Some of the concerns I've seen posted about this book such as 'Oh, this book mentions too many bad things that could happen to their fetus that might worry new mothers (or fathers) too much.' however it clearly mentions in the book that the statistics about the 'certain' dangers are very low and that most likely you don't have to worry. Most of those warnings you can just take as a grain of salt.
If you're a first time parent I strongly recommend this book. If you're a second, or third, or fourth and so on time parent I would recommend it, but actually it might not be necessary since experience is actually the best teacher, but it also wouldn't hurt to read about other people's experiences. I also highly recommend this book to people of high risk pregnancies since it's packed with helpful tips and preventive techniques to lower the risk of 'bad' things from happening.
I hope you enjoyed this review of 'What to Expect When You're Expecting' and I'm looking forward to see some of your own comments on the book in the comment section. As for next week's post, be looking forward to a little fantasy!
