Reading List





  • Ina May's Guide to Childbirth- I love this book! It was such an empowering, informative, and comforting read when I was struggling to decide on natural birth.
  • The Best Birth: Your Guide to the Safest, Healthiest, Most Satisfying Labor and Delivery- I know a lot of natural birth advocates don't like this book because of how much it feeds into some of the standard medical practices that make a natural hospital birth difficult. I agree with those concerns, but when I was dealing with figuring out if a natural birth was for me, this book did a good job of breaking down some of the polarization of the discussion, and I appreciated that.

Equally Shared Parenting

  •  Halving It All: How Equally Shared Parenting Works--A thorough look at some of the complications of equally shared parenting. It's accessible and includes interviews with equally sharing couples, so it's not just presented as an idealized hypothetical.
