Ina May, Natural Childbirth, and a bunch of others my midwife gave me. None of it helped once I was in labor. Research I've done online helped once baby was here more than any books. I stray from traditional parenting books though.
Thus far the only book I've read is Bring Up Bebe, most of the information in there seemed almost common sense to me, but perhaps its just the way I was raised. There were no "ah ha!" moments while reading it BUT it was a good read and I'd recommend it. I'm considering reading The Idle Parent as it was a recommendation. DH is reading Dude, You're Gonna Be a Dad! and he's liking it so far.
So far though I've mostly been researching the different topics I'm interested in online than reading books. There is just so so so many out there and it's hard to even begin to think of what kind of books to search for. Some other books I'm thinking about checking out are How to Talk so Kids Will Listen & Listen so Kids Will Talk, The Whole-Brained Child, Children's Spaces, & Anything on baby signs.
