Out of all the pregnancy books I've read so far, I found this one to be the most helpful. Lots of bullets, easy to digest information and charts. I definitely recommend it to someone looking for more of an overview! Read full review
Review: The Mother of all Pregnancy BooksUser Review - Kim Forsythe - Goodreads
A good primer but the same information can be found in other books with greater detail. I liked this book for TTC but then I read Taking Charge of Your Fertility: The Definitive Guide to Natural Birth Control, Pregnancy Achievement, and Reproductive Health. Read full review
