Okay I would like to order a couple natural childbirth books to read through in the next month.

What are your top 3 or 4 that you would recommend(I need to be able to order then on Amazon or somewhere easy to get you know)??

Thanks...

One that was recommended to me that I'm currently reading (and really enjoy) is called Ina May's Guide to Childbirth by Ina May Gaskin. She has another book that she wrote before this one called Spiritual Midwifery that I haven't personally read but have also heard terrific things about.

I'm going to have to third Ina May's book. I actually just got a copy from the library, and read it cover to cover in three days lol.

I read Active Birth by Janet Balaskas while pregnant with Leila. It was good IMO! I am picking up Ina May's this week!

I read one of Gaskin's books but I can't remember which one, but it was great! Also, Pushed by Jennifer Block is really good if you want information. I read Hypnobirthing, although the cd didn't match the exercises in the book and I didn't have much luck with it. However, the book was great for building up your confidence.
