pending any severe changes in the pregnancy between now and labor...what are some books that will motivate me? I don't need much more in the way of comparisons to RCs, mostly on success stories that will empower me.
With second pregnancy, I read: The VBAC Companion: The Expectant Mother's Guide to Vaginal Birth After Cesarean. There were lots of stories plus fantastic motivational tips.
I will be attempting a VBA2C in April, so I'll probably read it again, just to refresh my memory.
papagena:Ditto pp's suggestion, as well as the Ina May Guide to Natural Childbirth. Her statistics alone are so amazing that it has given me a stronger belief that my body can do this.
I agree with this. Plus, there is a book by Dr. Hamm maybe called "Stop! Don't Cut Me Again" or "Don't Cut Me Again" or something like that. It is a little pink book, but it is just VBAC and VBAmC birth stories. I thought it was very inspirational. (some end in CBAC too)
