Something with a section on newborns would be great but not necessary since I'm just reading to brush up a little. I'm looking for something that doesn't treat me like I'm an idiot who's just in it for letting someone else feed them because I'm a bottle feeder and is supportive of epidural anesthesia if you want it,maybe a decent section on cesarean section and something that doesn't spend most of the book trying to tell me how evil and greedy the men of the medical community are.
I want to read something about VBAC,but I'm starting to think it's too much to ask for one that doesn't tell me how the medical establishment victimized me for a profit.
The local library has eight books on home birth,two on natural childbirth in a hospital,one on VBAC that is just chocked full of "your the victim of the evil men" language, and ONE 75 page book on c-section that is mostly a book to comfort women who's just been told they need one then any really helpful information.
So please any good ones or do they just not exist? I'll compromise on the bottle feeding if it helps but I'm so tired of hearing that it's because I'm just not informed enough(Sorry I fought damn hard to bottle feed my son I just get a little touchy about it and I just had another fight with my MIL on how I'm making him fat).
Sorry I know people have different priorities but I'm the first in my family to ever have a c-section, 4 homebirths,10 natural(drug free) hospital and I am the sole c-section(the only bottle feeder in 3 generations too) so I'm looking for a book because I am very alone in this.
So I hope that even if you don't know a book maybe a website that might be helpful(please don't suggest the ican website again or silent knife)?
