Best Pregnancy & Birthing books
The amount of literature facing prospective parents is bewildering. Here are my top 5 recommendations:
1. Brighton Baby: A Revolutionary Organic Approach to Having an Extraordinary Child. by Roy Dittman. 2012. 1030 pages. www.brightonbaby.com has hard and ebook versions.
This is the most practical manual to get. I’d get the hard copy. A

Buckley is an OB/GYN who had four children by homebirth (rather than

4. Any books by Michel Odent. French OB/GYN
5. Ideal Birth, by Sondra Ray. 1985.
There are lots of other good books by very hip and smart mothers. I’m not claiming my list is complete.
