I'm an OB/GYN nurse working in a doctor's office. I wish every one of our patients would buy a copy of this book. It covers about 95% of the questions that women call us with every day. I have read lots of pregnancy books written for mothers, and this is by far the best. It explains in layman's terms why certain tests are needed, and is one of the very few books I've read that doesn't make mothers feel guilty if they cannot or do not breast feed. This is perfect for pregnant women of any age, and certainly doesn't focus just on older mothers. I can't say enough good things about this book. My only complaint is that there is no address listed for Dr. Glades so that I could write and tell him how much I loved this book.
