This lively and readable book provides basic pregnancy and preconception advice for lesbians and their partners. Concentrating on topics of special interest to lesbian families--such as choosing an anonymous donor, drafting agreements with known donors, and defining the nonbiological mother's parenting role--it also suggests how and when to inseminate and walks the reader through a normal full-term pregnancy and delivery. Despite its title, however, the book cannot really substitute for a comprehensive guide to pregnancy along the lines of What to Expect When You're Expecting, and the breezy section on labor will be of little use when you feel mysterious twinges in your 39th week (or your 29th). This would be best as a first book to buy when considering pregnancy, or as an addition to other, more detailed guides. (However, the section on sex during pregnancy does provide lesbian-specific advice unlikely to be found anywhere else.) --Regina Marler (amazon reviewer)
