    My favorite pregnancy book!

    I picked this one up on a whim, wanting something with a lot of content but not so dry as that other "what to expect..." book. The authors are an OB and a pediatrician so you get some unique info from the experts, both before and after delivery. There's a ton of great information that even I (who've read entirely too many of these things) didn't know. Best of all, the style is casual and engaging, not boring and dry. Sidenote: they encourage you to email the authors if you have questions or comments. Well, I did and guess what? I got a personal reply within a few days! I bought the other books in this series too and they're just as wonderful. Highly recommend for ANY mom, new or otherwise (I'm personally trying for #2)

    I was looking for a book with alot of helpful information.

    I picked out 3 that i thought would teach me about my pregnancy. The cover of the book is what got me to read the sample. I already learned alot from reading the sample book. I do recommend this book to every couple that is having their first baby.

    My doctor gave me this book to read and I found it very informative. It is easy to read and it is organized so you can locate facts such as which meds are safe, testing and food info very easy. It was great to have handy.
