Nervous about giving birth? Here’s the best guide for you.
This awesome book has a plethora of birth stories that make up the first half of the book, while the latter half is all about empowering women with information on the birth process, the mind-body connection and real talk about what birth feels like. In the end, the rah-rah, you-can-do-it tone leaves you feeling far less scared and way more capable.
If you’re looking for a cut-to-the-chase rundown of pregnancy symptoms, your changing body and your baby’s development, look no further.
The Mayo Clinic Guide to a Healthy Pregnancy is a matter-of-fact, easy-to-flip-through-and-refer-back-to resource that isn’t bogged down with extraneous details or unnecessary what-if worries. And, because the doctors behind the book are also parents, you know you’re getting an authoritative, accurate and realistic take on pregnancy, birth and newborns.
When you find out you're pregnant, it can feel like you're suddenly bombarded with advice and warnings from your doctor, family members, and friends ( not to include the online gyaan you stumble upon). Not only can it feel like a lot of noise, but a little terrifying, too.
If you're looking for a reassuring yet still medically accurate and up-to-date pregnancy book, The New Rules of Pregnancy is like the modern woman's What to Expect.
One of the best guides about the emotional side of pregnancy.
In this book, you’ll get a healthy and friendly dose of non-judgemental advice from medical and psychological experts and moms on subjects like early pregnancy anxiety, feelings of guilt and body-change struggles.

Whether you’re predisposed to postpartum depression or anxiety or simply a mom-to-be who recognizes the importance of your emotional health, this book is a must-read.
Best pregnancy book for all the details.
This is not a rose-coloured, sunshiny and idealized look at your nine-month journey.

It’s also a guide to changes you can’t see.
A great supplement to the boring pregnancy books that are likely already stacked high on your nightstand. It’s fun, lighthearted and direct, and it still has a good amount of must-know information. Best funny but informative pregnancy book!
