Read in January, 2011

About 75% of the information found in Greenfield's pregnancy guide for career women can be found in other pregnancy preparation books - information on what to expect each month, tips about finding and communicating with doctors, advice for easing discomforts, etc. However, the book does include helpful tips about talking with your employer about work and maternity leave, preparing for the return to work and managing pregnancy symptoms and problems within the workplace. Greenfield, facing a daunting task to capture the experience of all working women when her examples range from FedEx delivery personnel to nurses to advertising executives, cannot possible present a comprehensive picture of pregnancy that fits all women. However, the anecdotes from diverse women on a range of topics were amusing and sometimes insightful. Is this the only pregnancy book you'll need? Probably not. But if you're concerned about how pregnancy will affect your work, this is certainly one to add to your shelf.
