The modern bible for pregnancy, birth and the fourth trimester: Midwife Marley’s Guide for Everyone (31 March 2022)

Marley shares the latest guidance that will help all expectant parents understand an entire full 9 months of pregnancy and beyond into the rarely discussed fourth trimester. Marley’s passion for education and informed consent shines throughout the book, providing all of the evidence-based information to support everyone. There are answers to questions you never knew you wanted to ask. Like, what are my choices? Is there a ‘right’ way to give birth?

From asking to see the correct BMI chart based on ethnic backgrounds to what birthmarks look like on different melanated skin, Marley Hall is on a mission to shake up the parenting world to transform the way we discuss pregnancy and birth, helping thousands of women achieve a positive birth experience.
