Editorial Reviews

American Reference Books Annual - Ralph Lee Scott
This beautifully illustrated guide to pregnancy will help expectant parents know what to expect from the experience, from preconception through the first several months after birth. The work is written in an easy-to-understand style that will especially appeal to first-time parents. The chapters are arranged so that they chronologically reflect the pregnancy... The title is written by and contributed to by a wide range of medical doctors and obstetricians in a style that will appeal to a wide range of users. It is a title that can be read from cover to cover or used as a reference by using the comprehensive index. Throughout the well-written text are sidebars with relevant information, charts and diagrams, and color photographs. This work will answer many questions that expectant parents will have and will ease their minds as well.... Highly recommended for public and consumer health library collections.
Atlanta Parent - Kate Parrott
What sets this prenatal manual apart from the plethora of others on the market is the easy-to-understand information (including everything from suggested exercise routines to delivery comparisons to complications women may encounter during delivery), along with full-color photographs. Real women are featured throughout the 480 pages (there are some illustrations, too), showing everything from birthing to breastfeeding.
