pregnant or considering pregnancy. Although the book was
written with home birth parents in mind, it also makes an
excellent resource for parents who are hospital-bound and
want to be informed of their options. Ms. Baldwin covers
topics such as the history of birthing practices, the safety
of planned homebirth, pregnancy nutrition, and choices in
prenatal care. She also provides excellent information on
the spirituality of pregnancy and birth, complications and
emergencies, tools for labor, and the postpartum period. If
you are looking for something to supplement "What To Expect"
this book is it.
