Ina May's Guide to Childbirth

One of the best books that I read while pregnant to prepare for labour was Ina May’s Guide to Childbirth.The book is divided into 2 sections, the first is full of positive birth stories, the second is tips and advice to make labour easier.

Ina May Gaskin is America’s foremost midwife and has compiled a lot of information tips and advice to help get you through labour without intervention.

While I was going through labour, the chapter “Let Your Monkey Do It” carried me through, I let my body do what it had to and followed its cues as to how to make the labour easier.

My labour was easy. It lasted only 6 hours and I had no medications or interventions. It was the labour and delivery I wanted. Both my husband’s support (and back massage), and the information from the book helped to get me through the labour the way I wanted. I highly recommend it for anyone wanting a natural medication free birth.

Tell me what books or tips helped you through labour?
