"Start now -- when the time comes, there'll be no time ;-)."

"I like Penelope Leach's books, myself."

"I constantly read up on baby care, I figure the more I know the better off I'll be."

"If you don't already have it, I would suggest the 'What to Expect When You're Expecting' book. My doctor provided me with a copy and I think it's great. But, opinions will differ, browse through it at the store if you like."

It depends on what type of information you are looking for. If you want to be informed for your own knowledge and so you can make informed choices about your pregnancy and birth then books like What to Expect When You're Expecting wont help much. Try "The Thinking Woman's Guide to a Better Birth" by Henci Goer or "Pregnancy, Childbirth, and the Newborn" by Simkin, Whalley, and Keppler. You might search for doulas in your area and ask if they have a book lending library, most do.

I have to say that hands-down, the most entertaining book on pregnancy I have read is The Girlfriend's Guide to Pregnancy by Vicky Iovine. It is very factual but keeps you laughing and it's not as intimidating as other books. For a first p/g, definitely go for that! Also, The Unofficial Guide to Pregnancy is great to have as a resource, and it answered many of my questions, but it's pretty boring. I find that the internet can be more helpful than books. My favorite site for pregnancy is and there's also great discussion forums at

what to expect when your expecting is definitely the best for info. as far as wanting to laugh instead of screaming at the father of your fetus, belly laughs by jenny mcCarthy is the best book to read.


read what to expect when your expecting .. i read that book and now i know like just about everything about pregnancy it helped me out alot and made me less worried when something new happened to my body.


I would say the dictionary. It is important to understand birthing terminology and phrases like "push" and "almost there." Good luck on this exciting adventure!
