With my first pg, I rented every pregnancy and birth book at my local library and out of all of them this: http://www.amazon.com/Mommy-Ultimate-Guide-Pregnancy-Birth/dp/0738214604 ,was my favorite. I like it because it has such a variety of info. I wanted to be prepared for anything that could happen during labor, not just if things went well, but for the complications that can arise too. I wanted to be able to know my options and know what to expect.
I also read lots of books on laboring med-free, but don't really have a favorite for those. I was never able to find one good book with tons of laboring positions. This pg I'm hoping to find one.
ETA: in case that link doesn't work, that book is called The Mommy Doc's ultimate guide to pregnancy and birth. It's written by three OBGYN females who are also moms.
My H really enjoyed this book.
I liked it, too, as it was more realistic and humorous than the ones I read.
