Thanks A Lot (More)
IF I’VE LEARNED TWO THINGS OVER the last 23 years, it’s that kids don’t raise themselves—and
books don’t write themselves (no matter how long you look at a blank screen).
Fortunately, I haven’t had to take either job on by myself. For the kid raising (officially finished,
though, let’s face it—does it really ever end?), I’ve had the best partner-in-parenting out there, my
husband, Erik—who also happens to be my partner in What to Expect. For the book writing, I’ve had
dozens of colleagues and friends pitch in—contributing support, insight, and ideas in the creation (and
re-creation … and re-creation … and re-creation) of four editions of What to Expect® When You’re
Some of those helpers have come and gone—but others have stood by since day one, and edition
one. Thanks a lot to:
Sandee Hathaway, for all your valuable contributions to What to Expect. You’re a great sister and
an even greater friend.
Suzanne Rafer, editor and friend, who has faithfully guided What to Expect from conception
through delivery four times over—dotting every “i,” crossing every “t,” deleting every misguided pun
(and pair of parens). What’s in a name? When it comes to What to Expect, a lot—and we have
Suzanne to thank for the memorable moniker that helped launch not only 29 million copies, but
hundreds of headlines, cartoons, and parodies.
Peter Workman, a publisher of uncommon integrity and uncompromising commitment—who
believed in our book when bookstores didn’t, who let What to Expect’s grass roots take their slow
and steady time sprouting, who never gave up on the little series that could, and did.
Everyone else at Workman who’s helped with our latest delivery: David Matt, for believing in
evolution (of Cover Mom), taking artistic chances, and overseeing our very challenging—and very
successful—Extreme Makeover. John Gilman, for your extreme patience in this extreme makeover—
and for making illustration magic happen. Lisa Hollander, for always being my favorite designing
woman, as well as to Weiheng Tang. Tim O’Brien for bringing to life Cover Mom, The Next
Generation—and for finally getting her off her rocker. Lynette Parmentier for re-creating as an actual
quilt our iconic illustrated quilt. Karen Kuchar for inking our hot mamas (almost makes me want to
run out and get pregnant again!) and Tom Newsom for our fabulous fetuses. Irene Demchyshyn for
going with the flow and keeping the flow going. And my other phenomenal friends at Workman,
including Suz2 (Suzie Bolotin), Helen Rosner, Beth Doty, Walter Weintz, Jenny Mandel, Kim Small,
and Amy Corley.
My other partner, Sharon Mazel. You’re my mini-me, my other (better) half, my BFF—and I love
you. To the beautiful Daniella, Arianne, Kira, and Sophia, for sharing your amazing mom with me
(and for getting sick and breaking bones only when absolutely necessary). And to the doctor in the
house, Jay, for his great biology lessons and his good nature—but mostly, for letting me be the other
woman in Sharon’s life.
Dr. Charles Lockwood, our remarkable medical advisor, for your concise and precise advice,
your meticulous attention to detail (medical and otherwise), and your obvious compassion for moms
and babies. It’s truly incredible how much you know, how much you do (I get exhausted just reading
your CV), and how much you care.
Steven Petrow (MG), Mike Keriakos, Ben Wolin, Jim Curtis (CSOB), Sarah Hutter, and all my
wonderful friends and partners at Waterfront Media, for making our vision of whattoexpect.com and
My What to Expect a reality. Thanks, also, to the amazing community of moms—not only for making

our site the special place that it is, but for sharing your bellies, babies, and toddlers with me every
The two other guys in my life (a girl could get spoiled): Marc Chamlin, for your keen legal eagle
eye, your business smarts, your unflagging friendship and support; and Alan Nevins, for your
masterful management, phenomenal finessing, endless patience, persistence, and hand-holding.
Jennifer Geddes and Fran Kritz, for helping us get our facts straight (check … check … check!).
Dr. Jessica Wu, for your impeccable pregnancy skin care counsel, and Dr. Howie Mandel, for being
such a good sport about the What to Expect questions I’m always sneaking in at my annuals. And
always, to always-inspiring Lisa Bernstein, Executive Director of the What to Expect Foundation, for
making miracles happen (plump, full-term miracles), and to Zoe, Oh-That-Teddy, and Dan Dubno.
To Erik, my partner in everything I do, always and forever, for all the reasons listed above, and
more than I can list. There’s no one I’d rather mix business and pleasure with, and I love you forever.
And speaking of love, to my pride and joy (I’m not saying who’s who), Emma (the baby who started
it all) and Wyatt (the baby who followed). I love you guys—you’ve made me one lucky mama.
The adorable Howard Eisenberg, father and friend (not necessarily in that order); Victor Shargai
(and John Aniello) for your love and support; and to the world’s best (and newly trimmest) in-laws,
Abby and Norman Murkoff. And to Rachel, Ethan, and Liz, Sandee’s fantastic three, and to Tim, her
Numero Uno.
To ACOG, for being advocates for women and babies, and to all of the doctors, midwives,
nurses, and nurse practitioners who work every day to make pregnancy safer and happier for
expectant families. Most of all, to all the expectant, new, and old moms (and dads) who’ve helped
make each edition of What to Expect better than the last. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again,
parents are my most invaluable resource—so keep those cards, letters, and e-mails coming!
Thanks again, and again, everybody … and may all your greatest expectations come true!
