I found the book to be very helpful. She and I have referred to is numerous times already in preparation for the birth. I plan to take it into the labor room with me.
Very clear illustrations, specially marked "cheat sheets" for quick reference.
The book was recommended in several pregnancy publications from different sources.
My copy is already looking a bit shop-worn, and I expect it to be all but tattered by the time the baby is delivered.
