Their section on vitamins and supplements is very detailed and helpful. This is a very well researched and easy to follow guide to pre-conception nutrition.
My only quibble is the American measurements for food (e.g. 1 cup of rice etc.). I wish they would use ounces or grams so I would understand portion sizes better. We don't use cups as measurements in Ireland!
However, if you are planning a pregnancy, buy this and it will open your eyes as to the importance of what we eat. I feel healthy and well, and I look great. Next stop, conception!!
This is probably one of the very few books that provide lots of useful information on preconception care. I think it is important for parents-to-be to prepare their bodies for such an important milestone of their lives.
The book has comprehensive information ranging from nutrition to supplements to exercises. I recommend parents-to-be to read this book 3 months before trying to conceive.

I also really liked the tone of this book. It was friendly and informative yet confident and authoritative. I did not feel like there was lecturing going on (which is good as lecturing, let's be honest, can sometimes trigger a "I don't care what you say, I'm gonna do such-and-such anyway!" reaction), but rather like the authors were part of my "preconception team," working WITH me and my husband towards achieving the goal of a healthy and happy pregnancy.
