Renaissance Women's Group – Austin OBGYN

Pregnancy Resources and Books

Find pregnancy resources to answer all of your questions

Our Austin obgyns know that pregnancy and parenthood bring just as much joy and wonder as they do questions, but you aren’t alone. Our obgyn office offers pregnancy resources to answer all of your questions. Our physicians also recommend books and websites to take the mystery out of pregnancy and parenting.

Pregnancy resources at Renaissance Women’s Group

You can find a wealth of pregnancy resources at our obgyn office. Our Austin obgyns recommend that first-time moms take the basic or the comprehensive childbirth class, while experienced parents should consider taking the refresher course. Sibling classes can also help children over the age of two prepare for the arrival of a new brother or sister.

The offerings don’t end with childbirth and sibling classes, our Austin obgyn office provides baby-care and parenting classes as well as infant CPR classes. If you have questions about breastfeeding, your obgyn can give you information about lactation classes in the area.

Our Austin obgyns also recommend that you take a tour of the hospital. Because you will give birth there, you want to feel comfortable with the hospital and know what to expect from your labor and delivery experience.

Other pregnancy resources: Books and websites

Pregnancy books and websites can supplement the information you gain from our Austin obgyns. Some recommended reading for expectant parents includes “What to Expect When You’re Expecting,” “Giving Birth with Confidence” and “Our Bodies, Ourselves: Pregnancy and Birth.”

Once the baby is born and you find that you have a question in the middle of the night, our Austin obgyns recommend referring to “Complete Authoritative Guide: Caring for Your Baby and Young Child: Birth to Age 5” and “The Complete Book of Breastfeeding.”

When it comes to internet pregnancy resources, it’s important not to rely on just any website. Our Austin obgyns recommend the following websites:

  • Uptodate.com
  • Mayo Clinic
  • childbirthconnections.org
  • Babycenter.com
  • healthychildren.org
  • Nemours.org

You have support and pregnancy resource to refer to as you move throughout this exciting chapter of your life. Contact us if you would like to schedule an appointment with our Austin obgyns as you prepare to welcome your bundle of joy.
