    Pregnancy Magazines

    I can't read Cantonese, I would like to know which magazines in English provide adequate and useful pregancy information?

    Hi

    It is not a magazine but I LOVED the baby centre website - BabyCenter Australia - Information on conception, pregnancy, baby and toddler health. Lots of information and a week by week guide for your pregnancy - symptoms, size of baby and development. You can subscribe and receive these updates by email. So helpful especially for a first pregnancy.

    I have seen some pregnancy/parenting magazines at 360 supermarket but have never bought them. I really think that the internet has so many great sites on pregnancy and parenting (including the info on geobaby.com.).

    Also recommend www.parents.com

    thanks for your information!

    But i am used to reading magazines and newspaper rather browsing webpages.

    Any other suggestions?

    The Parents' Journal is a bilingual Hong Kong parenting magazine that covers pregnancy as well. It's ok.
    Otherwise I often see Australian and English pregnancy / parenting magazines in the supermarkets.

    I know you don't want to look online but I absolutely loved Baby Gaga when I was pregnant because the lady who wrote the articles is absolutely hilarious and the cartoons are great too.

    Yes, there is definitely a lack of English mags here. I miss reading magazines.
    If you don`t mind traveling to the airport, there are 3-4 different magazines there. I buy Parents (the other ones are pregnancy ones) for about $80 whenever I travel.

    Dymocks also sells magazines from Australia/US/UK etc... They have ALLLL kinds of magazines. I bought a pregnancy one when I first found out I was pregnant. I'm sure it was about $80 as well. But at least they're in Central rather than having to go out to the airport.
