I purchased this book knowing that one person had rated it poorly... however without any other reviews, I took a chance. I agree with the first rater, this book is "basic".... it gives more detail on what every pregnant woman should do while pregnant... and what all the books on pregnancy already suggest. The only chapter that I found beneficial for me with gestational diabetes was the chapter on how the different insulins work within the human body. Other than that, the place that I found the best info. for gestational diabetes was on parentsplace.com message boards.... topic (pregnant and diabetic). Someone needs to write a good informative book for women with GD.

I started to read this book, then decided to skim, then decided to quit. It is all fluff. If you want a good book with meaty infomation, read Medical Management of Pregnancy Complicated Diabetes published by the ADA.

I was very disappointed. This book contained only the most basic information, and I did not find it to be helpful at all. It does not live up to it's title.

5.0 out of 5 stars This was my first book and was very helpful! July 27 2004
By Elizabeth J. Woolley - Published on Amazon.com
I am the editor of Diabetic Mommy Online Magazine - DiabeticMommy.com

I am a type 2 diabetic, and had to start insulin when I got pregnant with my son. At that time I felt there was little information on pregnancy and diabetes and this little book was a God-send.

I was not a diabetes expert by any means, so this booklet was great for giving me a frame of reference for all the new information that was suddently being shoved in my direction. When you are a newly pregnant diabetic, many times you can find yourself overwhelmed by all the information they want you to learn NOW. As time passed, I realized much of the information I was getting in kits, booklets, pamphlets and information sheets was just the same information rehashed over and over. The reason why I was able to mentally organize the information and stop feeling like I was in another country when it came to diabetes terms was because of this book.

I've looked at the other reviews and see that many of the negative reviews came from type 1 diabetics. And, I can understand why they would feel this way. They most likely have lived most of their life with this disease, and this little booklet goes over a lot of stuff they already know.

This is a little book, about 75 pages. It contains 10 brief chapters and sections with the following titles:

Diabetes, Pregnancy & You

How Your Baby Develops

What to Expect in Nine Months

Diabetes During Pregnancy

Insulin Therapy

Nutrition, Diabetes, and Pregnancy

Exercise, Diabetes, and Pregnancy

Monitoring Your Diabetes

Problems Associated with Diabetes

More About Pregnancy

Tests to Expect During Your Pregnancy

Labor and Delivery

Birth Control

1.0 out of 5 stars not for diabetics Aug. 13 2005
By Fathia S. Hussein - Published on Amazon.com
I have been a diabetic for 10 years. I just expected this book to add something to my existing knowledge. It so introductory.. and does not give any additional information, then what diabetics already know

1.0 out of 5 stars This book needs better focus July 8 2007
By Alison Aves - Published on Amazon.com
I was very disappointed by this book. It seems to have been written for children. It has some information that seems wildly inappropriate for a book that purports to be about pregnancy -- a section on birth control, with an explanation of what a condom is and how it works, for example. It also takes pains to explain terms such as "trimester." It doesn't get very deep into what a diabetic woman can expect and encounter during pregnancy, and that's what I need. I agree with another reviewer that someone needs to write a good book about diabetes and pregnancy.
