Read full description of the books:
When we found out my sister was pregnant, I wanted to get her a pregnancy book, so I went to the bookstore and stood in front of the many shelves of these types of books. After pulling out my phone and reading a few GoodReads reviews, I chose to purchase this book -- and I'm so glad I did! I ended up borrowing it back from my sis to learn more about what she was going through, and to educate myself about childbirth so that I can help on the big day!
This book has the perfect balance between providing accurate information and providing a comforting resource for your worries and fears. I have heard that some books give so much information, especially about complications and abnormalities, that it can be anxiety-causing for the mother. This book does not skirt around any of these issues, but provides the information in a context that is positive and reassuring. It often gives numbers and statistics from actual studies to give perspective about the chances of these problems actually occurring. And that's great, because let's face it - even if something bad does happen, it doesn't do the mother any good to worry about it for her whole pregnancy. Just knowing about the possibilities is enough.
Great Expectations also does a good job of encouraging the mother to make healthy choices without scaring her into being obsessed about everything she eats; it recommends focusing on trying to have a "good week" rather than obsessing about which foods you ate in any given day.
People who are dead-set on a hospital birth with drugs, or inducing, may find this book to be biased against this choice. However, it seems to me that the authors provide accurate information about these choices and that any mother would do well to educate herself about all options before making a birth plan. Mothers who are curious about birth centers, etc. will find a lot of helpful information here.
The book encourages a positive, reasonable approach to pregnancy and childbirth and is a wealth of information for any mother-to-be, or their friends and family.
