كتاب بطل فادني كثير بمعلومات عن الحمل والولاده والتعامل مع الطفل، انصح كل ام جديده بقرائته، يحتاج نرجعله مره ومرتين وثلاثه .. الله يهون على كل الحوامل وييسر ولادتهم ويجيب كتكوتي بالسلامه : )

There are hundreds of books to choose from when you find out you're pregnant. If you are wanting a thorough, well-thought-out, interesting, and all-around good pregnancy book, this is the one I recommend. I read pretty much the entire thing through-out my pregnancy with my daughter. I had heard the typical "What to Expect When You're Expecting" gave a lot of moms worries, and I was surprised at the low ratings of it. I'm so glad my husband bought me this book because I feel it had to do with cal ...more

I'm skipping around in this book - primarily staying away from the delivery section...not quite ready for that! OKAY - finally got through a majority of this book and would recommend this for anyone having their first child. It's a great overview book for both parents on what to expect without forcing advice in one direction or another.

A useful pregnancy bible that I have revisited over the last few nights, just to refresh my mind before our new arrival! This is quite informative and helpful, although I do prefer the What to Expect... books when it comes to having a reference for pregnancy. Nevertheless, I would recommend this to pregnant Moms-to-be, particular those who prefer a factual read with pictures.

Useful book for moms to be. Many pictures and useful tips: from the impregnation to the birth of the baby (and further care).
However some information is a bit dated.

This book has been my companion through two pregnancies.

There is so much choice out there when it comes to buying a book that will help you navigate those strange nine months that it can become quite overwhelming. Let's just say I am glad I seem to have made the right choice when I bought this one.

It is clear, informative, colourful and has a great timeline you can use to plot the development of your baby. I found it inspiring rather than overwhelming, and kept going back to it week by week to s

By the time I cracked this book open, I was a bit tired of pregnancy books, so that may contribute to my so-so rating. However, unlike the other books I received, this one is colorful with many pictures and timelines. I think it’s a good, thorough reference, but I don’t think it’s the single must-have guide for a pregnant woman.

More geared towards a British mother than 'What to Expect...' (Thus more useful to me!) and a lot easier to read. I felt a lot more reassured by this book as well. Only slight annoyance is that it's a teensy weensy bit repetitive at times.

I am loving this book so far. It provides indepth information on all the information a mother-to-be wants to have. I have learned much more from just the first three chapters than any other pregnancy book, magazine, or class.

Excellent, comprehensive and all you need to know about pregnancy!
Information week to week about your changing body and your growing baby. It also covers everything in pregnancy including some troubleshooting!
It will also prepare first time parents for their new bundle of joy.

Weliswaar uitgebreid boek, maar de informatiedichtheid is een stuk lager dan verwacht. Daarnaast veel 'fouten': dingen die in Engeland vast zo zijn, maar in Nederland zeker niet.

An interesting book which I have been reading throughout pregnancy, covering all aspects of pregnancy, labour, issues that can arise, looking after the baby and yourself, etc. I would recommend it.

This book was the perfect book for pregnancy. It's detailed in every way. It helped me understand what on earth my body was doing! The good and the gross!

Easy to read - can dip in and out of relevant sections. Not patronising. Clearly written.

Great book!

A must-read for first time parents. Information is very clear and well supported by respectable sources. Chapters are well organised so it's easy to follow
