When I found out I was pregnant I was ecstatic but also uncertain of what to expect in the next 9 months.GoodReads, Nadia
How To Stay Fit and Healthy During Pregnancy is an insightful handbook that helped me guide through my first three months so far. As a first time mother-to-be I find the tips on how to exercise and keeping up my fitness very useful.
There's so much information on the internet on what to eat and what to avoid eating while pregnant. The lists are long and often contradictory. Having a reliable source of information is important and that's what you'll find in this book.
The book also touches on how to prepare for birth and provides some useful basic information.
I struggled to concentrate on reading in the past two months due to bad morning sickness, but the colourful photographs and pretty layout make this a comfortable and easy read that I would recommend.

Very practical and complete guide, easy to read. Easy for quick consultation. It is very good because it has an integral need of health, since it deals not only with the physical, but also of the emotional. It also deals with more aspects of the day-to-day of pregnancy, which just makes it more practical and complete.NetGalley, Rebeca Nuñez
