I just ordered the first 4 I'm getting for this pregnancy. I have a few more I'm going to buy, but DH talked me into waiting until we've read the first ones to order more. I'm looking for things with a more natural slant (Not What to Expect When you're Expecting) and recommendations are greatly appreciated. As of right now, I think my plan is to look into a few different methods and either pick the one I feel is best for me or most likely, take bits and pieces of all of them and combine them. Today I ordered:
Birthing from Within
Ina May's Guide to Childbirth
Husband Coached Childbirth (this is a book on the Bradley method and DH and I will both be reading it)
I'm also planning on ordering The Thinking Woman's Guide to a Better Birth, The Birth Partner (for DH), and probably some form of Hypnobabies/Hypnobirthing. What else should I get?
Gentle Birth Choices
Ina May is okay. Birthing From Within is the best.
I would scrap Husband Coached Childbirth and just have him read Birthing From Within and do the projects with you.

Read Birthing From Within First.
Gentle Birth Choices is also really good, the book I have came with a DVD. :-)
