Do any of you have recommendations for good pregnancy and birth books (or movies, websites, etc)?
I've read Pushed: The Painful Truth About Childbirth and Modern Maternity Care by Jennifer Block, which seemed like a really good introduction and overview to the issues surrounding modern childbirth (intervention cascades, VBAC resistance, midwife laws, and so forth). http://www.amazon.com/Pushed-Painful-Childbirth-Modern-Maternity/dp/0738211664/
Also I have a copy of Wise Woman Herbal for the Childbearing Year by Susun S. Weed. It was recommended to me by a local doula and it's got all kinds of information about herbs that are good and bad for fertility, pregnancy, breastfeeding, delivery, and newborn care, and more specific concerns like morning sickness. It's a little dated in some places (written in 1986) and I am confirming her advice with other sources, but I think she's pretty trustworthy and smart when it comes to herbal recommendations.
Also I ordered Ina May's Guide to Childbirth and Henci Goer's Thinking Woman's Guide to a Better Birth, but they haven't arrived yet.
So, any other suggestions? I am likely to have a hospital birth with a midwife, but I want it to be as gentle and low intervention as possible.
