There's no question that a vegetarian or vegan diet is just as nutritionally sound during pregnancy as one that includes animal protein. In fact, vegetarian nutrition offers pregnant women valuable health benefits that you simply won't find in a non-vegetarian diet, such as higher levels of folic acid, lower cholesterol, and an abundant variety of essential minerals, vitamins, and nutrients. Whether you are already vegetarian or you simply want to reduce the amount of meat in your diet, making the right dietary choices to support you and your baby is the key to a safe, healthy pregnancy. With this unique and accessible handbook, filled with all the information required to make a balanced judgement about you pregnancy diet, you can be confident that your vegetarian pregnancy will be wonderfully beneficial for both you and your baby.

While this book gives a good treatise on pregnancy nutrition, and some other information on pregnancy, it has several flaws. Firstly, much of the information is aimed at the newly vegetarian - with good reason, because while the author acknowledges that most vegetarians know this information, she has to be sure that everyone is working with the same foundation. However, this basic information and repetition means a lot of glazing over. Second, she attempts to organize the book into pregnancy by month; while a laudable goal, most of the issues do not fit discretely into specific weeks, so the entire book really should be read. Third, her contrived Question and Answer format leads to so much repetition, I feel like I am being hit in the head with a hammer. Other than those flaws, this book is very approachable and easily understood. The best part: it is an incredible prop for people to see and flip through, so they worry less about YOUR pregnancy, even if you feel you already know the information (though I did learn some things). Leave it out in view so others will feel more confident in your health.
