I've been on a reading frenzy so I thought I'd share some of my favorite pregnancy books/resources so far...
The Big Book of Birth - A must. Probably my favorite so far.
Ina May's Guide to Childbirth - I had to skip through some of the birthing stories in the beginning of the book but enjoyed the rest of it. This book has given me a different perspective and the motivation/inspiration that I've been looking for. PS. This one is known for being a little "crunchy" :)
Natural Childbirth the Bradley Way - Desperately needs to be updated but has some great exercises and techniques that might come in handy when dealing with labor pains. (luckily my local library had this one)
The Business of Being Born (documentary) - the force that piqued my interest in learning more about the benefits of natural Birth (via Netflix)
The Happiest Baby on the Block - most mothers I've met swear by this book/technique (I've yet to vouch for it)
The Expectant Father - Hillsy is reading this one...
Baby Bargains - was really helpful in figuring out what baby stuff I needed, super helpful when working on your baby registry!
Baby 411 - sorta like a cliff notes version of what to expect in the first months, I haven't finished it yet.
What to Expect When you're Expecting (not pictured) - this one has been getting a bad rap lately but I personally didn't have a problem with it. It's not something that I read cover to cover in one sitting. I just read one chapter at a time as my pregnancy progressed.
The Pregnancy Journal: A Day to Day Guide to a Healthy and Happy Pregnancy (not pictured) - Hillsy has been reading this book out loud every night before we go to bed since day one. Each day you get a little progress report of what's happening inside of you and the progress of your baby.
Please feel free to share some of your favorites or post about it on your blog and add a link to it on your comment!
