But if you do buy this book, do it at the very start of pregnancy. I bought it towards the end of the first trimester and a lot of the stuff I read was old news to me since I had been reading about pregnancy + plant-based foods for weeks before hand.
It was easy and fun to read; I finished it in an evening. It's encouraging without being preachy; it's friendly and inspiring. I'm on my second vegan pregnancy and I found this book useful and fun!
My big issue with the book is the tone- it's sarcastic where it doesn't need to be, and even condescending here and there; the tone felt immature. I'd rather not be learning about having a baby from my past 16 year old group of friends. I'm all for immaturity in the right setting, I'd just rather live without it from a pregnancy guide book.
Also, I was looking for a bit more substance. The book seems to mention a lot of things, but that's it. A quick mention or reference isn't descriptive or informative. Instead I feel like I got a list of all these things I need to go find other books to explain. Sure you can't go over everything in a book, but at least pick a couple so my time isn't wasted.
The biggest reason why I'm only giving two stars is because I actually learned more about having a healthy vegan pregnancy from mainstream meat-eating-drug-pumping books everyone uses- they generally have a chapter devoted to alternative pregnancies, or sometimes just a page!- and it was still more helpful then this book. Just my two cents- if it works for you, then I'm happy you found a book you can use.
i became a huge fan of sayward several months ago when i discovered her blog, bonzai aphrodite, and i couldn't wait to get this book! i love it as much as i was hoping! i have a 10 month old boy & i was able to take a lot of good things from it even though i'm not pregnant. i look forward to my next pregnancy, because i feel it will be so helpful to have the information she has shared. thank you so much sayward, i will buy this for every pregnant person i can!

Poorly written--was it the work of a tween? Author seems to misunderstand certain basics which makes taking her(him) seriously impossible. keep trying!Published 1 month ago by Amazon Customer

Encouraging and insightful, but I wish there was a little more medical related material- especially for a person like me just going into veganism.Published on June 13, 2014 by Chelsea Wolfington
