Editorial Reviews

Review

"Finally! A resource for women with diabetes that neither judges them for wanting to get pregnant nor scares them out of it. This engaging - and funny - book full of myth-busting accounts of women who have been there tells potential moms that yes there is hard work involved in a healthy pregnancy with diabetes but reminds us of the joys all that hard work can bring."-Michelle Kowalski, dlife.com

"Cheryl Alkon has given me what I wish I had 14 years ago when a dear friend with diabetes became pregnant: a book filled with wisdom and wit to reassure me that both Mom-to-be and Baby could stay healthy and happy for years to come." - Kristen De Deyn Kirk, editor, MyTidewaterMoms.com

"The book is amazing. Know that Cheryl's book covers everything. In detail. And the amount of women she interviewed really assists in making it personal and meaningful."-Emily Berthold, editor, bumbeta.blogspot.com

"Diagnosed with type 1 diabetes as a child, people told me that having would be difficult at best. But now, seven months pregnant with my first child, I realize that more success stories need to be told. Cheryl's book is the resource of hope, inspiration, and information that all women with type 1 diabetes need to read."-Kerri Morrone Sparling, sixuntilnine.com

"A valuable resource for diabetic women who wish to have a baby. Alkon's writing style makes the book interesting and easy to follow There is a wealth of information and tips for women to follow and most women with diabetes wishing to get pregnant or who are already pregnant will find the book beneficial. "-Caphis Consumer Connection (Kerri Sparling sixuntilnine.com 20100503) --Emily Berthold, editor, bumbeta.blogspot.com
