"I find this DVD a valuable resource for expectant parents. It covers all the basics plus many practical issues not included in traditional childbirth preparation classes. The section about life at home with a new baby and adjustment to parenthood is excellent. It can be too cute at times in the cartoon segments, so concentrate on the message instead of the messenger."

"My brother and his wife are expecting for the first time, so I thought it would be nice to send them this DVD collection. I don't have any children, but (after waching the DVD's first) I thought the entire series was AMAZING!! The mothers-to-be, fathers-to-be, doctors and "Wendy" were all extremely helpful in describing what happens during the 1st, 2nd, 3rd trimesters, the actual childbirth process & the first three months after childbirth. A "must-see" for all expecting mothers and fathers!!"

"This DVD or VHS presentation is cute and has some good basic information. There are some definite biases presented that could flavor the way expectant parents see childbirth. Twice, information is given and it is not accurate to 2002. These two pieces of information include the mechanism of episiotomy and the rate of cesarean section. The DVD informs parents that the lack of an episiotomy may cause tears, when research shows evidence to the opposite. And the cesarean section is presented at 20% when in reality, it is more like 25%. Unfortunately there is no reference to the power that women have to raise their pain tolerance through comfort measures, all women are shown to labor in bed and no mother pushes in an upright position. Not a surprise that all 3 women shown op for an epidural, two have oxygen and one has a cesarean.
