  • Love this. Helpful and informative without any unnecessary fear mongering or condescension that I find in a lot of other parenting books. Exactly what I was looking for! Aug 01, 2019

  • This is a very medical forward approach to pregnancy which I love as a healthcare professional but lacks any soul in the book itself Jul 17, 2019

  • Very informative, detailed information on each week of pregnancy throughout early postpartum. Even has sections for partner information and support. I’m fact and science driven and this exactly that. Apr 15, 2019

  • Bought this as one of my first baby books. Tons of helpful information. Would recommend getting this if it is your first pregnancy. Mar 13, 2019

    It's ok, but that's about it. Maybe I'm biased as I got it my 2nd pregnancy and already knew most of the info? Maybe it's more useful for a first-time mom. Sep 19, 2018

    Enjoyed reading this book throughout pregnancy. It was easy to read and understand; it didn’t make pregnancy and birth seem scary. There was also helpful newborn info. Jun 07, 2018

    • Olney, Maryland

    Love this informative book that sticks to facts and information rather than anecdotal experiences like some parenting books. Filled with helpful factual info! Apr 13, 2018

  • I wasn’t a huge fan of this bland, boring book. Feb 11, 2018

  • lots of information, some of it I had already read from online research, but still had some good stuff Jan 15, 2018

  • As a first time mom this book has been so informative and concise! Excellent week by week baby updates as well as beneficial information regarding the birthing process and bringing baby home! Dec 20, 2017

  • No-nonsense guide to what to expect throughout your pregnancy. Written in a practical manner and keeps momma's physical and emotional health top of mind. Oct 19, 2017

    This helped me understand what to expect and what was going on. Aug 24, 2017

  • This book is great for quick references! So much detail on pretty much everything you want to know! A bit much to sit down and read but I love reaching for it with specific questions in mind! Mar 14, 2017

  • This book was great throughout my whole pregnancy! Very educational! Feb 27, 2017

  • My husband got me this book when we find out I was pregnant. I like how it tells you month by month how your body and baby are changing. Very informative. I liked it a lot. Jan 27, 2017

  • One of the first books we bought, the week-by-week explanation of what is happening with your pregnancy is super helpful. Also has great lists of questions to ask your OB, foods to eat, etc! Jan 04, 2017

  • This is a great reference book to have on hand during pregnancy. FYI: pregnancy is the focus here - it does not go in depth about labor and delivery/comfort measures etc. Oct 08, 2016

    Great pregnancy guide Apr 29, 2015

  • I just trust Mayo, always have. The book is well organized, provides good basic information. It's not encyclopedic or exhaustively thorough, but it provides enough basic info to keep you afloat. Feb 17, 2015
