I second Ina May's book. I read the 2nd half first and then am now reading the birth stories, an order which I preferred. It's really inspiring to read her words about birth and the whole process. I have not felt scared of the labor process, despite the horror stories everyone keeps telling me, so it really helped to read that book and feel that I didn't have a need for fear.
