A mama friend sent me this book when she found out I was pregnant, and I'm glad she did! A great alternative to "What to Expect When You're Expecting", which I've heard is a horribly terrifying book. This book outlines what to expect during various stages of pregnancy, explains the various tests you might encounter, possible complications and medical & non-medical treatments, childbirth, and more. Written by an OB who believes in holistic medicine, the book has some great advice about herbal [...]

Might be better subtitled "An Obstetrician Gutlessly Recommends a Bunch of Ineffective 'Alternative Medicines' that At Least Won't Hurt You." Or "In Which I Recommend Red Raspberry Leaf Tea for Everything Because It Is Totally Inert."On the other hand, I was happy to see that the doctor-author recommends being very flexible about a birth "plan" and finding a real healthcare provider and then taking his/her advice.Otherwise, it was definitely not useful to me at all. I was hoping to find some rea [...]

This is probably the best pregnancy "handbook" I've read yet. I have the "what to expect" on too, but it can't hold a candle to this one. This one is good for women (and their partners) who want to be pregnant "outside the box". It offers lots of insight and practical, natural remedies and ideas on nutrition, prenatal carerthl of it. The information is organized in such a way that it is accessible quickly, the month by month guide and birthing information and is mindfully written and inspiring! [...]

My favorite preggo book by far - perhaps it's because the approach is most aligned with my thinking, but I love the way the book integrates conventional and alternative approaches to pregnancy, labor, and newborn care. The best thing about it is very well-informed discussions of the various decisions that need to be made during pregnancy and birth. The information on how to treat common illnesses and pregnancy symptoms is also great. The information on gestation is a little less detailed than in [...]

This book was recommended by a good friend and I'm so glad to have read it. For someone who likes to have all information at hand and make her own decisions, this book is terrific. It gives plenty of details for what to expect throughout pregnancy, the Western medicine approach to pregnancy, complications, tests, illness and labor--as well as alternative methods of dealing with things. It helped put my mind at ease about what was to come, and it remains a reference manual for things as they aris [...]

This was my favorite book while I was pregnant. It has a wonderful well-rounded approach to a natural pregnancy. It includes an overview of which herbs/drugs are safe while you are pregnant, gives summaries on many complications you may worry about, and has simple yoga exercises with clear illustrations. My only wish was a more in depth time-line of what to expect- but then I couldn't get enough of that while I was pregnant.

My close friend who is a complementary health MD gave me this early on and this has been my favorite info guide to date. Thorough, well balanced and much more in line with my health and life beliefs. I like all the info on diet and exercise (especially the many therapeutic yoga moves which actually do work!). Also love how the author does not view pregnancy as a sick process filled with imminent dangers.

I THINK this was a good book! Mostly I have no idea what makes a good pregnancy book. This seemed to have lots of good info and covered many different facets. I learned alot. I'm still probably clueless, though!! :)

So far I really like the matter of fact approach, and broad base of information regarding complimentary medicine (combination of traditional and alternative). Wish there was more in terms of homeopathy and acupuncture. Great book though

buy immediately. read chapters about preconception health.drjoelevans/handbook/W

I read this last year when I was pregnant. I think its a great pregnancy handbook. Much better that the "What to expect" books.

using more as an occasional reference

great info from an obstetrician who incorporates alternative medicine into his traditional medical care.

Great way to blend traditional and alternative medicine during a pregnancy. Too bad my wife wasn't interested in listening to any of the suggestions. Oh, need to pick up her vitamins. :)

This was by far one of the most useful and informative of the pregnancy books I have read. I highly recommend it.
