Very Positive and Supportive

If any of my friends or family read this review, don't worry, I'm not pregnant. I wanted to read this book to gain any additional information about labor and delivery on an emotional scale if there was any to be had. Happily, there was.

This book was fun, very upbeat, and yet still very down to Earth. I really enjoyed it and I desperately hope I remember I have it if I ever have children or if my best friend gets pregnant. I think it would be very helpful in prep and keeping calm.

There were parts that I felt were excessive based on my own needs so that will not drive my rating down at all. For Example, there is sn entire chapter on mocktails. As someone that doesn't drink and doesn't get the addictive quality of alcohol consumption, that chapter left me bored. I am glad it is there for drinkers though and I hopenit serves them very well.

It's a fun, quick book. It keeps things light, realistic, and informative. It also enables you to ask questions, especially on an emotional level and deal with the answers. It's a very good book and easily a favorite to me.
