Format: Paperback
I borrowed this book from the library and referred to it several times during the first months of my pregnancy. Like other books from this publisher, the information is well-organized and concise with lots of graphs and photos. It's by no means encyclopedic though; for more in-depth info you may want to supplement this book with the Mayo Clinic Guide to a Healthy Pregnancy, or a similar tome.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
With the excitement of expecting our first child I went in search of finding a good book to answer the many questions from pregnancy to childbirth. I looked at several books, but this is the only one that had me sitting for hours reading every detail. I had to buy it!

The great thing about this book is its ease of use. The book is divided into 6 Sections, and within each Section are many Subsections:

1. Trying for a Baby
(Example of Subsection: We want to be parents. I've had a miscarriage. We're not getting pregnant. How will I know I'm pregnant?)
2. Now You're Pregnancy
3. Your 40-Week Journey
4. Labor and Birth
5. New parents
6. A New Life

Within each Subsection the authors use Question and Answer style to discuss things such as: preeclampsia, prenatal visits, exercise, baby development, how your body changes, how / when to tell people your pregnant, working while pregnant, breastfeeding, labor, emotions of childbirth and after, neonatal intensive care, safe sleeping positions, pain relief for delivery, homebirths and hospital births, and so much more. And to keep things diversified there's also questions and answers for your partner, and a section on your partners involvement throughout pregnancy and during delivery. Along the way are also Myths and Misconceptions.

The pages are printed on nice thick glossy paper so the many color pictures and drawings look crisp and clear. There is also a Sections tab running along the top of the pages; the one you're in stays colored so you know what Section you are in.

We chose to have a midwife deliver our baby so this book suits us fine. A midwife wrote the book, and many other midwives made contributions. I'm certain if there's a question you have it's bound to be answered here.

I love this book! It is very informative, and gently written, unlike many midwife books. It does not force home birth on you but simply informs you of your options while going through the details of pregnancy and birth and nursing. I highly recommend it!
