Diagnosed with MS at twenty-eight, author Judy Graham gave birth for the first time at
the age of thirty-eight. Her new book Multiple Sclerosis and Having a Baby provides
other women who are considering starting a family with the kind of genuine and useful
insight that comes only from firsthand experience. Multiple Sclerosis and Having a Baby
makes available not only the medical answers prospective parents need, but also the
practical suggestions and sound advice that will help them meet the many unique and
sometimes difficult challenges that face couples living with MS. In this highly
informative and readable book, Graham asks and provides answers for nearly every
question a woman with multiple sclerosis might want to consider before having a baby.
With the latest medical facts and valuable data culled from hundreds of interviews with
women who have multiple sclerosis and are currently raising a child, Graham
straightforwardly addresses such issues as the possibility of relapse, genetic
predisposition to MS, sexuality and fertility, pregnancy, postnatal care, and
breastfeeding as they relate to women with MS.
