Top natural pregnancy books

The following are some (of the many) pregnancy and natural birth books that I read that were instrumental to me in making my 26-hour natural labor an experience I look back on fondly. Your Best Birth: Know all Your Options, Discover the Natural Choices and Take Back the Birth Experience by Ricki Lake and Abby Epstein- Highly Recommended.
Active Birth: The New Approach to Giving Birth Naturally by Janet Balaskas- Some good information, it addresses the importance of movement and involvement during birth.
Natural Childbirth the Bradley Way – Many women do really well with the Bradley method of natural childbirth and I like that this system also involves the husband as an integral part of the birth. Natural childbirth is incredible, but the proper preparation can make a tremendous difference! Check out my friend Genevieve’s free webinar on the keys to help you achieve your best and most natural birth!
The thing that helped me the most with my natural birth was confronting the fear and accepting that there was going to be a lot of pain.
Most of these books I read and gained so much information from for the birth of my daughter.
Orgasm Birth by: Elizabeth Davis and Debrah Pascali -Bonaro really made such an impact on my birth in addition to several of the mentioned books above.


The Christian Childbirth Handbook by Jennifer Vanderlaan was the first book I read that introduced me to a more natural approach and gave me confidence in birthing with an OB at a hospital. From experience, I know that fear and tension can make natural birth a scary and painful experience, rather than a challenging but empowering accomplishment it is meant to be. This book came as an addition to the documentary, The Business of Being Born, which I also highly recommend. Have read half of these books you’ve listed but excited about learning of the others! I’m mainly asking as I have been really searching hard for books specifically on pregnancy (first time for me). But it was the nutritional advice of a midwife and experiences with a homebirth and at a birth center that made a significant difference for my 2nd and 3rd pregnancies. I also used an image that helped me to visualize the force with which nature was working in my body. Also the stretching tips from a Doula friend helped a lot when I approached 42 wks pregnant. I have read about 4 or 5 birth books and will continue to read those, but for the most part I hope to have my birth plan done.


It explains in depth the reason (or lack thereof) of many of the common interventions and procedures during pregnancy and birth and empowers moms to make the best choices for them in these situations.
This books helps women feel confident that their bodies are capable and excellent at birthing naturally in most cases. I am starting to look into registering and would love a book on what to expect after birth.
This was the book that gave me the knowledge to be able to stand up to pushy doctors and nurses, even while in the pain of transition.
There was no way my hubby would read an entire book on it, but he went to the classes and was an amazing coach during the births of our daughters!
But I need a lot of good supportive reading so I can be more confident about doing this the all natural way even after 2 c’s.
