I am a physical therapist, so the commonly used "What to Expect..." series didn't really do it for me. I found I liked this book much better for it's detail, yet it was still an easy read. It would also be great for the layperson who wanted to dive a little deeper into what it really means to eat healthy when you are pregnant. If detail is not your thing and you just want an overview...then there are probably better options out there for you.

Great advice for nutrition before, during and after pregnancy. I love that it gives very specific diet information but that it is a very easy read. A must read for anyone expecting or planning on getting pregnant soon.

Great read for a first time mom. I knew most of the information in here already but it doesn't hurt to re-educate

So far seems like an informational book. I am glad they back up their statements with research.

I think this would be a great book if you are the type of person who wants to know every single detail about every single vitamin or if you have not been educated about a healthy lifestyle in the past. As a user-friendly reference text I rate this item a 5.

I am not a health nut, but I stay up to date on healthy diet/exercise practices, and I found those portions of this book to be very elementary. A lot of the given information is basic common sense. I learned nothing new and was surprised that glycemic index was not a covered topic given the increasing rates of gestational diabetes in America. As a handy guide for the reasonably educated parent (or parent to be) I rate this a 3, and I am really trying to be fair. Having this book is much better than not having anything, but there are much better books out there!

If you are in your 30's like me and looking for some well-rounded, informative and at least mildly engaging books on pregnancy, I would recommend you pass on this one. However, I can see where this book might be helpful to a younger person who needs basic healthy lifestyle education (if they have the patience to read it).

I bought this book for my Children's Nutition class. If was very informative and great for when I decide to have children of my own.
