I will go through my Bradley book once I'm in the 2nd tri to refresh as well.
I have read Belly Laughs and it was really good, nice and light hearted.
Each week we read the What to Expect book as well. Not sure what else I will read.
Not sure what I'll read. Last time i read a bunch of multiples books along with:
Pushed The Painful Truth About Childbirth and Modern Maternity Care by Jennifer Block
Ina May's Guide to Childbirth by Ina May Gaskins
Hypnobirthing: The Mongan Method by Marie Mongan
I honestly don't remember how Pushed was, I think I got a little annoyed with it by the end, but it had some good info. I remember the other 2 as being great.
Thank you peimum for my siggie

I have read and recommend:
”Birthing from Within”by Pam England
“Guide to Childbirth” by Ina May Gaskin
“The Thinking Woman's Guide to a Better Birth” by Henci Goer
"The Birth Book" by Dr. Sears
"The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding" by LLL Int.
"The Breastfeeding Book" by Martha Sears
I really recommend reading a book on breastfeeding BEFORE baby is born. Also, try to find all the resources in your area ahead of time. It is always better to be armed with as much info and resources as possible when going into something so important. Don't just "wing it!"
I really need to read to feel capable and confident. The more I read the better birth I feel I have. So I am open to any and all suggestions! I am overcoming Big Baby fear after my 12 pound delivery with Owen so I NEEEEED help this time. Big time.
FUN!!! I will have to look into that one! What was it like meeting her??
It was pretty cool. She was in Seattle close to a week doing grand rounds at our big university hospital and participated in the MAWS (Midwives Association of Washington) annual meeting. Then her last day was open to the public where she did another talk and did a book signing. Ya know, she didn't say anything totally profound that I didn't already know or read in one of her other books, but it was cool just listening to her. Her husband was there too, so that was kind of neat.
