bookshelves: nonfiction, health, pregnancy
Read in March, 2008

Non-alarmist and focusing on commonsense good-health measures (get plenty of rest, eat lots of grains and fruits and vegetables, and exercise regularly). The mom and baby week-by-week section isn’t as thorough as I would have liked, but the reference sections with everything from decision making guides, to how pre-existing conditions can affect pregnancy, to common complications with labor and delivery, through postpartum care is a wealth of good information. I am sure that I will be flipping through those sections all throughout my pregnancy. I would have liked to have seen a few more charts along the lines of ‘what foods are on the do-not-eat list and which should you just use caution with’ and ‘what kinds of exercises at what intensity are safe during the different phases of pregnancy’.

From my personal collection.
