Having given birth at home in a birth tub, I am partial to natural delivery methods and encourage each woman to fully evaluate the range of birthing options available — there are probably more than you think! My favorite book about giving birth, whether it be natural, at home, in the hospital, by cesarean or with drugs, is Pam England’s “Birthing From Within” (see Resource list below). I highly recommend it to all pregnant women and their partners. You can also learn more about Birthing From Within birthing classes at the Birthing From Within website (see Resource list below).

Birthing from Within: An Extra-Ordinary Guide to Childbirth
Book Description: Here is a holistic approach to childbirth that examines this profound rite-of-passage not as a medical event but as an act of self-discovery. Exercises and activities such as journal writing, meditation, and painting will help mothers analyze their thoughts and face their fears during pregnancy. For use during birth, the book offers proven techniques for coping with labor pain without drugs, a discussion of the doctor or midwife’s role, and a look at the father’s responsibilities. Pregnancy, birth, and postpartum is a process of continuous learning and adjustment; Birthing From Within provides the necessary support and education to make each phase of birthing a rewarding experience.
