I have been an ER nurse for 6 years and am currently a Family Nurse Practitioner student at Loyola University in Chicago. For our graduate childbearing and midwifery class, we had to select a book to read about pregnancy. Not having any children of my own (and not planning to for quite some time), I was not looking forward to this assignment. However, the humorous and matter-of-fact approach of this book made it an easy and entertaining read. I have seen many patients, friends, and my sister experience many of the same new mommy scenarios presented in this book - which usually result in panicked late- night "call-the-family-nurse" consults. This book offers great lay person expainations for common medical and emotional questions about the scary journey of pregnancy and being a new mom from a great resource- another mom. More importantly, it offers reassurance that there is no such thing as a perfect mom. I will keep this book in my tool box for future friends and patients preparing for a baby or who need some humor and encouragement about the daily stresses of Mommyhood.

A very informative book focusing on information that other books leave out about things people forget to mention to expectant and new mothers. It is a page turner with funny stories that will make you laugh out loud. I would be proud to gift it to anyone I know! This book has become my number one gift for all the future baby shower's I attend.
