Book Description

7 Sep 2009 Mumsnet
Since its launch in June 2000, hundreds of thousands of mums (and a fair few dads too) have swapped answers, recommendations and war stories on They have debated the pros and cons of organic baby food, fretted over whether or not to use dummies - and how to wean children off them - shared breast-feeding tips, agonised over the best nursery schools, helped each other through the upheavals of returning to work and swapped tips on anything from feuding siblings, to mysterious illnesses. Pregnancy: the Mumsnet Guide is packed full of the advice, wisdom, reassurance and down-to-earth humour of these many many parents, distilled and presented in a way that is both accessible and authoritative. From hormones to hypnobirthing, stretch marks to swollen ankles, birth plans to births-not-so-planned, and all the jitters and joys in between, Pregnancy: The Mumsnet Guide is the essential, comprehensive and compassionate birthing bible for every parent-to-be. This is the indispensable guide from the frontline of parenting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pregnancy - the Mumsnet Guide 16 Sep 2009
I loved the Toddlers Guide, which helped through many a toddler tantrum. Now I'm pregnant, 24 weeks, with baby number two.
I couldnt wait for this to be published. My copy arrived this morning with the Postman and it's brilliant. Its full of great and useful advice from other pregnant Mums but equally had me laughing till I cried. It's really refreshing to have a pregnancy guide that uses other Mothers experiences and suggestions.
If I can be more helpful I'd say its the hardback version of their site, funny and imformative all at the same time .

3.0 out of 5 stars Kindle edition 6 Dec 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a really fab book - the actual book gets five stars, but it doesn't work very well on the Kindle - you can't see all the text in the pullout boxes and pictures (hence three stars).

5.0 out of 5 stars The Michael McIntyre of pregnancy manuals 25 Sep 2009
Pregnancy is hardly a laugh a minute but Mumsnetters wring the (very) funny side out of their morning sickness-filled handbags and Trevi fountain-filled bras. I like the fact it covers the whole works - health, tests, weight, birth, sex, breastfeeding etc, down to a 'boot camp' for dads-to-be - and have re-read the development calendar about 10 times so far. I reckon this is the closest you get to your mum/best mates telling you what it's actually like being pregnant and having a baby ie the full-fat version, not the tasteful bump version.

I'm currently brewing baby number 3 and think that I'm reasonably savvy when it comes to being pregnant and what it entails. However, all 3 pregnancies have been very different for me, and I'm always open to new ideas and a different point of view.

This book for me has it all - I found it to be an unpatronising and insightful read. I think the stories and experiences from other Mums are a nice touch and some had me laughing out loud. Always nice to know that it's not just you dribbling/worrying/forgetting your own name.

Full of practical info and good to know advice, as well as being an entertaining read, I reckon you could do a lot worse than fork out a few quid for this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must have pregnancy book! 5 April 2012
By A. Lee
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
With baby number 2 on the way I got this book after reading some of the other reviews. I was not disappointed, this is a great book, which I was not able to put down! I wish it had been around for my first pregnancy, having the tips/stories from other mums is very comforting. It is a dip in & out guide, but also a sit and read (through the tears of laughter) guide too. It deals with a lot of the unspoken pregnancy issues/worries in a wonderfully factual and funny way. First time, second time (maybe more) mummy this is a must read! I've got the toddler one too and can't wait to read it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 8 Feb 2012
I absolutely love this book. I read it twice during my pregnancy. The stories of others are great, as there's always two sides to everything, and seeing this helps reassure that you're not alone!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome book - a must for any first time mum! 18 Jan 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book whilst pregnant with my first baby. A refreshing, honest and informative guide which says it how it is. Learning from other mum's experiences really struck a chord with me, you know you're not being sold a particular viewpoint or method of child rearing. This book was worth its weight in gold as I recall sitting in the garden in the early stages of labour when my contractions had started, this book had me laughing out loud as my husband read out some particularly hilarious accounts. I now religiously buy this book for every friend who becomes pregnant.
