"This book is a useful general resource for all healthcare professionals, but it would be used best by a practicing registered dietitian nutritionist."
-- Amy Hess Fischl, MS RDN LDN BC-ADM CDCES (University of Chicago Medical Center) Doody's Review
This book is written for all healthcare professionals working with people with diabetes who intend to become pregnant or are already pregnant. Since the book's focus is nutrition in diabetes and pregnancy, I personally feel the content is more useful to registered dietitian nutritionists (RDNs) since they are the primary providers of medical nutrition therapy. However, I can certainly see this as a reference in a clinic or office that could be used by all healthcare professionals.
