    An Honest and Straightforward Book about becoming parents

    This book is amazing! It seems so different from other books about pregnancy. The writers approach the subject in a very honest, non-judgmental and open manner that is refreshing. It's also great to read all of the different ways people have experienced pregnancy and parenting.

    Great for first time moms

    I received this book as a gift and loved it so much I bought it for other pregnant friends. It's a great book for first time moms for pregnancy through the first year. I appreciated the fact that it covered many different options and choices. Most books have some method or technique they are pushing, this one did not. It made me not seem so crazy for choosing cloth diapers, or feel bad for choosing a daycare. My one complaint is that it would frequently reference another section of the book so you were frequently flipping back and forth. Overall it was my favorite pregnancy book.

    Not your run-of-the-mill pregnancy guide!

    I love this book! Unlike all the other pregnancy books I've purchased, this was the most straightforward and non-condescending. Because of the authors' divergent perspectives on all aspects of pregnancy, childbirth, and baby care, the book provides choices rather than dictates hard and fast rules. There is clearly no agenda they are pushing, as I have found with so many other pregnancy books. I am a first-time mom, and this is my go-to guide.

    Honest, Well Written & Easy to Relate

    I needed a reference guide so I could understand my pregnancy, but after reviewing the classic standby, What to expect when you're expecting, I was quickly turned off. It was a scary medical journal. I am so glad I found From The Hips. It's current, very honest and makes me feel normal. I loved reading the countless stories from other mothers to be. It was very well organized and a joy to read. I highly recommend it. It tells you everything you need to know from pregnancy to birth to raising baby. Wonderful.
