Excellent - Sheila Kitzinger is a social anthropologist and writes this book from a very woman-centred perspective. Overall, I found this book to be informative and reassuring. I don't know if I'd say this is exactly a complete book on Pregnancy, but it is very thorough on childbirth, mentioning all the different options women have today from a hospital birth to birthing center to home birth, and ways to prepare for each and what to expect during and after. Dec 04, 2008 Rebekah rated it it was amazing. Shelves: pregnancy-and-birth.

A classic for all new parents, this book inspires, informs and reassures. From conception through to birth, Sheila Kitzinger describes what to expect and prepares parents-to-be for the physical changes ahead. Now includes information on Caesarean births, the birthing sling, sex during pregnancy, and nutrition. Encourages expectant parents to be actively involved in decisions about their antenatal care and birth method.
Looking back, I find it interesting I read this book exactly one month before I found out I was pregnant!
