America's favorite doctors Michael Roizen and Mehmet Oz cover pregnancy from conception to birth. Whether you're pregnant for the first time, are trying to start your family, or already have enough children to start your own basketball team, you're bound to have questions about what it means to be pregnant - and how you can increase your odds of having a healthy and happy pregnancy. But no matter how much you've read, watched, studied, or talked about this amazing biological journey, you have never heard anything like this.
In this groundbreaking book, Dr. Michael Roizen and Dr. Mehmet Oz act as mythbusters for the hundreds of questions surrounding pregnancy in the same scientific, informative, and entertaining ways that have made them America's Doctors. Here you'll learn everything you need to know about the miracles of fetal development, your health throughout the pregnancy, and providing the best possible environment for your growing child.

A Good Read if You are Having a Child

This book was well written. I felt like I had a good grasp of what to expect when having a baby just by reading this book. I think the only point I'd like to make is that the book left me a little worried and burdened about giving birth. Maybe I just wasn't ready to hear everything like it is. But I have to say that when I read Jenny McCarthy's book her humor made me lose any fear. Perhaps I just need a little more humor when it comes to something that makes me nervous.

I'm not the baby

Would you try another book from Michael F. Roizen and Mehmet C. Oz and/or Michael F. Roizen and Mehmet C. Oz ?

No

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

We were about to start trying for a baby and I liked the information in the book - especially about how the experience in utero affects gene expression, and the importance of having a healthy, low-stress lifestyle.

How could the performance have been better?

Don't talk to the audience as if we're 2 year olds getting read a bedtime story. The tone of voice of the narrators is what you'd expect if they were reading a nursery story to children. It was really annoying and borderline condescending.

Was YOU worth the listening time?

The information was good, but now way would I listen to it again. I'll read it myself if I want to remember something from the book.
