More than 900 tips that 60 doctors who are also mothers use during their own pregnancies and births, by Rallie McAllister, M.D., MPH and Jennifer Bright Reich. I think the 900 tips speak for themselves, but I love that these guides use real doctors who are also real moms. Dr. McAllister is a syndicated columnist and a mom of three herself, but she also brings other mom doctors into the mix. The book is funny and practical and debunks myths about stretch marks, reveals the truth about morning sickness, insight into the bottle vs. breastfeeding debate, what to know about C-sections and how to deal with a new baby! Who doesn't need that?
