Are there any books, videos, or websites you ladies would recommend me looking at? I want to be as prepared as I can to make sure that I am able to deliver twins naturally ( I am taking a childbirth class that starts tomorrow). Thanks so much!

I really enjoyed reading Ina May's Guide to Childbirth. The birth stories in it are very positive, plus there is a lot of good info

^^^ That's exactly what I was going to say! Great book. You can usually find it right at Border's or Amazon.

Besides the above recommendation our subforum has a ton of info and links! Take a look through there and see what looks interesting to you. Then as your pregnancy progresses you can come back and look up certain topics that come up and have questions about.

Jamie I feel I should just start saying "ditto to everything Jamie says!" I see you are wanting to do a water birth too! I am so disappointed they won't let me... my last baby was delivered in water and it was WONDERFUL!! I went home a few hours after his birth... I can only hope this delivery goes as well! As you said I can labor in water just not deliver. Anyway, let me know if you find out any good details I should know!! I can't wait to hear how your birth goes. Oh, and what classes are you taking? In the past we have done Bradley classes and LOVED them!!

my recommendation to start would be the thinking woman's guide to a better birth- not a warm and fizzy book like Ina May's, but it is a great way to educate yourself

That's great you had such a wonderful water birth! THe class that I am taking is just a regular childbirth class offered by our hospital. I live in the middle of no where so finding a Bradley class is near impossible! As it is there were only 3 other couples in our class last night lol!!!!

Thanks for the reading info ladies!
