Someone gave me this book late in my first pregnancy, so I didn't read it as thoroughly as others I had read. What I have read, and from glancing through the first parts, it is a concise, informative review about pregnancy, labor and delivery. It has some nice areas to enter information about your pregnancy, such as notes about your appointments & your condition at each, daily diet tallies, etc. Certain sections containing lots of information are alphabetized according to topic (e.g., alternative birth settings, induced labor, kick count, twins), which is nice as a reference when you just want to look things up, as I did occasionally. Also, there is a nice brief section on exercises you can do to alleviate certain conditions of pregnancy, which I used.
Another good pregnancy and aftercare book, instead of the same pregnancy book that we all get. I enjoyed the information in this one.
A guidebook for pregnancy and having your baby. Written by an obstetrician and a mother.
Some great information
This was very helpful and informative during my pregnancies!
Great pregnancy reference!!!!
Very informative for me during my first pregnancy.
This was a terrific book to have while going through pregnancy!
A good reference book-great diagrams/charts included.
Read about the latest research and pregnancy-related facts on many topics, including:
Simple steps to good nutrition
Tips for comfort as the body changes during pregnancy
Explanations of medical terms and procedures
Guide to starting breast feeding successfully
Warning signs-what to watch for and when to seek help...
Lots of great information about pregnancy, labor and delivery.
This book has good information in easy to read easy to find format.
Great information for any expectant mother. Basic information on what to expect per trimester, a glossary on terms any pregnant woman should know, review of common procedures and tests.
Book is brand new, never read. It is a duplicate copy I received when I became pregnant. It is full of easy to understand information that is invaluable to any expecting parent.
Pregnancy book that covers all the bases. I got two of these books as gifts this is the one I've been waiting to give away to a friend but everyone seems to have it! I recommend it if its your first pregnancy and you just have tons of questions.
Excellent book worth reading
