Nurse Barb’s Personal Guide to Pregnancy by Basic Health Publications covers a different facet of pregnancy—from coming to grips with the prospect of motherhood to what to expect in each trimester. Straightforward advice on how to handle nausea and morning sickness, to exercise, sex, and travel are all given. Nurse Barb has also incorporated a hospital packing list and kick-count sheet to help new mothers prepare for delivery and track their baby’s progress.
Why we like it: Comprehensive quick-read to pregnancy. Perfect accompaniment to more lengthy pregnancy books and its compact size fits perfectly in a handbag.
