4. Mojo Mom - written by a local writer/mom about gaining balance as a mom. wouldn't recommend it to a new mom but one who was more sure of her own parenting style and looking to balance that with more time/work/play or whatever. she's a huge fan of pumping, thinks cribs are okay and okay to leave the babe with other care providers. so, that is just a given in the book versus something to explore. i didn't feel comfy with these things back in the day but now my DD sleeps in her own bed most of the time, pretty much weaned and has stayed with her glammy for a few hours at a time. this really isn't so much a book about these things but they stuck out to me. the pursuing goals and getting more for one's mom self was great!
5. The Birth Book, Dr Sears well, i am preggo, again!
6. Art of Parenting Twins...but not preggo with twins. this was a pp doula requirement!
7. Emergency Childbirth, b/c i know how busy my MW is this month and in march.
8. Nurturing Families, another PP Doula requirement
9. The Pregnancy Book, Dr. Sears...once, again...b/c i am
10. Overcoming Post Partum Depression and Anxiety This is a really comprehensive but concise overview of the spectrum of Post Partum Moods that can occur. It was informative for me personally and a great resource for my clients. I will definitely refer people to this book as pregnant people later in their pregnancies. It's brief but really well -written.
11. Mountain Woman Survival, Cliffie Strong yeah, kindda random but i like survival stuff and this was an easy read that i found sitting on my bookshelf one night with insomnia.
12. Spiritual Midwifery, Gaskin I finally got around to finishing this. It gets repetitive so i had to keep putting it back down before all the birth stories became a blur to me.
