When I heard that I was pregnant, I was thrilled and called up my husband, and during our talk, I told him I am both excited and worried. A week later, the doorbell rang, and there was a parcel in my name. When I tore the cover, I realized I was holding Guide to Healthy Pregnancy by Mayo Clinic. My husband sent it. I love you sweetie for it!!!
Coming to the book, I agree it is dated, but it contains everything that a pregnant woman would ask for or worry about. The content is written in simple English and well organized. It does not fall into the traps that other books in the same genre fall. The book does not take sides or scares you.
The symptoms guide was handy and helped me avoid numerous unnecessary trips to the hospital. A good guide for pregnancy.
