We found Vegan Pregnancy Survival Guide to be both and interesting and informative book. It is written in a light-hearted conversational manner, which make the reading more enjoyable.

In Vegan Pregnancy Survival Guide, Sayward suggests that women began planning for a vegan pregnancy even before they get pregnant, and then walks the future mother through the various stages of pregnancy up through delivery, including such subjects as: nutrition and cravings, troubleshooting potential trimester problems, preparing for labor and hospital stay, social stuff, and the actual delivery. She then goes on the postpartum issues, including: life with baby and nutrition for vegan breastfeeding. The only thing we disagreed with was her discussion on placentophagy.

We recommend Vegan Pregnancy Survival Guide for every young woman as a helpful guide for a future or pending pregnancy.
