Let's compile a list here of our "must-reads" that we constantly refer to or recommend. First time mama's - definitely check this out and head to your library or Amazon. I have read and re-read these books many times!
1) Ina May's Guide to Childbirth, by Ina May Gaskin. Hands down the top book I always recommend. No matter your birth choices, this will empower you as a woman to love and be thankful by what's going on in your body! I even got my DH to read it and he thought it was helpful (while preparing for our first homebirth).
2) Gentle Birth, Gentle Mothering by Sarah J. Buckley, MD. She goes through pros and cons of every option offered to you while pregnant. She's an MD that's had 4 (or 5?) homebirths so I love her POV.
3) The Natural Pregnancy Book, by Aviva J Romm. Yet again, another doctor that is very naturally/homebirth focused but respects and appreciates the "standard" hospital birth practices.
4) The Sears Books - for Pregnancy, Attachment Parenting and The Baby Book.
What else do you mama's always recommend or turn to for Pregnancy/Childbirth?
