With our times coming up soon enough, I was wondering... what are your favourite articles about birth... which are your favourite stories?

Which ones inspire you? which ones have you learned from? Which would you like to share with others?

Here are a few of mine...

The "Rule of 10" Versus women's Primal Wisdom
This is a favourite of mine that puts into question the "rule of 10" (being 10 cm to push) when there are many women that feel the urge before that time.

A video of a home breach water birth
I find this one amazing, showing that hands off and patience is what is needed in a Breach birth.

Simply Give Birth
This is a collection of birth stories, most are UC's... Two of us in this DDC have stories in it which I find really cool and the stories are inspiring and down to earth.

This is a good article by an OB/GYN on Delayed Cord Clamping which might be good one to share if you have an OB.

About "post dates"... I know how it feels to be "still pregnant"...

Actually... on that blog there are a lot of great articles... http://www.theunnecesarean.com/previous-blog-posts/

So what are yours?

Thanks for sharing those!

I have been reading Birthing From Within, Ina May's Guide to Childbirth, etc.

I have also been trying to focus on positive twin homebirth stories. There was one in Mothering magazine this past summer that inspires me everyday.
