The Panic Free Pregnancy had insighful answers to so many of my questions and fears about my pregnancy. I worried about exercising and eating certain foods and Dr. Broder explained in a calming straightforward and infomative style the answers to my questions.

I read this book when I was pregnant with my first child, and it really puts things into perspective when it comes to the many myths/beliefs/scares surrounding pregnancy. It's well written and structured around questions that pregnant women may have, making it easy to focus on the areas one is wondering about. It's based on research and therefore very fact oriented, there are no pictures and no touchy-feely accounts.

All in all a good read for an anxious mother to be, or for a mother to be surrounded by over-anxious loved ones.

Dr. Broder addresses the myths and misconceptions surrounding pregnancy. As a RAND researcher and OB GYN at UCLA he gives you the reasoning and scientific support to why it's ok to dye your hair, drink coffee, and travel. It is written in a down to earth style, by someone who who obviously knows his stuff. If your contemplating having a baby or already pregnant, this is a ' must read'. Health care providers who treat women of child bearing age would also benefit from reading this book. My OB GYN told me about this book. It has a lot of information that most phsycians don't have the time to investigate. The writing style is straightforward and funny. Now I have real scientific facts to support my choice to exercise during pregnancy, eat sushi (only the type Dr. Broder suggests), fly during my sixth month to my brothers wedding. I can drink a glass of wine and not worry about those dirty looks. Research shows it's all safe! Get the book for you or a friend. It's great!

I have nothing but wonderful things to say about this book. Like so many of the women here, I found the early stages of pregnancy to be one gigantic scarefest by just about everyone I ran into. The misconceptions & myths about what is & isn't safe in pregnancy are astounding. Prior to reading this book, I felt that the 'advice' thrown at you by even strangers on the street to be sometimes just illogical & MEANT to scare you. Someone actually told me that under no circumstances should I even TOUCH raw chicken when pregnant because the salmonella could enter my skin through my fingernails!?! I couldn't help thinking that if every woman had to follow every 'rule' set forth by some of this ridiculous advice, humans as a species would have come to an end long ago. Thank GOD for Dr. Broder for writing this book and allowing me to embrace this experience & not be terrified by it. I only wish I could actually have him as my OB-GYN to deliver my baby!! A MUST read.
