The Midwife's Pregnancy And Childbirth Book: Having Your Baby Your Way Reviews
A good basic resource for exploring options concerning birth, with an obvious bias. My favorite quote (dealing with the topic of simplifying life following the birth of your baby), which could adequately describe many dinners at the Kelly house: For years at my house, family dinners were marred by spilled drinks, pouting kids who didn’t like the food, children tipping over or falling off chairs, and at least one baby who was either nursing or crying while I was trying to eat. Then I realized that young children do not need to eat every dinner with the family . . . peanut butter sandwiches and oranges are nutritious for them and easy for you.
A good source for questions to ask your doctor or midwife.A good overview of midwifery, with comparisons between traditional hospital birth, home birth, and birthing center. The book is a little dated (1990) so there's nothing about midwives delivering in routinely in hospitals, and some of what they describe as standard hospital practice seems draconian. But good info overall; a good way to get to know why doctors/hospitals delivering isn't always preferred or how you might work with a doctor to incorporate other approaches to birth.
I really liked this book and would recommend it to any first time expectant mother. I learned a lot about the type of questions I should ask and things to expect.
