This is a book that EVERY pregnant woman, man or women who are planning to get pregnant needs to own. This will also make a great baby shower gift. All-in-all, this is one of the best pregnancy books out there.
--Momsword.orgI learned a lot from this book, and laughed quite a bit, too.

"I found Hands Off My Belly! to be a humorous and informative book that dispels many myths and superstitions in North American culture as well as other cultures around the world - I have read a couple of other popular pregnancy books and although they were also very informative I did not enjoy them very much as they reminded me of reading textbooks from my University days. Hands Off My Belly! provided the right balance of information, anecdotes and humour and I found it hard to put the book down. I thoroughly enjoyed reading Hands Off My Belly! and recommend it to anyone trying to conceive and those already expecting." -- 4 Fabulous Families blog, November 7, 2009 "Laughter being the best medicine, Tassone and Landherr included some downright hilarious examples which provide a good belly laugh, yet also alleviate the sometimes irrational fears which can plague new moms-to-be." --Monsters and Critics.com, November 20, 2009
