Did you know that the people from Our Bodies Ourselves put out a pregnancy and birth edition? Well they did and it's fabulous. When I was pregnant I got two books, What to Expect When You Are Expecting and The Hipmama Survival Guide.
While I hated WTE, I loved Hipmama, but was still unfulfilled. Both are such extremes and apparently I am dead in the center, ok left of center, but still.
Now Our Bodies Ourselves Pregnancy and Birth is more my pace.
I'll admit that I did not read each word in this book, but I feel that I did
my due diligence. What OBOS's pregnancy book is is a book that combines
the best of hipmama granola with honest medical advise. Yes, OBOS
spends a lot of time talking about midwives and what an optimal birth
would look like, but I never got the feeling that it was guilting me
into having the "perfect" birth.
I really wish that I had had this book when I got pregnant almost six years ago.
