Pregnancy is a time of great happiness for most people, but can also be a time of worry and stress. There are so many new things happening to your body, that it can be quite unnerving, and lots of first time mums need a bit of reassurance that what they are going though is normal, and how to make the best of it. It’s a captive market as far as the book trade is concerned and there are plenty of books to help you through your pregnancy, from funny anecdotal accounts to more serious tomes. What to Expect When you are Expecting is one of the serious ones: it looks like a manual rather than a light bedtime read: it’s full of factual information and practical advice and is at Read the complete review

When I found out I was pregnant I was overwhelmed at how many books were out there offering advice to pregnant women and I had no idea where to start until we looked in a book shop and found this one. Hubby had wanted a book that dealt with everything step by step and this book offered that along with questions that most first time/expectant parents ask themselves. I managed to obtain my book from readitswapit.com so there was no high price tag attached but it generally retails at around £14.99 brand new. The version I am reviewing is the third edition. The book is broken down into Parts and then Chapters and it really is ideal for those ... Read the complete review

“What to expect….” is a pregnancy classic... according to the back of the book, it's the world's best-selling pregnancy manual. It’s hard to conceive (aagh! bad pun alert!) of any pregnancy-related issue or question which isn’t covered somewhere in its 593 pages. The book is the work of Heidi E Murkoff, Arlene Eisenberg and Sandee E Hathaway, who – as you might surmise from their names – are American; however, it has been fully amended for a UK audience. A gentleman called Dr Richard Aubry has acted as medical consultant and also provided a foreword for the book. No – make that two forewords. (“A Word from the Doctor” and, wait for it…. “Another Word From the Doctor”.) .. Read the complete review

A great book especially for every normal first time neurotic mother who worries about every twinge, stretch mark, and milestone. What is normal? When should this happen? When should I see the doctor and most importantly what should I expect? These are just a few of the questions every mother asks and what to expect answers. As for fathers it can be a very daunting time when they can feel left out, this book will help them to understand what is going on with their partners bodies. The best way to read it is month by month as you get there, reading ahead is not recommended in the book and I would agree with this. There are sections at the back of the ...

Pregnancy can be a bit of a confusing time. I'm now languishing at home at the end of my first pregnancy waiting for the stork to drop the little bundle of joy through the letterbox, if only! When we first found out I was pregnant we were pretty clueless. I mean we knew the basics ie baby starts of small and gets progressively bigger, several minor and not so minor complaints attached to pregnancy, labour is not the most pleasant of experiences. But it was the details we wanted to swot up on. So I brought 'what to expect when you?re expecting' This is a fantastically informative book. The book is divided into different stages from finding ... Read the complete review
