repetition and annoying voice

most of the information is repeated so many times that it becomes annoying and the voice is just too much, I cant hear more than 10 minutes at a time.

Good for listening and a lot of useful info

when given info, at the end of the chapter, also conclude the important info. It is good for when I'm doing something while listening might miss here and there. The information I learnt was super useful, and also I think it is good to read even when you are planing to get pregnant. I listened to the book when I'm around 3 months, kinda feel like I was late, if I read this book earlier, I might not make certain mistakes. Anyway, highly recommend :)

The author writes as though we are children

The writing and reading style is overly cutesy makes me cringe. I can't listen to it any more. The author writes and reads as though the readers/listeners are children. For example, the experience of morning sickness is constantly referred to as "a case of the queezies" and "tummy troubles". I'm a grown woman and just because I'm pregnant does not mean that I've lost my ability to understand nausea and anatomical terms like stomach.
Additionally, as a listening experience, the Q&A sections are hard to navigate. Much of it is not be relevant to each person. It requires constant fast forwarding and you never know what questions are next. The excerpts for male partners are sparse and patronizing (which is hilarious). It is written with the unsympathetic, uninvolved, and clueless stereotype of a male in mind. These also assume there is a male partner or Daddy. Some folks are going at it alone and some folks are not partnered with males.

least helpful book on pregnancy

After becoming pregnant I reached for this book as if it were the bible of pregnancy. It's the most common known and I assumed for a good reason. This book filled me with fear and uncertainty within the first 15 min of reading. Definitely wouldn't recommend. There are so many wonderful pregnancy books available. From the hips being my most favorites and easily digestible.

Great resource...with some caveats

I would not recommend getting this book as an audio book. There's just TOO much content and there's no value add from listening. In fact, you'll be able to skim through it and only focus on what's relavent to you with a hard copy.

There's a lot here, which is why this book is still so popular. There's some things that they did surprisingly well, like their coverage of post partum health for mom - especially mental health.

But there's a number of areas where the advice they give is too conservative for my taste. For example, there was a section on food where they cautioned against the health food aisle because there haven't been studies on things like the safety of herbal teas or flax seed. I don't recall them spending ANY time discussing why there's a natural child birth movement. There was no discussion regarding the negative consequences of epidurals, which made me scratch my head since she literally cautioned against too much mint tea. I'm not against epidurals, I believe to each their own, but understanding why some people are concerned is helpful and important information. I also don't recall much discussion on the rising popularity of doulas. There were pieces here regarding exercise that made me too nervous to continue many of my regular activities, which my doctor ultimately didn't agree with.

The book also chooses to cover SO much which means that there's not a lot of depth in a lot of areas. Moreover, there's not a lot of WHY. If understanding the logic, numbers and research is important to you, I strongly suggest reading Expecting Better by Emily Oster. Surprisingly this book actually provided more info on the labor and delivery process than this one.

All in all this is a good resource, but please don't let it be your only one!

Narration Grating, Tone Somewhat Condescending

I know this is supposed to be the pregnancy bible, but I am not a fan.

I gave it overall 3 stars because the information is there, but I was really not a fan of the narration. I usually can listen to audiobooks for hours while I clean, take walks, commute etc, but the author's voice has a tone to it that would cause my ears to hurt. If I listened too long (in my case about an hour), I started getting a headache. The author is not the only narrator. There was a woman who seemed to pipe in with the more science type passages. I MUCH preferred her voice.

I also felt like the author was condescending but trying to hide it with obnoxious, cutesy expressions and puns. The condescending tone is in the language, but I think having the author read the book herself made it more obvious. For a pregnancy bible, I would like the information without the undertones of "this is what you should do if I were you".

I listened to this book because my husband and I are preparing to have children. I should note that I'm also a fan of the Great Courses and listened to the book Scientific Secrets for Raising Kids Who Thrive. In that book, some interesting pregnancy information was provided, and I wanted to get more scientific information specifically targeted to pregnancy. Since this is the pregnancy bible, this is where I started. I would say the book is science-lite mixed in with those infantile expressions (I plan on having an infant, that doesn't mean I want to be talked to like an infant) and suggestions. I suspect there has been criticism in the past because there were several times when the author made statements at the beginning amounting to "even if you are from (insert nontraditional background or role here) this book is still for you".

I'm disappointed because I was hoping for something that provided the facts and information without an agenda. I will say that compared to other books, the agenda is not as in your face, but the agenda while more subtle is still there. (Not going to lie, I wish there were a Great Courses version of this...)

I was happy to encounter more modern day topics such as the low carb (keto) diet, paleo, and raw food diets as well as things like e-cigarettes discussed (even though none of them apply to me). They seemed to be trying to address modern issues that are coming up.

Basic

I can see why this is a cult classic for new parents. The breadth of coverage is exhaustive, perhaps a bit much. Rather than 15+ hours of audio this really could be condensed down to one hour of critical information and 14 hours of common sense. If you’re the type of person who lacks common sense or find stating the obvious reassuring, then I would recommend this book. Otherwise if you have a good head on your shoulders I would find another book. Beyond what is covered, some of the ideas are beyond antiquated and sexist. Putting on make up when your husband goes to work is indeed one of the recommendations in this book. Further, in an effort to be funny, the book implants a variety of insecurities that don’t need to be there. I hope we’re all evolved enough to not have simple hangups after conceiving life.

My Doctor Told Me To Not Read This Book

Apparently it is inaccurate medically, so he asked me not to read this book. He suggested 'Up the Duff' as a medically accurate book.

Content not suitable for an audiobook

The Positive:
-A very extensive and detailed list of the things a woman might face during her pregnancy.

The Negative:
-Way too much repetition, especially in some sections. If it was a book it would be easy to skip but being an audiobook makes skipping very difficult without risking losing some critical info. As a result, you can easily end up listening to 20 minutes of something that could have been explained in just 2.
-Bad narration, makes me feel that she was addressing it to a baby.
-No need to address parts of the book to dads if the only thing mentioned every time is: "Be there to support her"

Pharma influence

The narrator has a very annoying voice. There’s an entire chapter recommending psychiatric “help” while pregnant which means feeding antidepressants to yourself and your unborn baby, which causes permanent damage in both mother and baby. The side effects of antidepressants or other psychiatric “solutions” are not mentioned in the book at all. Beware of BAD life endangering advice!

Informative But Not Reference Based

The author uses a lot of "Some Doctors" and "a study" and "Should", not a lot of references as to which ones. Also, the book is riddled with cliches that would make your middle school teacher flunk your paper. Overall a better paperback than an audio book.

not all authors should be narrators

I couldn't finish it. The narration was so mind-numbing that my pregnant brain always shut down and it lulled me to sleep. The book is great, but the audiobook is not one I can recommend. (Written by Sam's wife)
