As a first time parent I found this book a thorough, good solid read which made me feel more prepared! Easy to read and well laid out, the book covers everything you need to know from maternity entitlements to what pushchair to buy. Would definitely recommend.

I have been in childcare for over 20 yrs now and have never found a book so comprehensive , helpful and friendly. The wording is simple but NOT patronising . many many tips that are invaluable . Working as a professional with babies, it's comforting to be able to refer back to an up to date book, and it's rare to find a book that's updated annually. This will now become my bible ! superb !

Format: Paperback
As well as the typical week by week development of the baby, there are also concise but clear sectinos on 'my career', 'my lifetsyle and body' as well as 'my aches and pains'. Complementing the 'feel good' guides, this is down to earth, breaking down the sections in clear but not clinical way. It's also good to have up to date info in there - like apparently after April 2011 a dad can take additional paternity leave etc. Well written and hekpful.

This excellent book covers everything you need to know about pregnancy and birth, with the extra bits you did not know to ask about! It gives enough detail without getting too complicated. There are lots of sections to dip in and out of or you can read it from cover to cover whilst waiting for your bump to become baby! Topics usually found in baby magazines like 'mummy shopping' are a great addition to the standard pregnancy topics and it even gives suggested websites to look at. Full of hints and tips and professional advice this book is a great read for any first time pregnant parent.

Format: Paperback
First of all, this is a thorough pregnancy book with tons of advice. A few words of criticism though:
- I found the tone of this book rather clinical and I was hoping for a more positive and upbeat picture of pregnancy. An example: Rather than describing the first scan as an exciting experience, the author points out that it is important to take someone with you if the news is bad ("...the sonographer might pick up a problem and if that happens it's better to have someone to support you if the news is bad.", p. 23). Leaving it at that would be okay, but a page later, it goes on: "Sadly, the scan can also pick up the news that no expectant mother wants to hear: that the pregnancy is no longer viable and the baby has died or is unlikely to survive.".
- This book left me completely paranoid. It mentions everything that can possibly go wrong or happen during a pregnancy. Do not get me wrong - it certainly does not hurt to be informed, but in retrospect I would have been better off not worrying too much about having an ectopic pregnancy or restleg leg syndrome.
- What conclusions would you draw from the following sentences: "The problem with pregnancy and infectious disease is that you can't wrap yourself in cotton wool and avoid human contact for nine months,..." (p. 151) or "Just remember: if you wanted to minimise any risk of food poisoning or contamination you'd never eat out during your pregnancy,..." (p. 137). As a first time mum-to-be I was anxious enough anyway and afraid of doing things wrong, so advice was very welcome. However, there is a thin line between being sensible and overly cautious and the author has crossed this line several times in my opinion (for example when mentioning chemical free nail varnishes).

Everything is laid out in a nice clear way and as other reviers have said it has some negatives in which is good as it stops you getting carried away juts in case something goes wrong.

Would highly recomend this book to all who are expecting.
