Good advice if not a bit extreme

I read this book at the start of my second pregnancy as I did want to have a healthier (read less fat) pregnancy. I found that a lot of her recommendations, although probably sound, did not take into account real life constraints e.g. the cost of refurbishing your house with low VOC emitting everything... Hence she kind off lost me at getting my house paint tested for lead, but I kept reading and overall I thought it was a positive book, but probably only practical if you are the stay at home wife of a celebrity.

Some interesting information but over the top

I agree with the review: 'Good advice if not a bit extreme'
It is a bit much...if you're a pretty healthy person, I would imagine you have a grip on a balanced diet and curbing cravings. As far as the environmental considerations (like the VOCs etc), get a few house plants, open a window and do not live in fear. It's just not practical unless you have mega amounts of money. And don't forget, babies have been born in dire times...war, depressions-- you don't need a bunch of small worries niggling at you.You are already strong enough.

Great Book

Would you listen to Yeah Baby! again? Why?

Yes. There is soon much information in this book and it's very easy to listen to as well as the least judgement book I have listened too.

What did you like best about this story?

It's pretty much just the facts and there is no judgement.

What about Jillian Michaels’s performance did you like?

It was very relatable and she didn't sound like a robot reading the book.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No

Any additional comments?

It is a great book. I enjoyed listening to it.

overall great usable advice!

I loved the dietary and nutrition guidelines in the book! So far, it is guiding me on a super healthy pregnancy journey. 17 weeks right now. This is my second and I do have to leave one criticism. The breastfeeding advice is not great if you actually want to be successful. Having done extended breastfeeding, I feel I am knowledgeable and there were just a couple things she mentioned that were incorrect.

I loved this book!

I had never seen or heard the author before, and I'm not much into fitness, so I was a bit skeptical, but I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Now I'm interested in hearing more from her! The book is broken down for each of the 4 trimesters and includes health, fitness, environment, etc. So much info given! and plenty of laugh out loud moments. I really felt connected to her experience, which was extremely comforting.

My favorite "prepare for baby" book!

"Yeah Baby!" has by far been my favorite "prepare for baby book"! I started it at the beginning of my second trimester and my only regret is that I didn't start it sooner! Jillian did a phenomenal job of just giving the facts so that as a mom, you can make the best decisions for you. While she did that, she expressed "no judgement" and still intertwined her own personal story, which is what kept me listening during every free minute I had - I wanted to continue to hear about her journey! This was definitely a "softer" side to Jillian, and although I was terrified at first that I would be hounded about nutrition and exercise, that was not the tone at all. Those things were all encouraged, but it really came down to taking care of yourself and doing what's best for you! I HIGHLY recommend to all new (or repeat) mamas out there! Thanks, Jillian!

Intro to Pregnancy

what is really enjoyed about this book is that even though Jillian didn't go through pregnancy herself she did however have access to the best professional advice from nutrition to medical etc which is used as the main info throughout this book.
A bonus is the exercise plan by week although a bit awkward to follow .
It's good to read before getting pregnant and I believe some sound advice after birth too.

A must read/hear - best guide out there regardless of where you’re at on the journey

Regardless of the stage your at in your pregnancy journey be it family planning or pregnant this book gave you the information that you needed to make good decisions and put your mind at ease.
beautifully written and narrated and hands down one of the simplest and most comprehensive guides out there. Big thanks to Jillian’s yeah baby team, I finally fell lest terrified of the thought of building our little family.
