Last pregnancy I read Ina May's Guide to Childbirth and am wondering if anyone has recommendations for any other great books like this. Thanks!
I also liked Birthing From Within. Among others I liked:
Husband-Coached Childbirth, Robert A. Bradley
Natural Childbirth the Bradley Way, Susan McCutcheon
The Thinking Woman's Guide to a Better Birth, Henci Goer
The Birth Partner, Penny Simkin
Pushed: The Painful Truth About Childbirth and Modern Maternity, Jennifer Block
If you adore Ina May's style, she has also written:
Birth Matters: A Midwife's Manifesta
Ina May's Guide to Breastfeeding
Less a birth prep book and more a pep talk, but I love "Baby Catcher". Can't recall the author right now. I does have one possibly triggering story with infant near death/brain damage, but overall I find the stories she shares to be incredibly empowering.
Natural Hospital Birth: The Best of Both Worlds is great :)
