I'm really excited that 'My pregnancy recipes and meal planner' is about to be published. Every recipe in it has been tested by a real mum or mum-to-be and by their partners and friends. With their help I've managed to bring together a collection of dishes that meet all the needs of growing babies but also satisfy the taste buds of pregnant women and anyone they might be eating with.

Product Description

Review

‘A good book for popping in your handbag when you go out to eat, this is easy to read and well-structured, with a handy A-Z section listing the pregnancy safety guidelines for a large variety of foods. There are also usefully sections on what to eat when you’re breastfeeding. An informative read that you can just flick through quickly if you want to find out something specific.’

Pregnancy & Birth, November 2011 issue

From the Back Cover

Pregnancy is an amazing time, full of wonder and excitement. But it can be worrying too. You know it’s down to you to eat and drink in a way that will keep your baby safe and provide the ideal fuel for growth and development. But for most of us it’s far from clear exactly what that means.

So what should you eat – and what should you avoid? What's healthy - and what's not? And if there is a risk involved with certain foods, what exactly is the risk and how big is it? What are the nutrients that a growing baby needs and what can you eat to provide them? Do you need to take supplements, and if so, which ones?

This handy, compact book is your saviour.  It's the definitive healthy eating guide for pregnancy and provides an instant checklist as to what foods are safe and what you should steer clear of.  This new edition has been fully revised and includes:

·         A unique, updated A-Z of food and drink – the ultimate handy, quick reference

·         Guidelines on alcohol and caffeine, with full explanation

·         Advice for vegetarian mothers-to-be and those on special diets

·         Tips on how to handle morning sickness

·         How to achieve a healthy weight gain and how to lose it sensibly afterwards

·         Latest research findings on what foods affect a baby’s development, including the most up-to-date advice on allergy proofing your baby

·         What you should and shouldn’t eat while breastfeeding

Expert nutritionist and pregnancy specialist Dr Rana Conway provides all the facts and everything you need to know to give your baby the very best start in life.

I received this book as a gift and read it cover to cover when it arrived. It is well written and easy to read and I like the fact it explains exactly why certain foods should be avoided. It also has lots of useful features such as an A-Z guide, which is great for when you are cooking and want to check on a single ingredient, and a section on 'common questions' such as 'What should I do if I've eaten something I shouldn't'.

This book is great. You can have information about the nutrients you need and how to get them. Also is very down to earth regarding alcohol, coffee, tobacco and others. No morals just more real information. The greatest is the list of foods that you can consult it to know if it is safe or not to eat and how much you can. Great book.

This is such a useful little book. It cuts through all the rubbish and uncertainty that you hear about nutrition in pregnancy. A really good buy and interesting too.

This book was so good at putting all the information I needed in one easy to read place. The lists of foods made it easy to find out if I could safely eat them or not, and the explanations were short and logical so I understood what the underlying research was without having to plough through loads of confusing papers and articles. There were useful tips and info about what I should and shouldn't eat, along with information about supplements. I'm still using it now as there is also a section on what to eat whilst breastfeeding. A great buy and so useful.

Out of all the books on things you can and can't eat when preggers, i'd reccomend this one. Its not too big so is the kind of book thats not too heavy to read in bed, had lists of things you can and can't eat, not patronising, hints etc for how to eat for conception, and also after birth, and miscarriage.

This is an excellent book, everything is broken down into sections and the food is listed alphabetically as a quick reference to whether it's safe or not, or if it should be eaten in moderation. The list of cheeses I found particularly helpful. The official NHS website also has great advice of course, but this book goes into more detail and clears up the confusion that well meaning relatives can sometimes give you just before you tuck into your dinner. It also covers vitamins and minerals, Veggie Preganancies for those of you wondering - and goes beyond into breastfeeding. All in all I don't think I could do without this book now.

This book is good, absolutely. But the first few chapters are quite repetitive of a lot of info you get in books like What to Expect. The main thing that is different about this book is the A-Z list of what you can and cannot eat. But this list is far too short and many times what I was looking for wasn't on the list. And the author also takes a maybe stance on a lot of things, giving info so you can make up your own mind.

If the A-Z list was twice as long as it is, I would recommend this book but as it is I wouldn't recommend it to a friend or buy it again myself.
