Homebirth-focused or homebirth-aware books for partners

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I would like to buy my husband a book about childbirth that is either geared towards couples planning homebirths or sensitive/aware of homebirth needs. We are planning ours for late February 2014!

 

I have Ina May's book and have been sharing it with him. Just wondering about other options. Was The Birth Partner a good option for some of you past homebirth mamas?

My partner really liked The Birth Partner- I'm pretty sure it's the only book that he read more than a couple of pages. While it's not explicitly about home birth, you can ignore the "when to go to the hospital" (or substitute "when to have the midwives come"). He liked the perspective of what he as a partner might see/do, and I appreciated that it wasn't as "coachy" as some of the Bradley stuff.
