..explained in detail in eloquent and simple words.
A book to be recommended for every couple… amply illustrated by colour diagrams and colour photographs that make the reading much easier.’
–Sir Sabaratnam Arulkumaran, Professor and Head of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, St George’s, University of London
…welcome this much needed book in a country where the largest number of babies are born every year and with a large number of women and families bedevilled by myths… bossing of elders… and lack of education. It reassures, influences and inspires.
For all women, pregnant or wanting to become pregnant and their husbands, this book is a must read…’
–Prof. Shirish Sheth, Past President, FIGO
