I have expected so much more of this book, but it is pretty basic. It is good for the first time young mothers, who have no clue of what pregnancy is about and have not attended any classes or seen a midwife. Most of the information in this book is pretty well known to most women and apart from the nice pictures I did not find it terribly useful. A bit of everything and very superficial. Beautifully illustrated, though :)
