Hi!

I am pursing certification as a childbirth mentor through Birthing From Within. One of my assignments is to read a couple of current books, published in the last 2 years, on "pregnancy and birth". Now, I am pretty well read on most aspects of pregnancy and birth already. One area I really don't know a lot about, because I've not experienced it personally and only peripherally as a doula/CBE, is multiple pregnancy and birth. So, can you think of an excellent book published since 2008 on this topic?

Thanks!

Here as mama to W (2/04), R (5/06), D (7/09), and J (12/9/12!), co-parenting with my DH

I WOH part-time, am a doula & childbirth educator, home/unschool, and hope we are nearing the center of chaos

Not sure how recent they are but the 2 absolute best I have found on the topic is When You're Expecting Twins, Triplets or Quads by Dr Luke. It is a fairly newer book though I'm not sure it's as new as 2008. Having Twins by Elizabeth Noble has been revised many times and is still a great book for the subject and current in its info as they have revised it over the years. They are by far the most informative and explain twinning and multiples clearly along with tons of much needed pregnancy related info.
