Stay away from sushi! Cut out caffeine! Get rid of your cat! Step away from the microwave!

Pregnant women are bombarded with "risk factors" they must avoid from the moment the stick turns pink. Heroic mothers-to-be sacrifice their favorite foods and activities for the sake of their baby, but with such long lists of "don'ts" and conflicting information, it is easy to feel

This is the same basic idea as Expecting Better, but Expecting Better is better written. I did find this book useful as sort of a second opinion, though - there were a few things where the authors reached different conclusions, which was slightly frustrating but encouraged me to do more research myself about those things.

True health lessons can be hard to find in an age when everyone can go online and post content and claim that they are the #1 experts in their field. How do you sort out trends from fact? Luckily, Daphne has done the research for anyone who wants to minimize uncertainty in their quest for a healthy pregnancy! Turns out, you may not have to give up your daily cup of coffee for a healthy baby... spread the word, and share this book with any soon-to-be-moms that you know to make their lives easier!

I read the whole thing but I can imagine many pregnant women and new moms using this book as a go-to must-have reference book. It helped me to more completely understand various myths and beliefs that surround childbirth. I like to give up to accurate advice to women I teach and this book is at my side.
For the record my edition has a yellow cover but I can't find that edition on Goodreads.
