Harvard Common Press
I'm Not Sick; I'm Just Pregnant
One of the first things I said to my loved ones when I told them I was expecting my first child was, "Please, don't get me any pregnancy books". I did receive Your Pregnancy Week by Week". It's great if you want a big list of Don'ts and want to be informed of everything that could go wrong in the next 9 months. I decided early on thta I wanted a completely natural birth. (Yeah, I guess I am a ...
The Birth Book: Everything You Need to Know to Have a Safe and Satisfying Birth (Sears Parenting Library)
Little, Brown and Company
MOST VALUABLE BIRTHING BOOK READ!
When our daughter became pregnant, her first feeling was......'of course I'll birth in the hospital'. I had hoped otherwise, but this was not my birth. After her own web research and then reading The Birthing Book, she completely changed her mind and took responsibility for her body and her baby. Her wish was not only to fully experience the birth, but to respect her child's time of arrival ...
The Birth of the Peacekeepers.
Fantastic, gripping read
Birth of the Peacekeepers actually surprised me a lot. Disaster/post-disaster scenarios are not uncommon and have become something of a cliché so I wasn't sure I would like it. I was very, very pleasantly surprised because the author has created such a believable scenario that I very quickly got lost in the action. I was captivated from the very first page. The pages literally turn themselves ...
A Prisoner of Birth
St. Martin's Paperbacks
This was my first Jeffrey Archer novel and I'm wondering, how did I miss this guy? From the first page until the very last, I was truly amazed at the quality of characters, the storyline and everything in between in this outstanding book. There is nothing I can add to the rest of the great reviews here. This book is truly outstanding in every way. Highly recommended and I'd give it 10 stars ...
The Birth of Venus: A Novel
Random House Trade Paperbacks
Beauty at its Finest
While reading this book, I got lost in its beauty, and its reality. From the gripping prologue all the way to the last page, I was completely entranced. I first read this book over 6 years ago, and have yet to find any sort of historical fiction that surpasses it, or even comes close. In my opinion, its the best Sarah Dunant historical fiction piece. I can barely state how much I adore this book.
The Thinking Woman's Guide to a Better Birth
THE Book to Ease Your Mind about Natural Childbirth
I loved this book and used it to help convince my husband that homebirth attended by a midwife was a safe and viable option for our family. There is so much rhetoric & medical propoganda that scares people into thinking its irresponsible or risky to have a homebirth. Happy to say we had a beautiful birth experience and my husband wouldn't change it for the world. Contains lots of facts & figures ...

American Academy Of Pediatrics
Caring for Your Child
I have given this book to every new parent I know and every single one has nothing but praise for it. They all say it has been a lifesaver and they refer to it constantly, that it is the best and most practical book they have found on the topic, and they in turn give it to new parents.
Heading Home with Your Newborn: From Birth to Reality
Laura A. Jana MD FAAP
Jennifer Shu MD FAAP
American Academy Of Pediatrics
Referenced until worn!
I felt clueless during the first couple of weeks after my daughter's birth. This book reassured me that I was doing things "right" and helped me understand what I wasn't sure about. I first read the book cover to cover before my daughter was born and then referenced specifics using the index after she arrived. It is easy to navigate and understand. A must have for new (and even experienced) ...
The Twelve Gifts of Birth
I first found this book at a school book fair. It is so touching. It makes an excellent book for a newborn baby with room to write comments in the front such as what your mommy or daddy has said or done preceding your birth. I bought one for each of my grandchilren as they were older too. I highly recommend it as a keepsake. Sandy Dlabaj
Love and Logic Magic for Early Childhood: Practical Parenting from Birth to Six Years
Love & Logic Press
This book is amazing and it was delivered exactly as promised. I recommend it to ANYONE!
The Birth House: A Novel (P.S.)
Easy to relate to
I discovered this book not long after I gave birth to my first daughter, whom I had tried (and failed) to have "all-natural." By that time I was very well read on the topic of midwives and natural births, so this fictional book fit right in with my interests. I also found it interesting that the author was inspired to write this book after buying a house in Nova Scotia that had a history as a ...
The Big Book of Birth
A must for pregnancy
The author describes every aspect of birth, from early labor, to pushing, to c-sections, in a very objective manner. Some of the other books I had read were very biased and judgmental on women who choose c-sections over vaginal deliveries, or who chose epidurals. Not here, the author lets you make up your own mind about what is best for you, while informing you of all the pros and cons of ...
The Birth of the Republic, 1763-89 (The Chicago History of American Civilization)
Edmund S. Morgan
University Of Chicago Press
Principle and Patriotism
In his book, The Birth of the Republic 1763 - 89, Edmund S. Morgan addresses the historical problem of why the American colonists, who frequently engaged in quarrels and disputes with each other over the most trivial of matters, united together in a common enterprise to end English rule and establish a new government. Morgan's historiographical analysis offers a response to the progressive ...
Your Best Birth: Know All Your Options, Discover the Natural Choices, and Take Back the Birth Experience
I liked this book.
First of all, let me say that I think Ms. Lake has tackled some very hot button issues and I think she does them with savvy. She has an inherent bias in the sense that she is definitely on the side that is not looking for hospital birth. That being said I think if you are a physician or an individual that delivers in a hospital you might be put off by the tone or angle of the book. The great ...
The Birth of Plenty: How the Prosperity of the Modern World was Created
This book is a Must Read.
This is a must read book. The gist of his message was very positive and gave me great hope. Strong economies and economic trade bring peace. As a business person it is always gratifying to know that you might be doing the world some good. More than just providing jobs but actually helping world peace. Commerce is the start of all peace in the world. Throughout the book, he talks about four ...
Birth: The Surprising History of How We Are Born
Good historical read
Very interesting look at the recent history of childbirth and how physican initiated interventions negaively impacted mother and baby outcomes for many years. Two friends who started casually looking through the book couldn't put it down. Even my midwife asked to borrow it. Really enjoyed this historical look at childbirth.
The Birth of the Clinic: An Archaeology of Medical Perception
Sound historical interpretation, hold the postmodernism
Foucault has been interpreted in the US as a pretentious standard-bearer of postmodernism - as an almost "evil" figure who threatens to undermine the foundations of Western knowledge with his problematisation of conceptual categories. It doesn't help that his work has been taken up to justify just about any subversive perspective, whether well-conceived or not. This is only a pitifully small ...
Active Birth : The New Approach to Giving Birth Naturally, Revised Edition
Harvard Common Press
An Absolute Must-Have
If you are planning on giving birth naturally, you must have this book. When planning for the birth of my first baby at home, I read pretty much every book there is to read on the topic, and found this one to be the #1 best. I have read it over and over, and referred back to it literally up to and during the beginning of labor. It is a very common sense, no-nonsense approach to natural ...
