I find the format of the book so intriguing. I tend to have a pretty high level of medical knowledge floating around in my brain, but I definitely do not claim to know or understand everything- and that certainly goes for medical realm of pregnancy. Yet this book works to combine the scientific and medical sphere of pregnancy with the intimate and personal sphere of motherhood in a way that turns the uncomfortable into a much more approachable object to tackle. Additionally, the layout of the table of contents in this book is fantastic. I know that I was a little intimidated by the length of the book and the amount of information contained inside, but with the layout of the contents, it is easy to scan through and find exactly what you may be currently most concerned about.
I think what is so unique and important about this book is the way it could potentially have the ability to relieve the already rampant stress of pregnancy, and certainly in high-risk pregnancies. When you have questions, you want them answered and answered well, and this book offers you the opportunity to have those answers immediately. It is obvious that this book is designed to be a guide of sorts, made to assist possible pre-term mothers learn, adjust, and grow with their infants by allowing them peace of mind and heart. I will most definitely be forwarding this wonderful book on to those I love, so they can experience the calm this book will surely bring by offering knowledge in an arena where, oftentimes, that very knowledge is hidden from sight or played down.
