The Girlfriends' Guide to Pregnancy by Vicki Iovine
- Somewhat dated in tone, reminiscent of 90's woman power
- Humorous and conversationally written
- Encouraging to women intimidated by the super moms that look down on anyone not planning a completely natural childbirth
- Lots of practical advice
The Unofficial Guide to Having a Baby by Ann Douglas and John R. Sussman, M.D.
- Very detailed
- Handy checklists
- Handy glossary
- Trimester and week by week selections
- Factual tone, doesn't espouse one method of childbirth over another
Your Pregnancy Week by Week by Dr. Glade B. Curtis, OB/GYN and Judith Schuler, M.S.
- Week by week format
- Illustrations of fetal development
What to Expect When You're Expecting by Heidi Murkoff, Arlene Eisenberg, and Sandee Hathaway, B.S.N.
- It seems this is the book you're 'expected' to read when you're expecting
- Month by month format
- Engaging format, somewhat like a newspaper or newsletter
- Detailed answers to questions, concerns
That is enough of these for now; there's actually one more book that I want to talk about in more detail later that I like better than any of these. So, let me know what you think I should add to my library?
