MUST BE LISTEN!

This book is full of wonderful information! I love listening weekly updates about our little sweet baby. It has great additional information such as when is best to tell your boss, what to eat, what to expect at your first appointment, etc.

Useful book.

Perfect book for new moms. It’s in question and answer format, easy to read and understand. Chapters are separated by months and topic also.

Best Summary.

Most of the topics covered in the books are things you know before hand, your family/friends have been through it, or your doctor tells you. I guess if you're completely clueless it's a good book.

Good information packed into short and sweet ...

Got this one for her now that she's expecting her first little one. In the days of the internet, it's still nice to be able to look something up in an actual book.

Excellent overview.

Really informative and accurate, particularly on the small, weird changes that come with pregnancy. The format is laid our out for each month of the pregnancy with so much useful information.

Good.

It is good information and at least I know now that when something happens, I am not the only one that has had that issue or problem and that there are ways to solve them.

Great Book.

Excellent resource for my daughter in law as this is her first child. It basically explains all the oddities you might find you're experiencing when you're pregnant.

Such a great book to purchase when you're expecting! I recently had my first child, and I purchased this book. It literally teaches you everything you need to know. It's very informative. I highly recommend!

Absolutely amazing book!

This is a great book for both first time moms and mothers who already have other children. This book helps answer all the little questions you have, and even answers questions that hadn't occurred to you. There's definitely a reason this book has been around so long.
