One of my favorite books I read while I was pregnant with Bear was Orgasmic Birth by Elizabeth Davis and Deborah Pascali-Bonaro.
The book is based on the documentary of the same name – I recommend checking out both. They each convey how childbirth can be a joyful experience, not the frightening, and/or clinical experience we are taught to expect. For anyone who is pregnant, read this book ASAP! And I highly recommend it for anyone who is contemplating having a baby.
I can’t recommend the book enough. It’s just a great read: inspiring, calming, empowering, interesting and helpful.
