Top Customer Reviews
Parts 1 and 2- "Getting ready to make a baby" and "Making a baby"- were most helpful to me; and although I did not require the
last section, "Bumps on the road to baby", I'm sure many women (and men) will benefit from this section.
Overall, it's an informative and helpful book that I would recommend to anyone who is dedicated and committed to preparing themselves for a healthy and timely pregnancy.
