I know I've read this book at the local library. It talks about natural and home birthing. It talks about the transition from the womb to the world for the baby.. and how hard it is on them.
I need it.. but can't figure out the name of it at all.
It was in black and white.. had lots of photos, and was short, straight to the point.

Your description sounds like a few different books I've read, but the ones that come to mind most quickly are these 2:
- Homebirth: The Essential Guide to Giving Birth Outside the Hospital by Sheila Kitzinger (republished in 2002 as Birth Your Way)
- Gentle Birth Choices by Barbara Harper
Maybe it's one of these??
BTW, Ina May Gaskin's new book, Birth Matters? I just finished it, and it's excellent. Another one to add to the reading list! :)
