Motherhood is amazing and filled with so many experiences. The Mommy MD Guides is a website and series of books created by various doctors who are also mothers and is a fantastic resource for women!
I have to say that it is so refreshing to have these guides and such great insight from highly respected women! Both The Mommy MD Guides site from MOMOSA Publishing, LLC and their books are fantastic!
My co-blogger, Jaime just happens to be pregnant and I happen to have a baby in her first year of life, so we were thrilled for the opportunity to do a joint review on two of Mommy MD Guide books: The Mommy MD Guide to Pregnancy & Birth as well as The Mommy MD Guide to Your Baby's First Year. Here is what we thought...
Jaime: "Going through pregnancy and birth can be a little nerve-wracking. Although I've gone through almost three pregnancies, I am constantly learning new things everyday. What I have really enjoyed about The Mommy MD Guide to Pregnancy & Birth is that I am able to gain more knowledge from Doctors who have gone through pregnancy and birth themselves. The book is divided into 43 chapters, one for each week of pregnancy and a few chapters about birth. Right now I am 34 weeks, and have been reading up on my baby's size, latest developments, as well as my own latest developments. It is reassuring to know that at this stage it is absolutely normal to not be able to tie my shoes. Just the other day I was feeling a little silly hopping around the living room trying to get my boots on! Overall, I have found myself delighting in this book and would recommend it to other moms!"
Me: One thing that I have noticed with kids is that no one is the same! Each and everytime I feel like I know it all and have gone through or seen all I need to, my kids show me that is just not true. That is why I think having guides and insight into the development of babies is great! The Mommy MD Guide to Your Baby’s First Year is filled with more than 900 tips and solutions to the many different challenges and joyous moments that can occur during your baby's first year! Topics that I really enjoyed reading and related to a lot right now included breastfeeding and getting your baby to sleep through the night. In fact, after completely reading the book, I find myself going back to it over and over again to reference and look things up. I just feel really confident knowing who the information is coming from and completely trust the knowledge and understanding that these mommy doctors have shared!
Overall, Jaime and I both thoroughly enjoyed The Mommy MD Guides and would highly recommend them to others!
