Quick Tips for an Awesome Pregnancy and Birth (14)      Books We Love (8)     
To prepare for an awesome pregnancy & birth - read some awesome stuff!

I'm here to tell you that What to Expect When You're Expecting WILL NOT serve you well if you want to plan an empowered birth. It serves obstetric culture and does not help women find their power and birthing spirit.



Guide to Childbirth


Here are a few books that you might find more useful:

Gentle Birth, Gentle Mothering - Sarah Buckley (Australian)
Ina May's Guide to Childbirth - Ina May Gaskin
Birth With Confidence - Rhea Dempsey (Australian)
Birthing from Within - Pam England
Birth Journeys - Leonie MacDonald

Enjoy!
