There are many books on the market right now that offer a plethora of great advice when you're expecting, but the fact is, the majority of them are dry and/or boring. That is not the case with this book. "The Mommy MD Guide is informative, real, and fun. It does offer A LOT of practical medical-based advice, but it also offers advice on the experience. For example, it talks about how to deal with skin changes that occur when you're expecting; it covers how to practically deal with unsolicited advice (of which you will likely receive plenty): and offers advice on what to do with unwelcome heartburn (but to name a few of the many examples).
So much in this book was top of the line, but my absolute favorite thing was the way it started each new week of pregnancy with a detailed description of the baby's development, changes the expecting mom was likely to be going through, and a 'Justification for Celebration.' And even though the book was written by a conglomeration of medical professionals, it was conversational in tone, easy to relate to, and very easy to understand. The only thing I found missing in this book was illustrations of the baby. The details of how baby is developing offered a great visual, but I like to see actual drawings. The collection is so good, however that it wouldn't detract me from purchasing the book, or from giving it a 10 out of 10 reader rating.
If you are hoping to have a baby, already expecting, or know someone who is, I highly recommend getting this book. Whether you're looking for practical advice from medical doctors who are more importantly moms, or you are looking for advice on the bigger issues like breastfeeding, or cord blood banking, you won't be disappointed with your choice. It really is one of those books that once you read it, you want everyone else to read it too; it's just that good.
