Pregnancy is a Real Mother By Jeffrey L. Zweig, MD Review
Pregnancy is a Real Mother
By Jeffrey L. Zweig, MD
Want a book that is more “personal” than other books on the subject? Want a book on pregnancy that is easy to read? Looking for a book that is a “tell all” about pregnancy? Want to laugh and be amused by a book on pregnancy? If so, Pregnancy a Real Mother is the book for you. It is one of the most fascinating and captivating books published on the subject in over 20 years.
The title of the book says it all: a book with its own “personality” written by an Ob-Gyn who has delivered over 8,000 babies over 40 years of practice experience. Dr. Zweig’s goal in writing this book is to “answer all the questions” about pregnancy that are typically asked on a daily basis. The book starts out on the same journey of pregnancy that the expectant parents begin: from the positive pregnancy test to labor and delivery to newborn care.
All the technical information is presented but this book is different from all other books on pregnancy with:
1. Over 100 pictures of patients and nurses during their pregnancy, labor and postpartum
2. Anecdotes of real events that are tied to the information being presented
3. Doses of “humor” to keep the reader smiling and giggling You will enjoy reading the medical explanations of most of the “Old Wives Tales” near the end of the book. “Old Wives Tales” are followed by “Old Obstetrician Tales: “25 separate stories of actual patients with different pregnancy-related situations. These real life stories will intrigue you, make you laugh, bring you tears of joy and make you think.
Available in softcover, hardcover, e-book
Available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Xlibris
I recevied a complimentary copy.
About the author

He is skilled in obstetrics, with experience in ultrasound and high-risk pregnancies, gynecological surgeries, infertility and office gynecology, including treatment of menstrual disorders. He lives with his wife and family in Lawton, Okla. This is his first book.
Cassandra's Review- The perfect new book of reference for pregnancy help. The pages are filled to the max with so much information that it is going to make understanding the whole process so much easier. Of course it is not going to physically make the process better, but by mentally preparing you it can relieve some of the stress. I would suggest having a copy of this available for any person that is thinking of becoming pregnant or who is already. It even goes so far as including after delivery information. The illustrations are in black and white but are still very informative and detailed.
