Definitely recommend

This book has been very useful. I have listened to most of it at this point and have gone back to different parts to reference them again. The sections are well labeled and easy to navigate. I also downloaded what to expect when you're expecting, but I preferred this book and stopped listening to that one.

Much preferred listening rather than reading.

Being pregnant with my first child I have felt an incredible amount of “mom gilt” already. I felt obligated to at least listen to this book since I am a patient at mayo and received a free copy with my first prenatal visit. It was much better than What to Expect When You Are Expecting (would not recommend that to anyone, unless I wanted them to hate themselves). The content of this book was delivered in a somewhat dry manor which I think might have aided in not causing as much “mom stress” but it did make it hard to get through the 20 hours listening time. Overall I feel better for having read/listened to it.
