5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By A. Grist on June 29 2010
Format: Paperback
This book was very indepth, but didn't have a lot of info that isn't general knowledge anyway, it was great as far as straight information, but not a lot of tips/info on how to practically apply a lot of the knowledge, and not a lot of practical 'how-to's' for specific issues during pregnancy. Good to read through once but I wouldn't have purchased it. Most of the info here is info your doctor gives you anyway, or is easily gained from reputable sources online.

It's like this book is written to scare pregnant women into feeling guilty and inadequate and fearful of doing or eating anything. To many unnecessary "Just in Case!" precautions are given. I highly recommend reading books with a less strictly medicalized, more empowering approach such as Pregnancy Day By Day, or Pregnancy, Childbirth, and the Newborn: The Complete Guide. Both are better organized, better written books with beautiful photographs, layout and presentation, and much more valuable information, that don't rely on guilt and fear of the unknown to "keep you safe." Both books take a more relaxed, realistic approach, use less patronizing cutesy language.

Keep calm, stay sane, trust yourself, and avoid condescending tripe like this.

While every pregnancy is different, this book covers a lot of the most common things of what to expect. Super helpful as a first time expectant mother and father on the in's and out's from week to week in addition to labour and delivery, father issues and post-natal issues as well. Would recommend to all expectant mothers and fathers!

Format: Paperback
i think this is a terrible book full of fear mongering and outdated, opinionated (not factual) information.

maybe 25+ years ago this was the best pregnancy book out there, but the world has changed a LOT in that time and this book has barely updated a thing. I encourage pregnant women (and gift givers) to buy a more modern and open minded book that gives you an idea of what pregnancy and birth could/should be like in the 21st century.

The book has some useful information but there are much better pregnancy books in my opinion. Too alarming and very "medical model".

The ultimate guide for women who are expecting or are planning to. A complete guide to pre pregnancy, pregnancy, child birth and post partum. This edition has been updated. Keep in mind though that this book was written in the United States- so some medical factors arent the same as Canadian.
