The Girlfriends' Guide to Pregnancy
3.  The Girlfriends' Guide to Pregnancy by Vicki Iovine
The list author says:
  "This one was a good overview written from a "friend's" point of view rather than a doctor's. I did learn some of the "things no one else tells you" here."

Belly Laughs: The Naked Truth about Pregnancy and Childbirth
4.  Belly Laughs: The Naked Truth about Pregnancy and Childbirth by Jenny McCarthy
The list author says:
  "I am not a Jenny McCarthy fan, but I gave it a shot anyways, and it was fun! I did not have many close friends who had experienced pregnancy, so it was fun to laugh along with Jenny. Not a lot of technical stuff here, but plenty of sympathy."

Baby Bargains Book
5.  Baby Bargains Book by Windsor Press

Natural Childbirth the Bradley Way: Revised Edition
6.  Natural Childbirth the Bradley Way: Revised Edition by Susan McCutcheon
The list author says:
  "I used the natural Bradley Method during childbirth, and did the best I could by reading about it, since classes aren't offered in my area. (though even if they were, they are expensive!) This book is by a very well-trained and experienced nurse, and includes lots of instruction. I had a very easy delivery without drugs in the hospital."

Husband-Coached Childbirth (Fifth Edition): The Bradley Method of Natural Childbirth

Ina May's Guide to Childbirth
8.  Ina May's Guide to Childbirth by Ina May Gaskin
The list author says:
  "I read this one as I got interested in natural childbirth. It had methods and ideas that helped me a lot, even though I gave birth in a hospital rather than with a midwife. It did make me consider moving to Tennessee so I could give birth with Ms. Gaskin! More seriously, it also made me realize that I'd like to have my next child with a midwife."

The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding
10.  The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding by Teresa Pitman
The list author says:
  "Another great resource for breastfeeding. If you're nervous about LLL like I was, from my experience, they will not try to make you breastfeed your child until they're 3. They will do everything they can to help you breastfeed for as long as you and your baby are interested."

Happiest Baby on the Block DVD
13.  Happiest Baby on the Block DVD by Harvey Karp
The list author says:
  "Another essential! My husband and I watched this video when our daughter was maybe about a month old, and our lives were changed for the better. And we didn't even have a very difficult child! There is also a book version if you're looking for more info (I was, and I read it. Also excellent, but took more time of course)"

Baby Catcher: Chronicles of a Modern Midwife
14.  Baby Catcher: Chronicles of a Modern Midwife by Peggy Vincent
The list author says:
  "I loved this book, a narrative nonfiction about the author's experiences as a midwife in the 70s-90s. Very eye-opening for me, to say the least. I loved the stories, this one led me to explore modern midwifery further and eventually decide my next child would be born by midwife if at all possible."
$11.79   Used & New from: $2.48
