I loved Up the Duff.
Loved Up The Duff. Also if planning a natural labour I found "A Labour of Love" by Gabrielle Targaett (?spelling). This book was amazing and along with the CD.
"Birth" by Catherine Price & Sandra Robinson - it covers everything from pregnancy to the postnatal period, is easy to understand, relevant to current practices in public maternity units in Australia, and is Australian!
Pinky McKay's books are also awesome.
I know this one is a little off topic but i just finished Denise Scotts book All That Happened at Number 26.
After reading so many baby books focusing on the damage that you can do your kids for not being perfect it was so refreshing to read something light hearted from someone who admits to not being the perfect mother but who has raised to amazing people to adulthood in-spite of all the bumps in the road along the way.
