Great having daily information on progress, easy to navigate to the correct day/weekof pregnancy. Fold over part of cover creased easily but otherwise good quality. Nice size, easy to carry around, nice cover & easy to navigate via colour coding. Not seen anything else with a daily break down, it gives an efficient way to navigate to correct day etc. this is quite unusual. Good amount of information to refer to, good websites to refer to although some were inactive or American, something that can’t be updated in a book in print which is a shame…  Good to keep track of my pregnancy and to find out what is going on with my body and if it’s normal :). What I liked about this book was the navigation, easy to get to week/day of pregnancy. I would personally want to only spend 7 or 8 pound at most on a book of this nature given the amount of free info you can get via registering to various weekly email services online. I would continue to use this book but not purchase as feel price is high. I would recommend this book as it is a good book, easy to pick up, bite size information rather than too much in one go, easy navigation, great to be broken into weekly or daily info as it doesn’t become overwhelming, that’s my favourite thing about the book.  Would recommend it to anyone wanting a simple book with a daily bite of information about their pregnancy.

I thought the look and style was great and fitted in my handbag great so I could read on the go. This was a good quality book. Liked the look and th elayout of the book.  I have not really seen any other books that are similar to this one. I did find this book very helpful and a good reference guide.  I really liked the size as handy to keep in your handbag and refer to when needed. I thought this book was well written, well laid out and very helpful. This is good value for money. I will continue to use this book. I have already recommended this book to my friend. I think the day to day read is brilliant therefore you can take 5 mins out of your day to read it. Jenna Harris

Its compact size makes it appear as a good potential gift for mums and dads-to-be.  Good colour and design on the cover so it attracts the eye. Easy to read and follow.  However, not very comprehensive and some of the points made are not in logical order. This book can be used as a supplement to other pregnancy books as a novelty item, but should not be seen as a ‘bible’ to pregnancy. As mentioned, the book is not comprehensive in content.  However, as a supplemental book on pregnancy, it is a good and easy read. I was able to read this book in a couple of days although there is nothing in it that cannot be found in other pregnancy books. Small and compact. Attractive colour and design on the cover. The two colour arrangement in the inside is quite quirky. There are thousands of pregnancy books on themarket. This book is not as comprehensive in content as some of the other books– this is obvious merely from comparing the sizes of the books. After having read this book from cover to cover, I didn’t again return to this book as a point of reference, as some of the other books I own on pregnancy were much more comprehensive for this purpose. I liked the section on each‘day’ on "advice from the trenches”. It was light but relevant reading. Personally I feel this book lacks depth and comprehensiveness in the content. I like that it is an easy read, but it is not a reference guide. For its price, it is probably only just worth the money (I would prefer to pay a couple of pounds less for it). There are many books about pregnancy on the market, and given this book wouldn’t answer all questions, and would need to be supplemented with a more comprehensive book, I would be reluctant to spend over £10 for it. It is probably a cute novelty gift for a mum-to-be, but it is not the essential guide to pregnancy that a mother to be would want. Easy to read, great novelty gift, but not a comprehensive guide to pregnancy. Geeta Rupareli
