No more What To Expect for me. Does anyone have a good recommendation for a pregnancy book that's natually-minded?

Thank you!

I'm Pregnant by Lesley Regan, MD.

Very pro-bf, includes midwives, allows for cd, includes a few pages on non-drug labor therapies, and the like. I really like it. Someone suggested this one since I used/hated what to expect with the first.

I don't like the "What to expect" series either, however, I LOVE "The Natural Pregnancy book" by Aviva Jill Romm. It is very informative, written by a mamma herbalist/midwife. She inclueds information on pretty much everthing and talks about how to go about treating issues naturally and when it is best for medical intervention. I really recomend this book!!

oh yes.... and also wanted to add that, for me, what's been more nourishing to read than anything else has been really positive empowering birth stories- you learn so much! I particularly love to read UC stories. There's wonderful collections out there in cyberland (including right here in MDC)...

When my friend was pregnant I found a book by the editor of Mothering mag (and no I'm not a subscriber or employee). I think it was called "Having a Baby Naturally". I bought it for her so I did not read it but I liked it because it was so focused on natural pregnancy and birth and followed a timeline like other pregnancy books.

I adored Ina May's Guide to Childbirth by Ina May Gaskin. It does focus more on birth than pregnancy but I loved it.

Sheila Kitzinger's Complete Guide to Pregnancy and Childbirth. Because it's big, comprehensive, and covers everything, like the WTE books, but is totally NFL friendly. I also like that it isn't "about" being alternative, but is just a large basic book that covers things from a good perspective.
