Thanks for the suggestion. I just ordered it. I had been wanting to purchase a book or two for awhile and recently ordered "the thinking woman's guide to a better birth", but didn't know what else to get.
I just checked this book out last night and I'm going to read it the next two days. I have been told so much about this book from friends and from my midwife. I'm hoping for a natural this time and I can't afford to take classes so I was told this would help out so much.
I read her book during my last pregnancy and in general, I did like it. The only thing that I found a bit "out there" was some of the heavy "making out" between the laboring mom and partner. I get the physiology behind it but just can't imagine "getting it on" at the hospital with all the staff around. Obviously, it'd be much easier suggestion to follow if I were birthing at home! I remember while reading it, thinking "Wow! That's definately uninhibited behavior!" Also, for whatever reason, some of the slang and "terminology" kept distracting me.
I also read "Birthing From Within" I forgot the author, but I think that was the title. It was a really great book. I am thinking about reading it again even though it was just last year that I read it.
That is an excellent book! I read it while pregnant with Lily. Yes, some of the birth stories are a bit out there (I'm recalling one where they did nipple stimulation and it was the mom's DH and a female friend, which was a little strange to me), but it has great information in it! Birthing From Within and a Thinking Women's Guide to a Better Birth are both excellent as well.
