3rd Trimester

Book advise about last trimester of pregnancy and labor?

So my husband wants to read a book about what to expect when I go into labor since we couldn't make a prenatal class. Anyone know of a great book for me and him to read on the third trimester and going into labor?

Re: Book advise about last trimester of pregnancy and labor?

  • I'm not too sure about books, but if you have Netflix there's a DVD called "Due Dads the man's guide to labor and delivery". A book for the third trimester is "What to Expect". Honestly, I'd scour the Internet for all of the info I could find. I LOVE webmd and their pregnancy guide, as well as the health guru pregnancy website. The health guru has pretty graphic videos, but it will show you the good, the bad, the ugly, and the flat out nasty!

  • I don't know if you're planning on a natural birth, but H and I read "Natural Hospital Birth The Best of Both Worlds" by Cynthia Gabriel...even if you're not planning on going completely intervention/med free and aren't interested in the birth plan info, I think the explanation of the different stages of labor/delivery was very good--my H appreciated the detail.
