Info on the survey:
Aside from the books made available (largely through information in Pregnancy Packs) by Bounty and Emma’s Diary, the information mums have given us shows that there are a wide range of books available and the choice made by mums is varied. Of the 250 mums we surveyed more than 60 different books were mentioned.
Miriam Stoppard is the most popular author that mums turn to for information on pregnancy.
Our surveys showed that 8% of mums specifically stated that they did not use any book during pregnancy whilst another 13% either did not use one or did not find any useful.
