Not into it

I'm not pregnant. I enjoy researching pregnancy, labor, and delivery in my spare time. It's fun for me so I've read a lot of these books.

This particular book is very bias towards the perfect female form and fairly preachy. They clearly have a mind set early on that you cannot be your own person and have a baby. I wanted more science than that.

I understand that being healthy gives your baby better chances but they talk for ages over the same details without giving advice that equates to more than "get fit".

They say things like "don't wait to have a baby" but tell the reader to get fit like it doesn't take a long time to get fit.

I'm just annoyed with the whole thing. I'm DNF'ing this thing because I don't want to listen to someone harp on and on about how people shouldn't be anything other than thin, they shouldn't take medications, they shouldn't have any mental health problems whatsoever. Like damn, who should be having kids then?

I picked this up so that I could learn more about the various stages of pregnancy from experts. I did not pick this up to be lectured. I'm not into it.
