    Excellent Resource

    Very nice to read a concise overview of the pregnancy without a lot of chit-chat and annecdotes. I don't have a lot of time and I needed some information quickly. It is a very fast read. Dr. Donaldson writes in a very matter-of-fact way which helps me be more informed about myself and my pregnancy.

    A Doctors Guide to Pregnancy

    The content of the book is very easy to follow. Patients will benefit from the information that is available from a Dr stand point. I have three children and wish the book was available when I was pregnant. This is a great book for pregnant mothers and fathers. Lisa Willbur

    The best, most understandable knowledge about pregnancy I've ever read!

    Dr. Rachel Donaldson has a gift for being able to explain complex anatomy and gynecological issues so that these subjects can be comprehended in a very useful way. This book is a very easy to reference book that is written in a logical and well organized way. Issues and concerns can easily be found by referring to the contents/and/or index pages. Dr. Donaldson's use of pictures and diagrams make her counsel and instruction even more understandable.

    If all of us would have had this gentle unfolding,and support, of facts available to us when we were first pregnant or contemplating starting a family, I believe a lot of fears and questions would have been calmed and addressed. This is the best book I have read that explains things in a way that an average, non-medical, pregnant patient and her spouse or significant other can understand.

    I had the sense that a wise counselor had guided me through this book, and that she was my personal advocate to help me understand the material contained within.

    A Review from a Nurse's Perspective

    This is an excellent resource. This book is written by a physician's perspective, yet easy for a lay person to understand and apply the principles. Every stage of pregnancy- pre, peri and post pregnancy is covered in depth. Dr Donaldson answers some of the issues/concerns women are anxious to discuss. I wish this book was available to me years ago during my pregnancies. I am a nurse and recommend this book to any woman newly pregnant and those considering having children. This is an awesome gift. Great job Dr. Donaldson (Yankama). Kathy Andrews, RN, MSN
