I had this book for my first pregnancy and read it from cover to cover several times. It had all the information I wanted to know. This is excellent for a first pregnancy. I gave it away to a friend and want it again for my THIRD pregnancy!

2.0 out of 5 stars miriam stoppards new pregnancy and birth book 17 Dec 2003
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I found that this book is quite old fashioned and generally lacked personality. I read through book at the beginning of my pregnancy and it scared the life out of me, a friend also agreed and recommended 'the rough guide to pregnancy' this a more laid back approach (although it does have everything you need to know)it is very comical and makes you feel you can make mistakes!!!we not all perfect afterall

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredibly useful 2 Aug 2001
By A. Woodley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Having just found out I am pregnant my sister gave me this book and it is so useful. Incredibly useful. I am one of those women who are coming to motherhood late - in my late thrities and without any experience of either pregnancy or children in the family much. It is a bit nerve-wracking (as well as marvellously joyous) so this book has proved to be a real salve to my nerves. It is so straightforward, well set out and has a plethora of easy to access information to take you through the pregnancy and after.
The contents are divided into 15 sections - the second chapter is the one I turned to immediately - it has all the pictures and information about the developing baby - even photos of what the fetus looks like at various stages. There is certainly a lot to think about health wise as well - Chapters 4 and 5 are on eating and fitness during pregnancy.
Other chapters deal with making a Birth plan for yourself, managing labour, dealing with common complaints, sex during pregnancy, preparing for the baby, and there are three chapters at the end on issues dealing with being new parents.
I have found this book comforting in the extreme. I realise once the pregnancy gets more advanced I will be in an antenatal group and generally have more contact with people who know about what the hell is going on. But for a first time mother with a lot of burning questions to ask and not many people to go to about them it is a wonderful reference book to have on hand.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dr. Miriam Stoppard's Pregnancy and Birth Book 3 Feb 2000
By Rebecca Vogel-Pitts - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I LOVED this book. It was one of my bible's when pregnant with my two children. The pictures are the most wonderful part. It shows the size of your baby's hand at certain stages of the pregnancy. It also shows how big YOU are! It answers your questions honestly and thoroughtly. I also found that real life stories were helpful as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Every woman's dream come true 20 July 2001
By "wendtan" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I've been searching for a specific guide on pregnancy and birth book and Dr.Miriam Stoppard books are the best. It is very specific in detail and it guides and helps any new mothers to be on their month to month pregnancy until they experience the birth of their child. All symtoms of pregnancy are explained easily and therefore no doubts occur except the feeling of self confidence and the courage to go on; overcoming all fears.It is a fantastic book! I had bought one for myself and I have bought another for my dear friend who is planning her pregnancy. It is definitely a great buy and keep for all mothers to be. I will definitely recommend this book for any of my friends.
