Book Description

18 Aug 2003 Fireside Books (Fireside)
YOUR VEGETARIAN PREGNANCY is the first authoritative guide to maintaining a healthy vegetarian diet before, during, and after the birth of your child. There's no question that a vegetarian or vegan diet is just as nutritionally sound during pregnancy as one that includes animal protein. In fact, vegetarian nutrition offers pregnant women valuable health benefits that you simply won't find in a non-vegetarian diet, such as higher levels of folic acid, lower cholesterol, and an abundant variety of essential minerals, vitamins, and nutrients. Whether you are already vegetarian or you simply want to reduce the amount of meat in your diet, making the right dietary choices to support you and your baby is the key to a safe, healthy pregnancy. With this unique and accessible handbook, filled with all the information required to make a balanced judgement about you pregnancy diet, you can be confident that your vegetarian pregnancy will be wonderfully beneficial for both you and your baby.

This is not just an exceptionally good source of information on nutrition for vegetarian women (antenatal, during pregnancy and in the months after), it provides tips on how to calm the nerves and fears of meat-eating relatives and friends.
It is also a complete month-by-month baby book, with images and info on the growth of your baby and the changes in your body.
There are no recipes in here, though, so if you are looking for a cookbook, this isn't it. But you will get information on every kind of food, vitamin, mineral, carbohydrate, protein, etc., source you can think of!

1.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't get with this book at all 27 July 2005
By A Customer
I've bought lots through Amazon over the years and this is the first time I've felt strongly enough to write a review. I've no complaints about the information in this book, but I found the tone and style so offputting that I stopped reading after a couple of chapters and have given it away. Basically it felt like the author was making a lot of assumptions about my views just because I'm pregnant and a vegetarian (for example by speaking about the joys of creating life without taking life (i.e. eating meat)) and it made the book very annoying to read.
I guess I like the 'rough guide to pregnancy' style, which is peer-to-peer, modern, informative and amusing - in contrast this title felt like I'd gone back in time with traditional black and white drawings of pregnant women and couples, over sweet introductions of what to expect at various stages which were probably meant to be inspirational but I think would have looked more at home in greeting cards, and generally a supportive, but to me overly mumsy and patronising manner.
You may find this book great and just what you wanted, it depends on what style you like.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible 2 Jun 2011
This is the first online review I've written, as I still feel quite strongly about this book just seeing it on my shelf some 8 months later.

I bought about 8 books when we found out my vegetarian wife was pregnant, this was the only vegetarian based book available and although there were mixed reviews I went ahead and purchased it anyway, however not only was this the worst pregnancy book I've read, it is the most annoying book I've ever read.

It makes a raft of assumptions of your beliefs, which ends up alienating many readers.
There are no recipes or meal ideas, considering this book is focused on diet, this seems odd.
It makes massively broad generalizations and has ridiculously subjective tables/charts which push the view that being a vegetarian is equal to or superior to being a meat-eater, rather than being un-biased and factual. It is so skewed and caught up in self-justification that I don't trust any of the other 'facts' that it presents. With it's 'holier-than-thou' attitude, it seems it is simply a book on how to justify your decision to be a vegetarian, rather than actually being any use to a vegetarian who is comfortable with their decision.

I hate this book with a passion.
