                The Essential Homebirth Guide is a great introduction to homebirth, especially for first time parents.  It's a book that is very easy to read, in a Q & A format.  I can see this book being great to give to partners or family that may not be on board 100% with homebirth.  It's not preachy or pretentious, just a great overall guide to homebirth.

                  The Essential Homebirth Guide is the first book in decades to specifically address a homebirth audience. The book is written by two homebirth midwives, Jane E. Drichta, CPM and Jodilyn Owen, CPM and gives an excellent overview of pregnancy and birth and the options available to birthing families.

                  The Essential Homebirth Guide: For Families Planning or Considering Birthing at Home

                  Description: Two midwives present the What to Expect When You're Expecting for homebirths—with a Foreword by Dr. Christiane Northrup. When Dr. Northrup learned Jane and Jodilyn were writing a book about homebirths, she enthusiastically gave it her seal of approval and said, “There is a huge need for this book, and there is nothing currently available on the market for this population.” For the more than 4 million pregnant women in the U.S. each year, The Essential Homebirth Guide is an empowering, joyous, and informative guide to pregnancy and homebirth—the only up-to-date, comprehensive book dedicated to this subject. With its convenient Question & Answer format, complete with stories from real mothers sharing their birthing experiences, this covers all there is to know about at-home delivery. From the history of homebirth, to the expectations during pregnancy, to exactly how to prepare the house for the big day, this is the definitive guide for any woman considering or planning a homebirth.
