After about a year and a half or so of participating in the discussion board for my review of WTEWYE, I'm definitely noticing that people are asking for recommendations for books to read as an alternative. The problem is that, collectively, we don't seem to be coming up with a heck of a lot.
So my goal here is to try and start a more positive discussion of what other books everyone found that DOES work, so we can finally put this over-rated piece of garbage back to work lining someone's bird-cage ...

I would suggest "Pregnancy for Dummies".
I wish I would have read it instead of What to Expect. It would have made me a lot less worrisome and a lot less afraid of food! What to Expect had me convinced everything I was eating was going to hurt my baby, where as "Pregnancy for Dummies" was much better.

I had to put down those books for verbatim guidance and stick to what my mid-wife said. She provided me a list of sources that promote natural childbirth that I found were more positive and encouraging than WTEWYE. Doulas are also good sources of info. I'm 25 weeks now and I feel more empowered and less fearful after talking to a local doula.
