An outstanding blend of practical information and humor. Dr. DiLeo provides a wealth of useful information in a style that ensures a productive relationship between patient and physician. This book should be required reading for any patient who desires a low stress pregnancy. Dr. DiLeos insight on pregnancy is so valuable my plan is to recommend this superb contribution to the literature to all of my patients.

A wonderful, must-read book. Dr. DiLeo possesses an extremely rare combination of medical expertise, along with the ability to write in an informative and entertaining style, adding strong doses of compassion and wit. Ive read just about every pregnancy book available, and many make great bedtime reading (as the medical jargon and dry writing styles often put you right to sleep). This book will not only keep you awake, you will be compelled to read it from cover to cover while you celebrate the miracle of your pregnancy with your favorite book and doctor. Dr. DiLeo is a wonderful person, an excellent doctor, and a brilliant writer. If only he could deliver your baby too!
--Jeanine Cox, publisher and cofounder, BabyZone.com
As both a surgeon and first-time pregnant woman, I had the privilege of reading this book from both perspectives. Dr. DiLeo provides a guide that interweaves the parent with the obstetrician, the philosophy with the physiology, and the practical with the miraculous. This book is nothing less than a complete celebration of pregnancy and childbirth, but with all the facts. An entertaining read! True to its title, my anxiety as a prospective mother has been successfully tamed by the perspective Dr. DiLeo instills into even the serious complications that are a part of any thorough discussion of pregnancy. The surgeon in me applauds an important, informative book. The mother in me finds great comfort in the perspective provided, and the woman in me had great fun reading such a charming and funny book about such a serious subject.

Dr. DiLeos take on nutrition in pregnancy is right on. Finally, someone has decided to stop over-complicating the diet for normal pregnancy with ridiculous chapters on calorie counting that no one will follow. And finally, someone has decided to champion the role of nutrition and diet in complications unique to high-risk pregnancy. This is the pregnancy book that dietitians and nutritionists have been waiting for. And its fun too. Its a book thats both delicious and nutritious.
--Diana Davis, L.D.N., R.D., licensed nutritionist, holistic Registered Dietitian, certified American Dietetic Association, national lecturer on nutrition and neuro-linguistics
