<p>Last pregnancy I read Ina May's Guide to Childbirth and am wondering if anyone has recommendations for any other great books like this.  Thanks!</p>

Check out the Holistic Guide to Pregnancy and Childbirth by Deepak Chopra. It's one of my favorites!<img alt="joy.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/joy.gif">

<p>I also liked Birthing From Within. Among others I liked:</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Husband-Coached Childbirth, Robert A. Bradley</p>
<p>Natural Childbirth the Bradley Way, Susan McCutcheon</p>
<p>The Thinking Woman's Guide to a Better Birth, Henci Goer</p>
<p>The Birth Partner, Penny Simkin</p>
<p>Pushed: The Painful Truth About Childbirth and Modern Maternity, Jennifer Block</p>
<p> </p>
<p>If you adore Ina May's style, she has also written:</p>
<p>Spiritual Midwifery</p>
<p>Birth Matters: A Midwife's Manifesta</p>
<p>Ina May's Guide to Breastfeeding</p>

<p>Less a birth prep book and more a pep talk, but I love "Baby Catcher".  Can't recall the author right now.  I does have one possibly triggering story with infant near death/brain damage, but overall I find the stories she shares to be incredibly empowering.</p>
