From the Book Shelf

Living in the information age, it is easy to be overwhelmed with all the info floating around in cyber space and collecting dust on bookshelves. With a 9 month deadline looming, it is imperative to find the information that is the most useful to you. Here is my list of all time favorite books on pregnancy, birth and breastfeeding. Enjoy!
  1. Ina May's Guide to Childbirth, by Ina May Gaskin
  2. Natural Childbirth the Bradley Way, by Susan Mc Cutcheon
  3. The Complete Book of Pregnancy and Childbirth, by Sheila Kitzinger
  4. The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding, by La Leche League
  5. The Birth Book, by Dr. Sears (he also has the Baby Book, the Breastfeeding Book, the Vaccination Book, etc.)
  6. The Thinking Woman's Guide to Childbirth, by Henci Goer

There are other great books out there, but if a woman only had time to read 6 books, this would be the bare bones list. Awesome, powerful information for the woman who wants childbirth discussed honestly and openly.
