I absolutely loved this book. I have a few other books on general pregnancy and none of them really address vegetarianism or veganism. This book fills in the gaps. There are separate chapters for some of the more important nutrients that you need while pregnant. I love that the author explains why you need that particular nutrient and what's happening in your body that spawns an increased need for it. Then it goes into what foods you can get those things from naturally and there's a really helpful list at the end of each chapter that gives you some ideas of how to easily add a little bit of this or that to your food. Sometimes it's things like nutritional yeast or kelp flakes that you can just sprinkle on your food for a bit of extra nutrition.

There is some good information on how to deal with people who might have issue with you being vegan while pregnant. There are some great tips on how to respond to some of the comments you might get and what information you might want to share with people who are saying certain things. The end of the book even has some recipes, which could really be helpful if you're unsure of how to eat now that you're pregnant. I haven't made any of them, but I did look through them. All of the recipes look fairly simple and quick, which is a bonus when you're tired and you need to eat and don't really feel like making food.

I really can't recommend this book enough. If you're vegan or even just vegetarian, pregnant or thinking about becoming pregnant, you should definitely pick this up.

If you are going Vegan for your pregnancy, then this book will work for you.
However, if you are already vegan, then this book is obvious and redundant of everything you already know and practice daily.
Most of the book is about being vegan and what you should eat, pregnant or not. Then there are less than 80 pages on actually being pregnant, but not necessarily vegan and pregnant. The only reason I would recommend this book, would be for anyone who is vegan and pregnant, but getting judged by family and friends who don't understand that you and your baby could possibly be safe in your pregnancy. This book is for them to show them that being vegan is perfectly safe for everyone

I bought this book shortly after finding out I was pregnant (as well as a few others). I've been a vegan for over five years, so I didn't expect to find too much new information but rather to use this book as a resource for vegan pregnancy-specific nutritional information. Some sections seem to be more geared to the newly vegan or those who want to better understand the vegan diet (ex. the reasons for going vegan and the section about finding vegan food at the supermarket).

As for nutritional information, this book has lots of great suggestions for getting each nutrient that is especially important for vegans during pregnancy (protein, iron, zinc, vitamin b12, folate, calcium, vitamin D, DHA, etc.). There is also lots of good information on staying healthy during pregnancy, including food safety specifically for vegans, food safety for vegans who live with non-vegans and tips on camping/hiking while pregnant.

There was also a lot of general pregnancy information, although it's not nearly as detailed as the week-by-week type pregnancy books. I would recommend getting at least one other pregnancy book in addition to this one if you want week-by-week information or extra information about all the different body changes during pregnancy.

The last 100 pages or so has recipes, but I haven't tried any of them yet. This is mostly because I often cook without recipes and when I do use recipes, I have a large collection of vegan cookbooks to choose from. The recipes seem about on-par with how healthy the food I normally prepare is (lots of variety of grains, beans, veggies, fruit). However, I tend to use less oil than some of these recipes call for (ex. the Pad Thai recipe that "serves 4" calls for 1/4 cup of oil to fry a pound of tofu...

Great book but I felt it was written more for someone who wasn't already vegan. I was looking for more information but as a vegan of many years it didn't include anything I didn't know already, and I wasn't looking for recipes.

This book guides you through ALL your pregnancy with amazing information. Fully loaded with nutrition tips, exercise, and month by month questions that arise during pregnancy and labor. Also has really good recipes :) I really appreciated the nutritional content of the book, so important when there are not many books on the market that talk about vegan nutrition for pregnant women. Thumbs up for The Everything Vegan Pregnancy Book!

This book is basically Veganism 101 and Pregnancy 101 just kind of slapped together. Don't get me wrong, there's some great basic information if you have literally never researched either of these topics before, but for a book titled "The EVERYTHING Vegan Pregnancy Book," you'd think it would be a little more...extensive.

To begin with, it's a thick book, but the entire second half is recipes. (Isn't that what cookbooks are for?) The sections to do with veganism, and those to do with pregnancy are entirely separate. There's no blending of the topics to hit the concerns of a pregnant vegan. If you read a different book on each, you get the same information. The only additional information is a couple pages on how to handle social situations.

The only person this book could benefit is someone who is transitioning to veganism for the very first time while pregnant, which just sounds like the worst idea in the world to me! Don't get me wrong, I've been vegan over a decade, and love nothing more than people going vegan. But if you are pregnant, have no idea how to be vegan, and do not have the guidance of a seasoned vegan veteran or nutritionist, so must rely on a book for information, you are building a recipe for disaster!
