Hi all

I have now reached the 25week stage and feel I need to start reading up on labour and child birth. Does anybody have any recommendations for books/ websites they have used?

Thanks

There are so many different books available - what are you generally looking for? More of a natural/hypnobirthing material, or would you rather want to know the medical details, things that could happen etc?

I'd be interested in any natural/hypnobirthing recommendations anyone has?

Thanks

I have no idea what I want. Think I need to read a mixture to help me decide what's best for me.

Thanks Hazlenutt

I have just ordered a free sample of each for my kindle.

I've been really enjoying Maggie Howell's natal hypnotherapy x
