I must admit that I was not overly impressed by this book, although I think it is excellent that such books exist to prove that vegan diets are healthy and feasible during all life stages. I was expecting a detailed guide to vegan nutrition during pregnancy, but most of the book is actually a guide to what to expect physically and emotionally during pregancy, birth and breastfeeding. It is well written and provides basic information, but I would recommend a more in-depth nutrition guide such as ...more

Type in vegan and pregnancy in Amazon and this book pops up. I checked my library and they carried it, so naturally I checked it out. Sadly it was largely not helpful for me, a vegan who is pretty well educated in diet. The book largely focuses on diet breaking down most of the chapters by important vitamin, minerals, and macros that pregnant women should focus on, which are things most vegans learn about- protein, calcium, vitamin D, vitamin B12, and iron. The only new information is pretty muc ...more

Informative, though I knew most of the information already. Covered many aspects of pregnancy as well as into labor and breast feeding.

This book is great. I actually think this book would be great for anyone who's pregnant, not just vegans. The first few chapters detail specific nutrients that a woman needs more of when pregnant and goes into what it's for and what foods you can get it from the easiest. There is also information about supplementing nutrients and what you need to make sure your prenatal contains. Really great information.

For the pregnant vegans, there's a chapter all about the questions people will probably ask

Was surprised that women would change to a vegan lifestyle during pregnancy. The transition can be hard for most during a normal cycle.
I guess some mothers would because meat might make them sick.
Some interesting information on getting the right vitamins.

I was not very impressed. It seemed like a general vegan diet book with some parts of what to expect in your trimesters etc. It did not wow me. Maybe more interesting for newer vegans.

Sadly, I wouldn't say that this is the definitive guide to vegan pregnancy (I still find myself thumbing through other general pregnancy & vegan books to find answers to my questions), but it's certainly a good place to start, and it fills a much-needed niche. Surprisingly, much of the book is just general info about pregnancy. Since there are a gazillion other pregnancy books out there, I was hoping it would dig a bit deeper into vegan-specific issues like nutrition planning, sample menus & ...more

I would recommend this book to vegans looking for a general pregnancy book without advice about eating animal products. It's probably not of much use to somebody who already has had a kid or been pregnant before because a lot of the advice is very general. However, it is refreshing to not have references to non-vegan foods constantly and the recipes are decent. I didn't find the part about talking to family/doctors helpful, it never helped with my midwife.

A good resource, though it's more about pregnancy in general rather than specifically vegan pregnancy nutrition. Kinda reads like a text book, as well. Good for reference.
