Reviewed in the United States on May 3, 2018
Overall, I really liked the first ⅔ of this book. It has a lot of great, factual information about your first and second trimesters that help you make informed decisions. I’m someone who loves numbers and data so I really enjoyed the facts and figures. However I had some issues with the last part, which focuses on the 3rd trimester. I have unfortunately experienced a late term pregnancy loss so I found her advice on pushing back when your doctor wants to schedule an induction or questioning fetal monitoring results unsympathetic to those of us who unfortunately haven’t had healthy pregnancies. For anyone who has lost a baby, I think many would want any medical intervention needed to get that baby here safely. If you’ve had healthy pregnancies or this is is your first pregnancy and things seem normal, I think this book is awesome! For those of you who are having a more complicated journey to motherhood, I would skip the last part and take the rest with a grain of salt.
