The information on drug dosage, possible adverse effects, and recommendations for usage compiled by a pharmacist and nutritionist in this large volume seems accurate and complete; furthermore, it is provided in easy-to-understand terms. But this information is usually supplied by a woman's physician. The volume's most useful features are the tables in the back, which include food items recommended or not recommended during pregnancy, special diets for pregnancy and lactation, food sources of nutrients, and trade names for common drugs and vitamin supplements. The Physician's Desk Reference is the standard reference for this type of material, but it includes all drugs and human interactions, not just those associated with pregnancy. Recommmended as a supplemental reference in extensive health science collections.-- Eleanor Maass, Maass Assocs., New Milford, Pa.
