Ina May's Guide To Childbirth 

Ina May Gaskin

*disclaimer: this book shares real, raw, firsthand stories of childbirth. Many are stories from women who have worked through difficult moments during their births for a wide variety of reasons. Some women might find parts of these stories distressing or difficult to read. They all end remarkably but I just wanted to point out that especially first-time mums might find some parts confronting.

"...Drawing on over 40 years' experience, internationally acclaimed midwife Ina May Gaskin shows you how to use the mind-body connection to help labour progress calmly and safely.

Read by millions of women around the world, this reassuring and practical guide will take the fear out of childbirth and restore your faith in the power of your body. With Gaskin's timeless wisdom, you can approach birth with confidence and excitement, wherever and however it happens..."
