Review quote

Caroline M. Apovian, MD, FACP, FACN "As nutrition specialists we often see postpregnancy patients and wish they had received good nutrition counseling prior to and during pregnancy. This guide should be on the bookshelves of all obstetricians as they counsel their pregnant patients. It is a must-have for all pregnant patients who want to have a healthy peripartum experience."
