Evidently, there's more to getting pregnant than this reviewer thought. Now you must prepare at least one month before you spend that romantic evening with your husband by eating properly, exercising, and avoiding harmful substances like alcohol and tobacco (skip the champagne and chocolate that night). This set of tape and workbook is full of good information on getting in shape for pregnancy and is surprisingly interesting to watch, considering that nutritional advice is not always visually exciting. Lots of great tips about maintaining a good weight, getting motivated to exercise regularly, and even improving the potential father-to-be's fertility make this package useful to women looking to increase the odds of conception and a healthy pregnancy. One quibble: the oversized box and booklet are going to make this hard to stick on a library video shelf without some major cutting and pasting.AEllen Druda, Half Hollow Hills Community Lib., Dix Hills, NY

... seen through the eyes of a pregnant mom who also happens to be a registered dietitian and exercise physiologist. What better way to get the best information. . . I would recommend Before Your Pregnancy to pre-pregnancy patients, and it would be on my 'top 5 recommended' list. I also think this would be of value to infertility patients. -- Leona A. Goodman, R.N., Lead R.N. Ob/Gyn, Patient Educational Coordinator & Lactation Educator
A great resource for those contemplating a trip down 'Family Way'. -- Ed Blonz, Ph.D., Nutritional scientist, author of Your Personal Nutritionist book series
Before Your Pregnancy delivers expert advice on nutrition and exercise requirements, but also focuses on how to achieve a healthy lifestyle. Many physicians may be time limited to counsel patients on such issues involving pre-pregnancy care. This is where Before Your Pregnancy can step in. The information given is exquisite. -- Serdar H. Ural, M.D. Ob/Gyn Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine
Having recently experienced pregnancy, motherhood gives Amy a great deal of empathy toward the viewer. Her presentation and personal experience along with the strong knowledge base make it very valuable. -- Paul A. Czubryt, M.S., National Exercise Program Manager, Digital Equipment Corp./Health Fitness Corp.
I highly recommend Before Your Pregnancy to my patients as well as to other physicians seeking to strengthen their nutrition and exercise knowledge. A pleasure to review. . . Amy has a nice personal touch in the video which makes the information about to be imparted very believable and inviting to the prospective mother. ...The information booklet is a comprehensive, user friendly compliment to the video. ...[nutrition section]... within ACOG and AMA guidelines and are made easy to understand with excellent recipes and examples...very nicely done. ...[exercise section] was done with a style and simplicity that invites the watcher to put on their sneaker and start exercising. The video makes it look easy, and that's an excellent notion to impart to reproduction age women. -- Lisa Mazzullo, M.D. Ob/Gyn, Clinical Instructor, Northwestern University Medical School
I really enjoyed reading and watching Before Your Pregnancy. I think Ob/Gyns should offer this to those clients who do plan on pregnancy in the future. -- Melissa Leasure, R.N., B.S.N., Mother of twins!
The concept, the content, layout, graphics everything is great! The question/answer format keeps the viewer interested and answers the major questions of mothers- and fathers-to-be. Way to go incorporating DAD!. . . I would recommend this to friends, clients, and colleagues. This video will be in great demand especially now with such focus on the importance of proper nutrition before pregnancy what great timing! -- Heather Hedrick, M.S., R.D., Registered Dietitian & Exercise Physiologist

I was impressed that the author is both a registered dietician and educated and experienced in exercise physiology. She knows her stuff, and that is very apparent in the practical guide described in the booklet. She explains what each partner should do in layman's language. I also liked the accompanying video tape, which is something couples can view periodically for motivation and to keep them on track.
This is a great book/video and I highly recommend it to anyone who is considering having a child, or who has had difficulty in getting or maintaining a pregnancy.
