This audiobook is filled with 900+ tips that doctors, who are also mothers, used during their pregnancies and births. They're experts squared!
To create this audiobook, we spoke with 60 doctors who are also mothers; we call them Mommy MD Guides. We spoke with many Mommy MD Guides who are still in the trenches with their babies. Some of them were even pregnant when we talked. We also spoke with Mommy MD Guides whose babies are grown up with babies of their own. They are Grammy MD Guides! Combined, these physicians have centuries of experience as doctors, and among them they have 146 children.
The 900+ reassuring, trusted, and often even humorous tips in this audiobook are presented in the Mommy MD Guides' own words, and each tip is clearly attributed to the doctor who lived it. Because doctors so often see the things that can go wrong, they try to do everything as right as they can for their own health and for that of their families. Physicians are a healthier group than the whole. Even though women physicians sometimes suffer through things that take time and that affect them alone, pregnancy is different. Most doctors go the extra mile to take care of their own bodies while they are carrying their babies. The Mommy MD Guide to Pregnancy and Birth offers tips on both the challenges and the celebrations of pregnancy. You will discover how Mommy MD Guides made it through pesky pregnancy challenges, such as morning sickness, back pain, and heartburn, and you will also learn how they enjoyed wonderful celebrations of pregnancy, such as telling their partners the good news, baby showers, and meeting their babies for the first time.
This audiobook is a reassuring look at pregnancy that is filled with practical, actionable tips that work. After all, if a physician juggling a busy practice and a hectic home, or a resident working 110 hours a week used a tip, no doubt it worked. And if it worked for her, it will likely work for you, too.

Stopped half way through the book. The information presented is very generic, and most of the "tips" aren't really tips, just quotes from the "mommy MDs" and many of them reveal the women to be unreliable sources of info.
I suspected I had made a mistake with this book from the introduction where their main thesis is that MDs are smarter than regular people and their reminiscences about their pregnancies will be golden nuggets of wisdom for the "little people."
I'm sorry, but some doctors are the stupidest smart people I know.
The last straw was the narrator who kept mispronouncing everything from town names to medical terms. If I had to hear her say "digestive trak" one more time... UGH!
"Informative well narrated book for all moms!"
The book was filled with great information and easy to listen to. Well written and narrated.
I like all the characters. I did not have a favorite.
Counting the number of times a baby would get up in the middle of the night. Or losing count of it.
All moms face the same struggles including doctors with their own children.
"It was OK..."
This had sent helpful tips, but it felt more like a lot of opinions without facts.
"Listen with your partner"
Each chapter is a different month of the pregnancy. We listened to many chapters more than once because there's a lot of information here and a lot of decisions need to be made during pregnancy. Sometimes we'd pause listening and talk about our choices. Sometimes we'd pause and just laugh. Often we found humor in the doctors stories, which eased a lot of concerns. We also enjoyed the narrator's humor and the kindness that was evident in her voice. Looking forward to listening to book 2 as soon as our baby is born...which is coming up soon!
"Not the best"
The information is quite common, I did not learn much. The voice of the narrator is quite irritating, as some of the reviewers mentioned. I would get annoyed listening to her. The book gives you advice from different doctors with varied outlooks.
Love it so.far big help for this grandma who's forgotten a lot !! Well worth the price
"A great audio book for all mothers!"
As a mother I found this very helpful. The narration was very clear and concise.
