Good nutrition is of unquestioned importance in providing for optimal maternal health and thus for optimal intrauterine environment. The author cites evidence for deleterious effects caused by deficiencies on the one hand and excessive intakes on the other and points out that these effects differ in various animal species as well as in the human. Differences of opinion are documented and at the end of each chapter these differences are generally resolved by the author's summary of his own views and the consensus of those of other authorities. The bibliography is quite extensive.
