Better than the more expensive books
I found this book to be clear and to the point. She explained the basic things to know including any medical terms in an easy to understand way. The videos in the book go beyond what all the other books can offer and they help you learn a lot quickly and not be afraid. I highly recommend you get it before you have your baby and then just use it as a reference after.
