Hi ladies,

Have decided that im going to have a home birth, just wondered if any of you have some recommendations as to what to read to get the best info?

Birth in general I advise Ina May Gaskin's guide to childbirth. She's very focused on natural, homebirthing although in the US so a little different.

I was going to say the Ina May Gaskin book. Great to read other people's natural birth stories in ehre. I found it very reassuring and thought about them during my labour. Made me feel that I too could do it!
