I Just Ordered

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

 

I couldn't stop reading the little excerpts on Amazon! Can't wait to get it and my Husband says he will read it too!

 

I Also Just read Ina May's Guide to Childbirth. Loved it. Lots of Good Tips and Tricks and Mind sets.

 

Also have A Water Birth Book from my Midwife that I need to read as soon as I can get some time alone (In the bath with candle-light)

 

Loved the 'Business of being Born'!!! SO GOOD! Watch it over and over all the time on Netflix instant Watch.

 

Didn't Like so much 'Pregnant in America'

I'm currently reading INa May's Guide to Childbirth, DH is reading Husband Coached Childbirth.

I'm a bit afraid to watch The BUsiness of Being Born. I think the books leave me in apositive state of mind, I'm concerned that watching the visuals will leave me scared instead of empowered!

Wait! What's bad about strollers? Not being snarky, I really want to know. (Sorry to hijack thread.)

I think she's talking about baby wearing and probably AP'ing.  I dont use a stroller except when I exercising I use a jogging stroller and I have an umbrella stroller for the rare occasion that I go to the mall and for grandma to use.  Other than that, DS is, and has been since birth, either in a wrap, a ring sling, or an Ergo. I cant imagine trying to put DS in the seat of the grocery cart!  He'd try to grab everything and climb out and I'd never get any shopping done.  At least with him on my back I know how far he can reach.  just my 2cents.gif

I'm interested to hear more about this too! I'm thinking maybe it goes along with using a car seat to carry baby around versus child wearing? If so, I'm thinking to some extent it depends on your situation.

We live on a farm and raise horses - come August and more so in September, I'll be preparing horses for our yearly inspection. I'll be using a stroller for baby (outside the ring) while I'm in the ring with the horses. Other than that, I'll be babywearing, but I would not want to put my baby in the line of fire while working with young and sometimes excitable (read: stupid) horses. I've been charged, knocked down, and jumped on quite enough times to rule that out right now! lol.gif

"Pushed" by Jennifer Block.  Really easy to read and very well researched.  It prompted a great conversation with my OB about my planned hospital birth.
