This book was the best information I could find when I was expecting my first child! The pictures are amazing, and the whole book is full of very usefull information for a mother to be and even a father to be! My Husband read the book as well and loved it! I have recommended this book to all the expectant mothers I have meet and would recommend it to anyone Mom or Dad that is expecting or trying for a baby!
