Birth book recommendations?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Last pregnancy I read Ina May's Guide to Childbirth and am wondering if anyone has recommendations for any other great books like this.  Thanks!

Check out the Holistic Guide to Pregnancy and Childbirth by Deepak Chopra. It's one of my favorites!joy.gif

Birthing from Within - Pam England 

I read it 5 or 6 times and did many of the activities described.

I also liked Birthing From Within. Among others I liked:

 

Husband-Coached Childbirth, Robert A. Bradley

Natural Childbirth the Bradley Way, Susan McCutcheon

The Thinking Woman's Guide to a Better Birth, Henci Goer

The Birth Partner, Penny Simkin

Pushed: The Painful Truth About Childbirth and Modern Maternity, Jennifer Block

 

If you adore Ina May's style, she has also written:

Spiritual Midwifery

Birth Matters: A Midwife's Manifesta

Ina May's Guide to Breastfeeding

Less a birth prep book and more a pep talk, but I love "Baby Catcher".  Can't recall the author right now.  I does have one possibly triggering story with infant near death/brain damage, but overall I find the stories she shares to be incredibly empowering.
