Preparation for Birth:
The Complete Guide to the Lamaze Method

by Beverly Savage, Diane Simkin

Hard to find a better reference on Lamaze
Reviewer: milksie from Pueblo, CO United States
 

  My wife and I are extreme information hounds (much to the surprise and occasionally annoyance of doctors and hospital staff who are used to the usual uninformed masses). We have researched many childbirthing books including those somewhat opposed to the Lamaze method. But this book set the record strait and proved itself in its comprehensiveness and generally satisfied our demanding desire for knowledge. I can't say that the book contains the absolute answer for every imaginable question, but it does provide a comprehensive and reasonable foundation for what Lamaze really stands for in all its nuances.

  I'm somehow surprised that more soon-to-be mothers out there don't want to read more about what is going to take place to them. Information is key to understanding, security and a sense of control. This book provides alot of that.

  We looked at a lot of good books on child birthing. This is probably the only one we would actually recommend.


Need to buy another one
Reviewer: A reader from CT USA
 

   I bought this book before the birth of my first child and found it so full of good information that I lent it to a friend... Now that I am expecting my second child, I am ordering another copy for myself.
It was by far the most informative book I read about child birth.

The Vbac Companion: The Expectant Mother's Guide to Vaginal Birth After Cesarean
by Diana Korte

Well-organized, positive book about achieving a VBAC,
Reviewer: Y. from New York City

   When I heard the author of A Good Birth, A Safe Birth had written a book on vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC), I bought it that day. As I expected, I found it well-organized, full of substantiated facts, extremely helpful, and (sometimes rare in the VBAC community) not too angry. She gives the facts that prove that there is very little reason a woman should not have a VBAC, shows why one has to work hard to find the right doctor and hospital, strongly encourages a woman's support (in addition to one's husband) during labor, gives tips for turning breech and posterior babies, and does it all in a calm, moderate voice that could scare no one off. This book has given me confidence that I can achieve a VBAC. Thank you Diana Korte!
