This book made me feel great about being pregnant. So many pregnancy books either make you feel guilty for being a less-than-perfect mom-to-be or scare you to death by warning of dire consequences to you and your baby if you dared to eat non-organic broccoli.
The book is down to earth, funny, and yet filled with all kinds of valuable information on all the key topics you need to know about when you're having a baby: prenatal testing (what maternal serum screening can -- and can't -- tell you about the health of your baby), cesarean sections (what to expect if you end up having a cesarean section, the pros and cons of attempting a vaginal birth after cesarean or VBAC, how the recovery after a cesarean differs from the recover after a vaginal delivery), the relative merits of pharmacological (epidurals, medications, etc.) and non-pharmacological methods (relaxation breathing, laboring in water, etc.) of pain relief during labour, and much, much more.
Every pregnant woman should own this book.
