Editorial Reviews

Parents Magaine - Editorial Review
“Unlike other pregnancy books, Expecting 411 gives moms-to-be the latest medical advice with a lighthearted girlfriend-to-girlfriend tone and accessible format. Dr. Hakakha and Dr. Brown—young moms themselves who offer both an obstetrician’s and a pediatrician’s perspective—answer all the questions that couples might be too embarrassed to ask, and empowers them with comprehensive information in a non-alarmist way.”
RN/OB phone nurse - Nancy Edleman
“This is an impressive wealth of knowledge in a very readable, up-to-date style. This book answers all your questions clearly and precisely. It probably answers questions you haven’t even thought about yet! I see myself using this as a reference in my role as an advice nurse.”
MD - Paul Offit
“Clinicians talk endlessly about providing information that empowers parents to make the best decisions for their children. But the truth is few have the skills to do it. Dr. Ari Brown is one of a rare breed who has that gift.”
MD, FACOG - Lawrence Platt
“Finally, a book for pregnant women and their families that’s accurate and informative without being stuffy or alarmist: hard to believe it’s written by doctors, but it is — and they’ve done a great job. It’s on target and will even make you laugh out loud at times (appropriately, though . . . )!”
