I wish I had read this before my labor and delivery, but even reading it in the days afterward was very useful. It was reassuring to read about normalcy and have answers to questions about things that occurred and would occur in the days soon to come. This book answers many of the questions that a new mom has and may not think to ask her doctor. Questions can be answered or prompted from this little quick guide. It is short enough to read in snippets and enjoy the information gained. I recommend it and look forward to other Quick Guides from the "Your Pregnancy" series.
