"This amazingly well-organized, concise and informative book covers all
aspects of having a baby from fertility issues to diet and nutrition, to the
challenges and rewards of pregnancy, to life after baby comes. Though I’ve
read countless books on the subject, have had a son and grandkids, and

by the wisdom, depth and detail of this book. It’s warm, ‘user friendly’
and will certainly prove a great companion for the many people on the
