New to the site and will peruse more, but I am having trouble finding credible sources about the actual process and necessities for an unassisted birth. My husband and a very close friend will for sure be attending.

I would also love experience from women about if they had their extended family there? Children (my daughter is 3?) Books, esp. ebooks?

I am 17 weeks pregnant, but I am low risk. I know my body and have confidence in this, but I would (for obvious reasons) like to be as prepared as possible.. for instance, emergency materials? Links, or literature, about possible complications and remedies?


Pleas Help!

Reading through old threads here will be invaluable as will reading the UC birth stories.
