This book was recommended by my doctor for it's accuracy, and updated information. This being my first child, it has been very helpful to have a book that is backed by my doctor. The information is very valuable, and I use it daily as a resource. I highly recommend this book.

This book is a MUST read! This is my first child and I feel calm and prepared (well, knowledgeable at least) going into childbirth, and that's priceless. I also dog-eared some pages to keep as reference throught the process.

Can't put this book down...love this book! It doesn't make you feel dumb for being a 1st time mom-to be. Also like how the book gives you suggestion questions to ask yourself and those involved in your big adventure. Just enough medical information...some books you need a PhD to be able to read, this book is great for an everyday women. Would highly recommend it!

I am expecting my first child and as an attorney, I have a research-based approach to learning. I found this book to be extremely informative and easy to read. I have read certain sections over and over and I believe I learn something new each time. I would highly recommend this book.
