Preparing for Childbirth and Motherhood is overwhelming (in many, many different ways). People prepare differently. I like classes. So, I took several classes.
I am a reader. So, I read. Lots and lots of books.
These books were the most helpful to me…

Ina May’s Guide to Childbirth by Ina May Gaskin

***My internet is down and I’m trying to get ready for Lina’s First Birthday Party on Sunday (you know, the one for now…90 people). Pardon the fact I didn’t provide links to the books. I’ll do that when I have a moment, I promise!
