   Don’t waste your money
The book was originally titled "The Blair Witch's" book. She says she doesn't eat eggs but then has recipes with eggs and animal fats. I thought this book would have month to month recipes, but instead it's mostly written by Jessica Alba, who has a team of chefs cooking for her, no doubt.

   Not helpful if you are alive in the 21st century
Did you know it's good to drink water? If you're tired, take a nap. What you learn in this book will change the way you think about pregnancy. I thought the reviewer who mentioned an avocado toast recipe was exaggerating, but there is actually a "recipe" that says to cut up some avocado and put it on toast, said James. I've also found that Real Food for Mother and Baby was more detailed and in-depth, and I actually learned something.

   Most of the info you can find online
The recipes were very basic and anyone who cooks can probably make them, even if they are not. For me, the recipes just didn't fit my lifestyle or cravings.

   Not practical, not accurate
She also criticizes processed foods, but living without them is not realistic if you have a job. If you crave Skittles while you are pregnant, try not to eat them. Think about each of your cravings and how it will affect your baby. In other words, unless you are perfect and never touch candy, make sure you feel guilty because you are hurting your baby. Thanks for the trip, Kate. There is absolutely no evidence that GMOs are harmful.

   A little snobby for me... I like meat and carbs, I’m pregnant
The book is best suited for those who are not big meat eaters and concerned with mitigating weight gain. While I have a lot of the helpful information, not everything in it is realistic for some women and those who find it should consider that it's one persons perspective. If you can't afford to eat organic everything and don't want to beat yourself up for eating gluten, this book is not for you.

   Save your money
Only a few people seemed to enjoy the book, and I have a very loyal dog who ate it. Or he also thought it was condescending and had very few recipes that he could actually eat, he said. After all, he's got my back, Tunick said.

   Easy Recipes! Love this book
Favorite book during pregnancy? Has a mix of what's going on week-by-week with baby and some really simple recipes to focus on eating, Melissa said. The recipes are super simple and don't take that long to put together - this is exactly what I needed. I've found a couple of really healthy 'go-to' recipes that I'll put together on Sunday for the next couple of days, I'm told. My husband also likes them.

   Very basic recipes - perhaps good for those new to the kitchen
This book was recommended to me by my doctor. Basic, easy to follow instructions, and very useful. Sometimes it is just to check in and see what the author suggests as good, balanced nutrition for pregnant women, but really, the recipes are bland and a snooze. Husband and I like to cook and are comfortable in the kitchen so we see most of this as things we would just put together, she said. So, for those who don't cook a lot and want some easy steps to eat healthy, I could see this as beneficial for gaining comfort and confidence in the kitchen. I'm not a huge fan of the rest of the recipes.

   Good recipes with a mixture of ones I wouldn’t try
I was excited to get this book. I'm trying for a baby and I wanted to start early with getting the best food. Some of the recipes are on my list to try, others I would have to settle for a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Yes, it's not bad, but not great. Yes, I'm a picky eater, so I'm looking forward to trying some of the recipes in here. Some of the photos are scattered throughout the book.

   The recipes are organized by dish like a regular cookbook
I wanted this to be a go-to during my pregnancy, but it was less than I hoped. It has disappointed me that it won't have full meal plans for each week, to take some of the guesswork out of food prep. It doesn't give you exact recommendations on how much you need to eat, nor does it provide a general guide to how much of each nutrient you need. The recipes are organized by dish, making them easy to find.
