I had been practicing Ashtanga Mysore style for a little less than a year when I read this book. It is inspirational, informative, and nonjudgmental. In the book introduction, Desai and Wise mention that their intention was "to create something that shows that when it comes to pregnancy, childbirth, and mothering there is no right or wrong way to do things. For this reason there are no definitive answers here [in the book], only information, tips, suggestions, examples, and most importantly, the experience of others to draw from." Well, I think they did excellent.
The book is helpful not only for expecting (or current) mothers. It actually has good information for women in general. For example, it has good insight on the relationship between the bandhas and menstruation, and other women's topics such as menopause, infertility, amenorrhea, etc.
In a nutshell, I expect this book to be a reference for years to come as I continue my practice and (maybe) become a mother.
