    One thought on “Dr. Miriam Stoppard's New Pregnancy and Birth Book”

    1. Love Doctor Mom! Read her when starting my family almost 30 years ago, now passing her on to my daughter, expecting her first. :)

    2. This was the first book I read about pregnancy. It’s a good one to have before you get pregnant, as there is some info for conceiving which is helpful.Good points:/• Lots of information, but not an info-dump or info overload.• Pictures (photos). • Info for each stage: pre-conception, conception, each stage of pregnancy, labour & birth.• Easy to flick through to find what you’re interested in.Bad points:• I felt it didn’t have enough info during pregnancy, because it spaced ou [...]

    3. I liked all the pictures in this one, plus the topical arrangement of chapters (instead of the chronological order most books on this subject seem to take). I liked it, I didn't love it. Some of it seemed a little too focused on midwives and home births (that's great if you want to do it, but plenty of us still have babies in hospitals). Also it seemed a little focused on standards in European (British?) pregnancy care. Honestly, I'm tired of browsing pregnancy books, so I didn't really get into [...]

    4. I felt that this book was very helpful and interesting. Someone had made a comment about the "graphic images" and then I had to go back in the book and figure out what they were talking about. The first time through they didn't phase me. I was grateful for the realistic pictures in the book, but if you are offended by seeing naked women giving birth etc. then I guess this isn't the book for you! There are a lot of images! What I liked best about this book is the realistic views in preparation fo [...]

    5. Lots of very visual information (pictures, graphs, etc.) but recommends Moses baskets, which are strongly discouraged by every other book I've read. It makes me suspicious of the rest of the information provided.

    6. This was my favourite pregnancy book, I felt it told me everything I wanted to know. Unlike others, I also enjoyed the pictures, I felt at least I have something to compare my changing body to instead of googling bump pictures to see how "normal" I am.

    7. For being "new and updated" this book still felt really outdated. Also, it has some very graphic pictures in it. I didn't get much new or helpful information out of it, but at least the chapters on labor and delivery were a good review for me. There are better pregnancy books out there.

    8. The information was okay - nothing too different from other pregancy books. However, there are way too many pictures of naked pregnant ladies in the book (not having birth, just standing up to show their profiles).

    9. Very clear, easy to understand and has many real life color pictures. Read over the entire thing in one sitting!

    10. The stuff about what to expect from you doctor was not very in line with what I experienced. Did not find this book very helpful.

    11. Actually, I just skimmed the book. Seems like a good picture and text book about all stages or pregnancy and delivery. WARNING! Real pictures in there!

    12. An excellent reference book to read during pregnancy. Written in an easy to read style which answered a lot of my questions.
