This review is from: The Rough Guide to Pregnancy and Birth (Rough Guides Reference Titles) (Paperback)
Being funny, which it is, is not enough to make up for blatant inaccuracies (or bias) throughout the text. I take particular issue with the stance on vegetarian and vegan diets. She states that the vegan diet is inadequate for feotal development despite various official bodies producing clear statements that a vegan diet is suitable for ALL stages of life. She also states that some vitamins are only found in meat: 100% inaccurate.
If 'many medical professionals assert that a vegetarian diet is inadequate for a pregnant woman,' Then why am I yet to meet one??
Surely this is a result of poor research. I wouldn't take any medical advice from this book, what-so-ever.
