Maybe I'm crazy, but I thought I recently saw somewhere online to download Emergency Childbirth by Gregory C. White, in PDF format.
Anybody know???

we could google it.

OK, I'll do it.... hold on hold on

cited as a resource for this 2 page pdf on unassisted homebirth preparation or Emergency Childbirth

other than that, none that i could find. lots of catalogs and bibliographies and such with the author and book title listed showed up on results list.... and lots of reviews and such.... but thats not what you were wanting.

if you do find such a beast, please let us know, will you?

Hm. Well, there's some good information but the author also advises the birth attendant to wear rubber gloves, provide good lighting, select a flat surface such as a bed or table for the mother to birth on, check for the cord and pull it up over the baby's head before the body is out, put pressure against the tissues to control the speed of the delivery of the head, flex the baby's head to facilitate birth of the body, assume the baby needs to cry, be dried off and wrapped in towels then diapered and the head covered with a hat, "tying off the cord to prevent circulation of the baby's blood to the placenta", clean the mother with soap and water, and most importantly! , "both baby and mom should be seen as soon as possible" by a midwife or doctor.

Somebody needs to write something more geared toward those planning an instinctive, spontaneous, autonomous birth. Oh wait, I'm doing that! (Ought to get off of here and get to work...

Dang! I just ordered Emergency Childbirth the other day! Maybe it's not too late to cancel the order and I can just print it out.

I just bought the book.

IMO its a huge waste of $$. I can get more info (and better) off the internet than from that book.

Not the best of info especially for those who go unassisted. IMO

Oh thanks for that link. I have been trying to get a copy of the book with no luck. When I uc (just miscarried so waiting to try again) I will be the only one out of hte 4 of us there who has actually BTDT, so I want everyone else to have some reference to know what is actually normal and what's not. Maybe I'll just cross out the crap that doesn't jive with UC. Now I'm gald I don't have to buy it!

I also bought "Heart & Hands,..." (can't remember the rest of the title, by Elizabeth Davis.) It's a book for midwives and I'm starting to read through it. I plan to highlight some of the important/good info on labor and birth for the others to read as well.

I personally have this book - and was just reading/skimming thru. We are prepping for birth #4, UC #2.

This book Heart & Hands: A Midwife's Guide to Pregnancy & Birth I have found fairly good for refrence. I believe that in the beginning there is note about being for those who want to be midwives but aren't in a position to attend school/apprentice...etc.

There is a lot of info about different symptoms in labor/herbs/tinctures/homeopathics that can be used, as well as for the newborn in distress etc. It could maybe be summed up as a laymans version of a condensed textbook. I dislike the info about preventing perineal tears..etc. and the other things {I feel/I am} many UC'ers are avoiding by UC'ing..but of course, you can take what you want and leave the rest.

For a midwifery-type reference, I like Rahima Baldwin's Special Delivery. Both that and Heart & Hands are primarily about how to manage birth, but the midwife-as-savior vibe is slightly less annoying in Special Delivery, and I really like its section on complications.

I agree about Emergency Childbirth -- it's not worth the money. Nice that it's available on the internet though, somebody go post that link on the UC resources list!
