Mommy MD Guide to Pregnancy and Birth AND Mommy MD Guide to Your Baby’s First Year by Rallie McAllister

Disclosure: I received the books in exchange for an honest review.

Summary: The Mommy MD Guides cover common pregnancy and parenting concerns and then are followed up with quotes from actual doctors who are moms. Each book has more than 900 tips from 60 or 70 doctors. 

The books are separated into pregnancy weeks (Pregnancy) and baby’s age in months (for First Year book.) MANY different topics are covered and you can find them via the index as well.

Many people think that doctor parents must know what they are doing all the time but that isn’t true. Doctor parents worry just as much as we do and they have trouble making parenting decisions as much as we do too. So reading these books was a nice change as you get to see what doctor parents really think about. I also like that some of the Mommy doctors have young children right now while others have adult children so you are getting more than one generation’s advice.

It’s a great book for when you don’t have lots of time to read long chapters but on the other hand, if there is a specific problem you are having and you’ve tried some ideas already, the book isn’t likely to have another solution. It’s mostly like chatting with a bunch of other moms.

The website has other resources as well including a blog and a questions section.
