‘Informed Is Best: How To Spot Fake News About Your Pregnancy, Birth And Baby’ by Amy Brown is an engaging book that I struggled to put down. After reading just a few pages, I was instantly hooked—which is surprising given that the main topic is about research!

Each of the 18 chapters are clear and easy to understand, and the use of real-life examples throughout removes the challenges of understanding complex research methods and terminology. Each chapter concludes with a short snappy summary of its content comprising a quick guide on staying informed. At the end of the book, there is a shortlist of reliable sources, such as websites and blogs, available for readers to refer to further trustworthy information, making it a valuable resource that readers can keep coming back to in the future.

Amy has written a book that is essential reading for all pregnant and new parents, and anyone providing care to women and their families, during pregnancy, birth, and the postnatal period. In fact, I could even go as far as to say that it serves as a useful tool for anybody who uses the internet, reads newspapers or consumes other types of media.
