ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Mayo Clinic took root in farm fields near Rochester, Minn., in the late 1800s. It grew from the medical practice of a country doctor, William Worrall Mayo, and the partnership of his two sons, William J. and Charles H. Mayo – affectionately known as Dr. Will and Dr. Charlie.

The brothers' innovative ideas and tireless work in learning and creating new surgical techniques attracted international attention. Physicians from around the world came to watch the Mayo brothers perform surgery.

The Mayo brothers invited other doctors to join them, forming teams of medical experts. Today, Mayo Clinic--one of the world’s oldest and largest multispecialty group practices--comprises more than 45,000 physicians, scientists, nurses and other staff at its three locations in Rochester, Minn., Jacksonville, Fla., and Scottsdale, Ariz., and its regional community-based health care practices.

    Best Pregnancy Book Out There

    I am a first-time expectant mommy. I borrowed a few other pregnancy books from some girlfriends when I found out I was pregnant and they all scared the *bleep* out of me - provoking more anxiety than helping with curiosity and questions (What to Expect When Expecting was one of the most anxiety producing for me). The Mayo book, however, was exactly what I needed and the only one I bought for myself. It gives you a good preview of what to expect in each week/group of weeks/trimester, and is a comprehensive reference for questions, concerns or curiosities you may have. One of my favorite things about it is that I can read about the development of the baby and an explanation of what's going on with my body at each stage of my pregnancy. It also has info for labor, birthing, breast feeding, post-partum etc. Every time I have had a question about anything having to do with my pregnancy, whether it be about what is going on with my body to what I shouldn't eat, to what the fetus looks like at my stage, this book had it. I love the pics it shows of what the fetus/baby looks like at each stage. Further and most importantly, the information is straight up and factual and doesn't scare me - even actually provided comfort in many situations when something was worrying me (light cramping in first trimester, slight discharge, moodiness, fatigue, dizziness, etc. all normal (phew)). A great reference - I would definitely recommend it to my fellow preggies - especially first timers like me.

    Good Resource

    I am a Physician Assistant going through my first pregnancy. I bought this book as a good resource off the suggestion of reviews I had read. This is a great book with easy to read information and I would definitely recommend it.

    Very informative and precise - from a Doctor's view

    Actually I was looking for a book which should not be discussing the risks of pregnancy and other risks in the first hand,like how a doctor will be discussing.When you go to a doctor he is not going to tell you some abdomen pain you will have in your 6th month things or some bloody show in your 8th month and so on right away!I want some things to be explained from medical point of view and I bought this book.First it explains how pregnancy happens,then the stages and what happens weekly,then childbirth,new baby and only then it discusses some emergency situations,etc.This book was written in a positive way and will not panic first-time moms.This is was I wanted a book to me.I browsed thru like 6-7 pregnancy books and this one impressed me and was just like I wished to be!I will keep this with me and will recommend for first-time moms.Pregnancy is a happy journey and not a scary one,so reading this book explaing what really happens inside your body.Another thing is it does not advice u to do some stupid things when u are in an emergency and moreover it had some useful section after each chapter which tells u to go the doctor imm. or the next time and does not tell u to try some suggestions like in some other books.

    Informative

    As a first time mom, I found this book to be very helpful, though a little more 'sterile' than I would have hoped. It did include a lot of helpful information, including an index near the end of the book listing potential symptoms, aches/pains, etc. and what trimester one would expect them to happen. I enjoyed this book WAY more than 'What To Expect...' - which was, in my opinion, a little scary.

    If you're only going to buy one book on pregnancy - make this the one.
    First time Mom, and I was tired of trolling through the true and false information all over the web. So I decided to invest in a couple reputable pregnancy books. This is the only book that I read cover to cover. It was the best by far. I like how the first part is broken down by weeks. It also has a wonderful linked TOC and index. This make for quick reference to certain questions that would arise - e.g. symptoms.

    Good reference - easy to read

    So, admittedly, I haven't read the whole thing, but so far it has been very informative and simple without making me feel stupid. I like the beginning basic information, which then leads into week by week details. It also has a great section on common concerns and questions which I flip to as needed. I was impressed that it wasn't just about pregnancy, but also about the newborn stage. So far it is great. It is the only book I bought (because I heard some horror stories about What to Expect...)
