth experience that erode maternal self-esteem, post-partum body and sex issues, and the fascinating strangeness of stepping into a new, not-yet-comfortable identity.
Channeling fears and anxieties that are still taboo and often unspoken, And Now We Have Everything is an unflinchingly frank, funny, and visceral motherhood story for our times, about having a baby and staying, for better or worse, exactly yourself.

Abstract
La grossesse est une période de bouleversements qui soulève de nombreuses questions, notamment sur l'alimentation. Est-il vrai qu'on doit « manger pour deux » ? Comment traiter les nausées ? De quelle façon composer des menus simples et variés ? Qu'en est-il de l'acide folique, du fer, des produits naturels ou des suppléments vitaminiques ? Sous les traits d'une journaliste, l'auteur mène ici l'enquête et nous fait partager ses rencontres avec un médecin, une nutritionniste, un chef cuisinier et une sage-femme. A la fois dynamique et très concret, ce guide plein d'astuces allie l'aspect pratique à la rigueur scientifique et fait le point sur les précautions à prendre, les habitudes et les croyances alimentaires concernant la grossesse.
