This book has some excellent advice and information. The closest competitor that I can think of for this book is “What to Expect When You're Expecting.”
My fav has to be diagrams. They are awesome. The guide has actual-sized diagrams that depict the development of a baby from week 6 to 12, which is superb. I do not think that even the Internet can match this. Might be wondering what after week 12? Well, the guide has monthly drawings which have notings about scale. The book also talks about pain relief, both natural and medical. I have to say that this is the best explanation that I have come across. Other books, in comparison to Mayo’s guide, only talks about narcotic pain relievers that are commonly available.
PS: I did not go through every section, especially the C-Section since I was 100% sure on the way I would deliver my child.
