Is your desire to have an empowering birth experience?
We cannot have a list of pregnancy books without including one from Ina May Gatskin. Ina May has been revolutionary in the normalization of natural Birth in North America. In 1979 she founded “The Farm” in rural Tennessee, one of the first birth centres in the United States. The incredible birth outcomes and statistics from The Farm gave Ina May a voice to promote midwifery care in US and abroad. Ina has published many books worth reading, but the most noteworthy place to start would be, Ina May’s Guide To Childbirth, which first starts with captivating birth stories from women who have delivered at The Farm and then practical advice to help you have your best birth outcome.
Birthing From Within by Pam England, brings a holistic and spiritual approach back to birth. Pam brings her vast knowledge from her over 20 years of work as a midwife to this book that gives practical and relevant advice for pregnancy all the way to postpartum. This book will empower you to consider birth as an act of self discovery rather than a medical event.
We can’t leave your support people out! The Birth Partner, by Penny Simkin gives guidance to any person who is supporting a mother through pregnancy, birth and postpartum. It takes the reader through the process of labour with explanations to guide you through any possible variables. No matter what the outcome may be, your partner will feel much more confident in their support after reading this book.
Something rarely discussed however is the mother herself.
You can be set up for success to take care of a newborn, but how can you be set up
