5.0 out of 5 stars The essential pregancy book. June 5 2007
By Mommy - Published on Amazon.com
I actually have the 2nd edition of this book, but I know this one is just as good.
Dr. Greenfield tells it like it is. Everything you ever needed to know is in this book. Furthermore, it's written in a way that even your husband will sit down and read it!

I loved it and attribute the wonderful, active, beautiful, daughter I have to all the things I learned in this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Dr. Spock's Pregnancy Guide Oct. 1 2004
By Tricia Hale - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
As a young woman who hopes to become pregnant in the near future, I found this book to be extremely informative. It is organized in such a way that the information is easy to find and understand. I found the advice to be relevant and practical. I particularly enjoyed the "Parent - "Parent excerpts which contain quotes from parents relating to each chapter. I intend to use this book as my guide if I am lucky enough to experience the miracle of pregnancy & childbirth.
2.0 out of 5 stars Not great April 21 2008
By Hannah Cherney - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book really isn't that great. It came highly recommended, so I was disappointed when I got it. It pretty much just says exactly what "What to Expect When You're Expecting" says...word for word sometimes! The books I really use are What to Expect When You're Expecting, The Pregnancy Bible, The Mother of All Pregnancy Organizers, The Everything Twins...Book, and The Pregnancy Countdown. You really don't need to buy the "Dr. Spock" book.

Book is smaller than I expected and in a soft cover. I haven't read it yet but I trust Dr. Spock
4.0 out of 5 stars For the dummy in me May 8 2013
By Jeggicah - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is my first book and i was inspired to buy it b/c my parents raised me w/Dr Spock book made in the 80s and had good words to live by. This is helpful and has some funny quotes from real folks with stupid questions like me but afraid to ask people. Gives spaces to write notes after each chapter so you can remember what else to deal with.
