Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I read this book in my 1st trimester and it is very detailed and informative on what to expect for the rest of the pregnancy. Other than explaining the technical aspect of preganancy (like about what size your baby is at any point) , it tells you about the overview as well, such as government financial aid, structure of pregnancy management in hospitals, which is applicable to Australia and New Zealand. As this is my first pregnancy, I find this book helpful in making informed decisions on issues, e.g home birth versus hosptal birth, various test options. This book has been great for me.
