I have a few. "The thinking woman's guide to childbirth", "the complete book of pregnancy and childbirth", "pregnancy, childbirth and the newborn."

Henci goer, sheila kitzinger, pinny simpkin are great natural childbirth authors to add to sears and ina may gaskin.

I also read "the birth partner "as does DH so that I can go over it with him, and give him past examples for myself like, "yes, I felt just like that, so I reacted like this, and it would help if you did___________". It's great for people who want an involved partners; moms, sisters, husbands, whoever. I just brushed up on it for my IRL BFFs birth, and it helped me focus on her, and not on the uber medical birth she was having.

My favorites have already been mentioned. "Ina Mays guide to child birth", "the birth partner" and "the thinking womans guide to child birth".

I'm also reading the hypnobirthing book. I can't remember the name. For all I know it's as simple as "hypnobirthing" LOL

i also like hypnobirthing The Mongan method. it talks a lot about the history of birth, and birth and fear in the beginning, as well as has a "self help" teaching in the last half, along with a CD to help with relaxation techniques. i recommend this even to women who already know they want an epidural, not to convince them otherwise, but to help them relax and the fact it helps with falling back to sleep!

I would definitely recommend Ina May's Guide to Childbirth if you haven't already, and Grantly Dick's Childbirth Without Fear.
