Husband-Coached Childbirth (Fifth Edition): The Bradley Method of Natural Childbirth

Posted

Pros: pro natural

Cons: dry

This book helped me decide that I wanted a natural birth and that I wanted to take Bradley method classes.  However, I since have read others that present the same information in a more engaging way and that use more inclusive language.  I think it's a good read if you want to know about why natural birth is a good idea and how the Bradley method came about, but it's not a manual of "how-to" have a natural birth.  (I didn't know this when I first bought the book.)

Pros: very educational

Cons: creates a little fear

Every woman should read this book just so they can understand the healthy approach to child birth and the risks of intervention.  It's important information that women should know, and I don't know any other good source like this.  That being said, this book does create a little fear in women of doctors and hospitals, and motivation based on fear isn't healthy.  Keep that in mind when you read the book.
