  • What To Expect When You're Expecting. Their website is pretty good too, I liked their message boards

  • Do NOT read What to Expect. It's an incredibly biased book with loads of misleading information.

    The Pregnancy Bible is pretty good and does a decent job on covering all topics and all options that you have avaliable to you.

    Pushed is also a good one.

  • I agree to avoid WTEWYE, if possible.

    I encourage you to opt for more empowering, encouraging, and informing resources.
    You might like to consider:
    Gentle Birth, Gentle Mothering
    Ina Mays Guide To Childbirth
    Birthing From Within
    Childbirth The Bradley Way
    Gentle Birth Choices (somes w/a DVD !)
    The Thinking Woman's Guide To A Better Birth


    I can think of many more, but there is a start!

    I try to order books to the library first, read them. If I renew them too many times it's a sign to go to Powells or Amazon and order !
    ;-D

    Good luck!
