The book was an extra for us to read in the evenings. I'll be honest it was mostly me reading and giving my husband he highlights. However, it's a good read and helped to shed some light on questions we had.
I did like Husband Coached Childbirth quite a bit and got a lot of information from it, however, I do not think you need to own it. After reading it through once, I never felt compelled to go back and read it again. I would suggest checking this one out from your local library, reading it through, especially the breathing description, and purchasing Natural Childbirth the Bradley Way instead.
My mom had a horrible labor when she gave birth to me. I expected a simlar ordeal when I had my daughter. I thought for sure that I would need drugs, because if women who had drugs told me how bad the pain was it must be awful without them. When I read this book it made me feel that labor might not be so bad after all. My husband and I took the bradley classes and by the end felt educated and confident about the birthing process. I had my daughter naturally 20 days ago with no intervention. My mom was present and was amazed at how well the birth went. I am recommending this book to all my pregnant friends.
I did not end up doing the natural method. A scene from the movie, Knocked Up, scared me about 3 weeks before due date, so I opted for the epidural.
My epidural did not take however, so I was very happy that I had some preparation with this book. The mentality described gives you confidence, inner strength and peace about going natural when everyone tells you to get the meds.
On my next birth, I will not waste time or money on epidurals or medicine. It does interfere with the experience as a whole. I'll just read this book again to get my mindset ready. No need for classes now.
