Take childbirth classes. Go to La Leche League meetings. Have a midwife and doula. Have a home or birth center birth. Don't let anyone talk you into induction unless you or the baby's life is in danger. No epidural. No monitors or IVs to tie you down. Breastfeed withing an hour after birth. No bottles or pacifiers. Call a La Leche League Leader or lactation consultant if you have any breastfeeding problems (before you complicate matters more).

What to Expect When You Are Expecting has a lot of bad info and there are many better books. For books to read go to web sites like the Lamaze site and look at the books they recommend. Go to a bookstore or library and look at all the books. Any book by William and Martha Sears or Sheila Kitzinger is good. They have authored many books about pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding, and parenting.
