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

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.

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.

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