I’m starting to prep myself mentally for giving birth again, so I’m in the market for some good books. Last time around I read a lot of birth stories online as well as Ina May’s Guide to Childbirth by Ina May Gaskin, Active Labor by Janet Balaskas, some of Birthing from Within by Pam England, The Birth Partner by Penny Simkin and Hypnobirthing: The Mongan Method by Marie Mongan.
I just ordered Spiritual Midwifery by Ina May Gaskin from the library, and I’m looking at Calm Birth by Robert Newman, Preparing for Birth with Yoga by Janet Balaskas, A Good Birth A Safe Birth by Diane Korte and Adventures in Natural Childbirth edited by Janet Schwegel.
Does anybody have any thoughts/experience with any of those books? Would you recommend any others?
