There are absolutely excellent books "out there" to learn just about everything you want to know about midwifery care, pregnancy, labor, birth, postpartum, breastfeeding, infant care, etc...

 
There are ALSO absolutely HORRIBLE books!
Ill-conceived, poorly written, creating fear of labor pain,
fear of giving birth. Giving mere lip-service to breastfeeding.
 
Use Wisdom, Good Judgment & Caution when selecting books.

Be your own best advocate! Think. Learn. ASK!

 

If the book you are reading states that

                   home and water birth are NOT safe...

                                                     Think again !!

 
Search all the great references about home birth and water birth on our site.
Read the studies and the evidence-based literature before submitting to the opinions
and editorials of those who endorse or practice the
Medical Model of Care rather than the Midwifery Model of Care.
 

Read the latest research and evidence-based booklet:
"What Every Pregnant Woman Needs to Know About Cesarean Section"
