it was ok

This is the book everyone seems to grab when they are pregnant, and while it does have some good info on development for each month, it is definitely not my first choice for preparing a woman for what will happen in pregnancy and childbirth. It is very medically oriented, with plenty of material to scare an expecting mom. I would recommend books that lean toward natural options, preparing to have a peaceful and positive birthing experience, and helping the mother to gain confidence as she prepares to welcome a new life. Some good ones are Birthing from Within and Husband Coached Childbirth.
