What our readers say:
Mum’s guide to pregnancy is a must read for any expectant mum. As a GP myself, I thought I knew what to expect when I found myself pregnant with my first child. However, Maria’s book was full of practical advice and personal tips that I found invaluable. Reading her book is like listening to your best friend telling you everything you need to know and more about pregnancy.
Dr Fiona Raciti, GP, first time mum/pregnant with her first child
My wife is a doctor herself, so when she became pregnant with our first child I felt like we were in good hands. I read Mum’s guide to pregnancy and was surprised how much I had to learn! It gave me a good understanding of what my wife was going through and what to expect in the pregnancy, in a way that I could process in my own time. Her book covers everything, meaning my to do list has doubled in size!
