From Library Journal:

Many books claim to be written especially for various minority groups. While these are well composed, their information is really quite generic and applicable to people of any race or creed. This is not the case, however, with Waiting for Beb. Alcaniz, an award-winning health journalist and the Florida correspondent for Radio Bilingue, does an exceptional job of providing thorough and accessible medical information while still catering to Latinas. Alcaniz includes Spanish terminology and specifically addresses herbs, foods, beverages, customs, and social beliefs indigenous to Latino culture. Her comprehensive text spans from preconception to post-labor and includes sections for the father-to-be, checklists, questions to ask the doctor, a section describing insurance options, and a really well-written portion on gestational diabetes and other pregnancy-related conditions that affect Hispanic women in particular. Practical but not preachy, this is sure to be of enormous help to mothers-to-be, especially first-time mothers. Suitable for general, consumer health, and Hispanic American collections at most public libraries. [A Spanish-language edition titled Esperando a Mi Beb will be published in a Random House Espanol trade paperback. ISBN 1-4000-181-1. $17.95.-Ed.]-Nicole A.
