Rated 4 out of 5 by from A very informative book! There is a lot of great information in this book that helped me understand the different stages of my pregnancy and helped me prepare to be a first-time mom. Many pregnancy-related symptoms/conditions are mentioned, and good information is given on how to cope with them, in addition to what type of exercise is recommended each week. The author does mention some more rare conditions that can cause unnecessary stress when reading through those parts of the book, but if they do not apply to you, just skip over them. While this book makes reference to various sources for support during pregnancy, it is important to note that they are US-based and therefore not very useful for people living outside of the U.S. Still, it is an informative, well-written book that is a must-read for soon-to-be moms.

Editorial Reviews

Mid-Ohio Valley Parent, January 2012 “This has been a great resource for moms-to-be throughout the years and this latest edition is no exception!”, 1/12/12 “This excellent book…certainly does make the process from pregnancy to birth (and for the first month or so afterwards) much easier to cope with and understand…The sensitivity and care with which Curtis and Schuler present all information—positive, negative or neutral—remain hallmarks of this fact-packed and thick oversize paperback…Reading it provides much of the assurance of a knowledgeable 24-hour-a-day companion who can take you through the many vicissitudes of pregnancy with a firm and knowing hand. Even women who have been pregnant before will benefit from the information here—and those in their first pregnancies will find the book invaluable.” Sacramento Book Review, February 2012 “Most women will find that this book contains everything they need for a healthy pregnancy.”Bookviews blog, March 2012 “As comprehensive a body of information about pregnancy as you will find anywhere.”
