From the opening chapter, "Signs and Symptoms of Pregnancy," to the final one, "The Newborn Baby," the third edition of "Expectant Motherhood" is the most complete book of its kind that I have read. To the large number of prospective mothers whose understanding of the biology of conception and the processes of childbirth needs strengthening, this book can be highly recommended. This book also answers fully most of the questions regarding diet, hygiene, and discomforts of pregnancy that might be asked. The busy practitioner, generalist, or obstetrician, therefore, can save much valuable time by referring to this easily-read book, so well directed, to the lay person.
