Whether you're pregnant for the first time, are trying to start your family, or already have enough children to start your own basketball team, you're bound to have questions about what it means to be pregnant - and how you can increase your odds of having a healthy and happy pregnancy. But no matter how much you've read, watched, studied, or talked about this amazing biological journey, you have never heard anything like this.
In this groundbreaking book, Dr. Michael Roizen and Dr. Mehmet Oz act as mythbusters for the hundreds of questions surrounding pregnancy in the same scientific, informative, and entertaining ways that have made them America's Doctors. Here you'll learn everything you need to know about the miracles of fetal development, your health throughout the pregnancy, and providing the best possible environment for your growing child.

This was a great pregnancy book. Lots of good information. Not a waste of time. I listened to it on my ipod while in bed with nausea for a good 2 weeks. I recommend it for anyone who is expecting a child.
This book was well written. I felt like I had a good grasp of what to expect when having a baby just by reading this book. I think the only point I'd like to make is that the book left me a little worried and burdened about giving birth. Maybe I just wasn't ready to hear everything like it is. But I have to say that when I read Jenny McCarthy's book her humor made me lose any fear. Perhaps I just need a little more humor when it comes to something that makes me nervous.
I enjoyed listening to this book and thought the delivery (no pun intended) was very well done. It covers all the bases and helps prepare you for the ride of a lifetime.
Detailed, Organized, Interesting and Informative
Their voice intonations helps understand the book better.
I listened to it on a trip from Boston to NY and back. It was the greatest trip ever.
While Mehmet Oz is interesting enough to listen to, Michael Roizen o-ver-e-nun-ci-ates e-ver-y syl-lab-le. They alternate between each other, making the contrast between them that much more noticeable. This audiobook is unlistenable and I regret ever having wasted my credit on it.
This book contains useful medical information for expecting mothers. I found it to be somewhat terrifying, and unnecessarily cautious. Perhaps it would be better as a physical book. As an audiobook I couldn't easily skip chapters that weren't pertinent to my pregnancy. I didn't even finish it, I purchased the mayo clinic book instead which I like much better!
Addicted to Audible since 2009
I didn't think I would get too much out of this book but I couldn't have been any more work. I definitely learned a great deal from this and I would highly recommend this book for those about to have a baby!
We were about to start trying for a baby and I liked the information in the book - especially about how the experience in utero affects gene expression, and the importance of having a healthy, low-stress lifestyle.
Don't talk to the audience as if we're 2 year olds getting read a bedtime story. The tone of voice of the narrators is what you'd expect if they were reading a nursery story to children. It was really annoying and borderline condescending.
The information was good, but now way would I listen to it again. I'll read it myself if I want to remember something from the book.
Great analogy for dancers throughout as well. Provides various options for guidelines and always reminds you that each pregnancy is unique and you need to follow what feels right for you.
