Review

Mid-Ohio Valley Parent, January 2012
“This has been a great resource for moms-to-be throughout the years and this latest edition is no exception!” 

InfoDad.com, 1/12/12
“This excellent book…certainly does make the process from pregnancy to birth (and for the first month or so afterwards) much easier to cope with and understand…The sensitivity and care with which Curtis and Schuler present all information—positive, negative or neutral—remain hallmarks of this fact-packed and thick oversize paperback…Reading it provides much of the assurance of a knowledgeable 24-hour-a-day companion who can take you through the many vicissitudes of pregnancy with a firm and knowing hand. Even women who have been pregnant before will benefit from the information here—and those in their first pregnancies will find the book invaluable.”
 
Sacramento Book Review, February 2012
“Most women will find that this book contains everything they need for a healthy pregnancy.”

Bookviews blog, March 2012
“As comprehensive a body of information about pregnancy as you will find anywhere.”

Format: Hardcover
Upon finding out that they are pregnant, the first thing many women do (besides scheduling an appointment with their doctor or midwife) is go shopping for books. There are many pregnancy guides available, covering every baby-related topic under the sun, but it's important to get one that is as up-to-date as possible. Thank goodness for the new, seventh edition of "Your Pregnancy Week by Week"! This is one of those books that aims to answer every question readers could possibly have about how pregnancy affects their own health and about the growth of their baby. Each chapter tells readers how big their baby is during a particular week and offers information and advice on common pregnancy ailments, things that might come up when dealing with their healthcare provider, nutrition, exercise, and even topics like traveling and preparing your pet for your baby. As this book is written by a board certified gynecologist, pregnancy is approached from a very traditional, hospital-oriented view; readers who are interested in alternative birth topics will not find much useful information on ideas like birth centers or doulas. Readers will appreciate the extensive index, which makes it easy to find information on a specific subject, and everything is clearly-explained. Most women will find that this book contains everything they need for a healthy pregnancy.

I went to go open "What to Expect When Expecting" and it was downright horrifying. The first few chapters seemed to be about everything that could go wrong. I quickly ditched it and bought "Your Pregnancy Week by Week" and it is much more optimistic. Everything is neatly organized into a by-the-week manner, and it include pregnancy tips for both mom and dad, pictures, and lots of information. Would most defiantly recommend!

I am currently a father to be, and at first my wife and I were overjoyed with this book. The sections are nicely laid out, and we would flip to each new week and read it two or three times in a single day, oohing and aahing over the wonderful pictures of our baby growing and maturing.
But then I paid a bit more attention as I read, especially in the later pages of the book, and I became a bit furious.
First of all, as many others have noted, the book seems to try its hardest to frighten first-time mothers at every turn. I believe that it is important to know about common birth problems and defects, but the authors of the book take this a step too far. They insist on including some horrendous condition or complication in pretty much every chapter. Just when you are grooving on the great things happening to your baby's growth in a given week, they'll stop you with some horrific section like "why your baby will probably strangle themselves in the womb." I'm exaggerating, but that's the feeling I got in every chapter of the book.
Also, and this one angers me even more, the book is obviously and unapologetically written from a doctor's point of view. I don't mean that they write as a medical professional with tons of experience. They write more as a dictator of the delivery room, a place where the woman will have no choice but to follow every directive without question or complaint. The woman's role and control are downplayed at every turn.
And don't even get me started on their "section" on home births. They have one little 3-paragraph section, tucked away, that says basically "home birth is more likely to kill your baby... never do it.

I bought this book hoping it would satisfy my urge to know every detail of what was happening inside my body during pregnancy--down to the most minute scientific things--but I quickly realized that the book's large size was very deceptive. While the few informative biological overviews beginning each chapter are interesting, and the illustrations showing baby's development are a plus, this book is largely made up of fluffy filler and subjective, fairly conservative, and wholly presumptuous pregnancy advice, some medical but mostly just general opinion. Most of the book is made up of information you can easily find out online or from your doctor (like proper nutrition or things to abstain from) or sections on personal choices that most women can/should figure out for themselves (like "how to have a happy pregnancy").The "dad tips" sprinkled throughout are especially stupid; they sound like they are straight from the 1950s and geared toward a completely clueless/uninvolved partner. Also, the exercises for each week are ridiculous...they might be helpful for someone who has never exercised in any capacity...ever. And as others have said, there is a ton of unnecessary fear-inducing information that will never apply the majority of pregnancies, and in the small chance that they do, you will talk to your doctor about it anyway. For any intelligent, modern woman, this book could almost be comical if it weren't so annoying.

If you are a smart person who can think for herself, don't bother reading this book. It's incredibly annoying, with a condescending tone that treats you as if you're a stupid little woman in a "delicate condition." Sorry to be blunt, but this book insults me.

As a master's level health researcher, I suppose I approach most books that convey medical information with healthy skepticism, expecting data and support for the claims authors male. I also like to be presented with balanced evidence and then left to make my own decision. Maybe most others don't want this... in any case, this book simply spouts 1) outdated medical information that has long been disproven or 2) one side of a complicated question or 3) unsupported claims about things that might be personal pet issues for the authors, and then uses exclamation points for emphasis. The overall effect is hysterical and shrill. I'm so surprised a physician wrote this book. She obviously wrote it for a pregnant woman who came here in a time machine from 1955.

I agree, the weekly format is helpful. But there are many other books out there that use this same format and are far more intelligently written. Mayo Clinic's guide to healthy pregnancy comes to mind.

Seriously, with so many options, why buy and read a book that talks down to you, omits important information, perpetuates myths, fosters worry, and overuses exclamation points?
