Gentle Birth, Gentle Mothering
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book - I just wish I had started reading it earlier in my pregnancy. It discusses in great detail the various interventions you may or may not choose to have during your pregnancy or childbirth from all points of view - including the benefits and risks associated with these. It is well researched and referenced. I found it very encouraging and after reading this book I have more faith in my body's ability to birth a baby and feel that I have the tools to make the right choices for me. I would recommend this book to every pregnant woman, even those who have children already.
