The negatives I have about the book is that it might be a little bit too much do whatever you want to do. When it talks about breast feeding, it's more about what works for you, but the authors never stress the benefits of breastfeeding or how even a few months is better than nothing at all. With the pain medicine during labor, the authors give a quick chart of pros and cons of them, but I would have liked them to give more information on that topic.
All in all, I was glad I bought the book because it helped me reduce anxiety and trust that I will have supportive people around me to help me through the delivery.
