What People are Saying About This
Mid-Ohio Valley Parent, January 2012
“This has been a great resource for moms-to-be throughout the years and this latest edition is no exception!”
“This excellent book…certainly does make the process from pregnancy to birth (and for the first month or so afterwards) much easier to cope with and understand…The sensitivity and care with which Curtis and Schuler present all information—positive, negative or neutral—remain hallmarks of this fact-packed and thick oversize paperback…Reading it provides much of the assurance of a knowledgeable 24-hour-a-day companion who can take you through the many vicissitudes of pregnancy with a firm and knowing hand. Even women who have been pregnant before will benefit from the information here—and those in their first pregnancies will find the book invaluable.” Sacramento Book Review, February 2012
“Most women will find that this book contains everything they need for a healthy pregnancy.”
Bookviews blog, March 2012 “As comprehensive a body of information about pregnancy as you will find anywhere.”
