I have read all of those except Active Birth including the Thinking Womans Guide (very good for hospital/ first time moms IMO) and this one is by far my favorite:

Amazon.com: Adventures in Natural Childbirth: Tales from Women on the Joys, Fears, Pleasures, and Pains of Giving Birth Naturally: Janet Schwegel, Pam England: Books

Im reading it for the 3rd time this pregnancy! It has very inspirational stories and there are drawing of different positions to use and there are sections on achieving a natural childbirth with different caregivers.

Pushed is great because it is so full of stats, and the stories and quotes in there will get you really fired up and ready to take on the establishment. Or prove them all wrong and have a NCB.
